  1. Lew,

    Thank you for posting this wonderful video. Its one of the few things I could watch this weekend. I could not turn on the radio, television and other repetitious media that I felt was exploiting the even that happened ten years ago. Or having to listen to the same thing over and over and over again about 9/11.

    This was sure by far one of the best videos I have seen all weekend! 😉


  2. Jeremy, along with remembering what happened and how we were attacked, stories as this, numbering in the hundreds of not thousands are what really needs told.

    We often think of New Yorkers as cold, heartless and uncaring. This video disproves that instantly.

    It also dispels the notion of the greedy manipulative wealthy as most all of those boats belong to people with a little wealth.

    It’s a story of ordinary people doing an extraordinary thing without consideration of pay.


  3. As per what I might have told you in private, I came very close to moving to New York about 5 years ago because I had a good opportunity there. But some thing here was better.

    I agree with you that there is a bunch of good people and stories that are never told by media, even the ones like the one you grabbed from Youtube. And it saddens me directly because I know better than that. But I am not going to take all direct aim at the snoozemedia because with 100K or more of derivative stories, one can’t fit them all. But they could have done better.

    And since NYC is really the one of two capitols of news in the united states, I don’t understand why I have not heard more from them. Maybe its just that they want to move on?

    And no, I do not believe most americans are profiling, hillybilly idiots. Most of the time, you’ll find them as caring, nuturing, loving helpful to people who might need a hand up (no, not a hand out) to bring them alongside at their level of life and may be to an upper rung on the ladder of life.

    What most americans despise is being used as pawns for financial or political preening OR being used to push themselves down further without a significant reason.
