    This is something that I didn't hear about ten years ago and I think I should have. Your opinion???

    SOMETHING YOU WILL NOT FORGET………..
    UNSUNG HEROES WE DON’T HEAR ABOUT, AND MOST OF US DIDN’T KNOW ABOUT AFTER 911 BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES, TRYING TO UNDERSTAND HOW THESE PEOPLE MUST HAVE FELT SEEKING TO GET OFF THE ISLAND AND THE FEAR AND ALL THE UNKNOWN TO ALL, INCLUDING THE RESCUERS.

    PEOPLE COMING TOGETHER IN TIME OF CRISIS…….

    YOU COULD NEVER PLAN FOR THIS ……..EVER!


    This is what Americans are all about.

    I know everyone has been innundated with 9/11 stories but this is one I had never heard before.

    A 9-11 story I hadn't heard.
    Good people!!!

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

        It was all new to me too. Everyone I have told about it say the same. WOW, when did that story come out? I don't know why not, it is a great story.

              Ever since I was a young fry and started sleeping with all those sailors I have loved sailors ever since. This video just gives me about 500,000 more reasons to love sailors!

                Hugs to you, Betty, for your zany posts that always bring a smile, and to you, Scott, who are usually on the giving end of things. And to everyone else who makes this forum the special place that gives so much, and refuses to give up. 🤗
