The Great Boatlift of 9/11

The Great Boatlift of 9/11

An amazing story I had not heard before. Or maybe it was mentioned when it happened, but I did not know how huge it was. Bigger than the boatlift at Dunkirk. When America came together!

  We certainly were busy watching the news right after 9/11, but we never saw this……BOAT-LIFT OF 9/11…..

You know, in the years since this happened, this is the first time I’ve ever seen this…I don’t even remember seeing/hearing about this evacuation on the news!

  The fact is, it was all done in 9 hours …500,000 people!

  This is a video well worth watching. The guy at the end (same guy who is at the beginning) has some great words to live by for all of us.

  Watch till the end. You won’t regret it. We will never forget what happened that day.

Barry/Efryim Shore
Efryim attributes his positive attitude to a conversation he had with his aunt at the age of seven. Efryim, originally from Boston, was looking out the window on a stormy New England day. It was cold and rainy and Efryim could think of many reasons to be upset. “What a horrible day,” he exclaimed. Just then his aunt came up behind him and chided him for seeing the negative. “What are you talking about?” she asked. “The rain and snow are so good for the world. It helps the plants to grow, it fills the river basins, and gives us water to drink. We can’t survive without rain!” “That was a seminal moment in my life,” he recalls. “My eyes were different from then on. I realized that I had a choice whether to see the good in a situation, or to focus on the opposite. Sometimes in the midst of a very hot or rainy day you can find yourself beginning to grumble and complain. Stop yourself right before the negative words leave your mouth and say, ‘Thank God I’m alive; I’m walking; I can smile!’” Efryim’s signature on his email says www but it isn’t followed by a domain name. Instead he gives new definition to the acronym – “What a Wonderful World!” As far as he’s concerned, it truly is.
