"I never want to say the word 'I should have'"

Words to live by.

Found here:
Boatlifters: The unknown story of 9/11
The captains and crew of the fleet of boats who rescued so many on 9/11 came together with no idea what they would be getting into and no idea whether Manhattan would be attacked again let alone their very own boats. All they knew were that desperate people were in need of help and they couldn’t turn their backs on them, even if that meant putting their own lives at risk

The boatlift was larger than Dunkirk. It is a mystery to me why it is almost unknown.

History is inspiring. Bravery is inspiring. It is shameful we no longer teach this to our children.
