When the going get tough... the tough are us

Politics and conspiracies aside, those of us who really live on the water, serious sailors, can get behind those who stepped up, sailed up and manned up, 11 years ago.

Re: When the going get tough... the tough are us

Thanks for posting. First time I saw this a few years ago it really touched me. Every year when we travel north to the LI Sound we pass the ferry terminal where many of the "boat lift" people were plucked from. I always think of this film snip when I see it.
500,000 evacuated in 9 hours...truly amazing.

This year to see the new tower rising from the tip of Manhattan when we passed under the Verrzazanno bridge gave me goosebumps.

I'd bet that just about everyone can get behind that kind of example of the best of the human spirit.

I had never seen that. Thanks.
