BOATLIFT Shows Anyone Can Be A Hero

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

Keep Holocaust Education in UK Schools

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!
