9/11 Boatlift

A friend of mine recently shared a link with me that was quite moving about 9/11 that I had not heard before.  The short, 12 min video was produced by Tom Hanks.

Boatlift is the epic story of the 9/11 boatlift that evacuated half a million people from the stricken piers and seawalls of Lower Manhattan. I had no idea that the 9/11 boat evacuation was larger than Dunkirk and they completed it so fast. The video is narrated by Tom Hanks who I am a big fan of as usually whatever he has a hand in turns out to be a great production. If you’ve never seen Band of Brothers set aside a couple weekend nights and watch one of Tom Hanks finer productions.
