  1. I loved this!
    This is a big piece of the picture (that we didn’t know about til now) that will remain in our hearts and memories of that awful day when war came here to our shores.
    It fills in the horrific scene of the twin towers burning and collapsing with the bravery and humanity that we humans are capable of performing when the tragedies happen.
    We knew about the firemen and the police who risked their lives — and now we know about the people who risked theirs with their boats. In some scenes they are pulling onto the shore with the smoke and ash covering their ability to see but they moved in anyway and took people covered in ash onto the safety of their boats.
    They all deserve the Metal of Honor!
