The Untold Story of the 9/11 NYC Boatlift
Americans know how to pull together in a crisis way better than FEMA or any other government agency.

Watch this amazing video and be reminded of just how we Americans can work together. It’s too bad this nationalistic effect only occurs when we’re up against seemingly overwhelming events.
