Always & forever… AKF, you will always be missed.
Taken on Friday, June 1st 10:30PM EST on Fulton Street
In light of the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2011, I urge you to watch this short documentary about the individuals we didn’t hear about on 9/11. These were the people that worked on the water and helped to relocate almost 500,000 individuals affected in the downtown NYC area in a 9-hour period. These people who we typically call “Average Joes” became heroes during the events in lower Manhattan on September 11.
In the twelve minutes it took for BOATLIFT to tell its story, as a viewer you feel that you’re re-living the day as it just happened. The raw emotions that are shown by these brave individuals in the documentary only touch the surface of how people are still coping with the events of this day.
Inspiration comes in all forms. For these sailors to come together for the sole purpose of wanting to help others in unknown circumstances is nothing short of bold, courageous and heroic.
Film is narrated by Tom Hanks, directed by Eddie Rosenstein; 2011
I received an important e-mail today. I know people like to delete chain e-mails because we think that no one will read them or actually pay attention.
However, after reading through this e-mail, it confirms once again that people are ignorant. How can people deny the physical evidence in existence that such traumatic events such as the Holocaust did not occur? I dare these people to visit the former concentration camps and see for themselves what torture and horrific activities occurred.
It is essential that we continue to remind everyone of these events to help make sure they never happen again. Please read below and help spread the word:
When I was a kid, I couldn’t understand why Eisenhower was so popular. Maybe this will explain why.
General Eisenhower Warned Us.
It is a matter of history that when the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect:
‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get up and say that this never happened’
This week, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offends’ the Muslim population, which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet.. However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving into it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended. This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the, six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests Who were ‘murdered, raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated’ while many in the world looked the other way!
Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
This e-mail is intended to reach 400 million people! Be a link in the memorial chain and help distribute this around the world.
How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center ‘NEVER HAPPENED’, Because it offends some Muslim???
FREEDOM ISN’T FREE…SOMEONE HAD TO PAY FOR IT!
