The video imbedded here is about the boat rescues on 9/11. I had never heard of this before. Awesome! Bring Kleenex for what is said, as well as the memories it is sure to evoke.


Whenever I remember the events on 9/11, I cannot separate image from emotion. And I see my emotions reflected on the face of every American whose eyes met with mine during those tragic hours, days, weeks following that unanticipated attack against our country. Looking back on those days, I recall that we were all brothers and sisters, fathers and mothers, sons and daughters. Who wouldn’t have given his right arm or just a shoulder to lean on to anyone else who needed it? It was also a moment for the American people to shine in virtue.

Here is a video you may not have seen yet. It shows us as we truly are — ordinary, common, everyday people — true Americans and true heroes. If this were you, I know you would have done the same thing.

    Hello Lilly! Thank you for the reblog!

    AWARD ALERT: I’ve been setteling into a new role as catechetical directer at a new center for new evangelization in NY, so I have not been able to keep up with the blogging activities as much lately. We’ll be getting the ball rolling again very soon. In the meantime, here’s something I think you and your blog deserve: The Super Sweet Blogging Award. Please check out the post on Biltrix for details. God bless!
