Writer L.B. Gschwandtner recently posted on her Facebook page a Tom Hanks narrated film, Boatlift: An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience, about the lower Manhattan evacuation by boat of some 500 million people on 9/11. Produced and directed by Eddie Rosenstein, it is an extraordinary testament to Americans' ability to come together in a crisis.

The stirring film, made with support from philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, premiered September 8, 2011, on the tenth anniversary of that horrible day. 

The "9/11 Tenth Anniversary Summit: Remembrance | Renewal | Resilience" launched a national movement, Road to Resilience, a Website with much to offer.

I think it's important to watch this film. To remember.
