t's been 16 years since the tragic events of 9/11, but, remarkably, stories of courage and valor continue to surface as we learn more about the silent heroes who saved hundreds of lives that day.
This story that was a closely-kept secret — until now.
No American needs to be reminded of the tragic events of September 11th, 2001.
We’re surrounded by the emotional, social, political and cultural ramifications of this tragic day almost every day.
With so much media coverage in the days, weeks, and months after the event, you may think you heard every story of courage there was to hear.
But one recent story proves there’s still much about that day (and the days following) that haven’t gone public.
This summer, Christopher Nolan's WWII film Dunkirk, was shared with audiences all over the world.
That harrowing tale focused on the real-life rescue of over 3oo,000 troops who were stuck between an encroaching Nazi army and the sea. With nowhere to run or turn, it looked like their lives, as well as the fate of the war, was in grave danger.
Remarkably, the mission, code-named Operation Dynamo, was a success, and thousands owe a debt of gratitude to the brave civilian sailors and rescuers who, with no military experience, put themselves in harm's way to save others.
It’s a story of heroism, plain and simple. And it resonated with audiences worldwide, pulling in almost 500 million dollars, worldwide, as of this publication date.
That movie informed millions. But what many didn't know is that America has an eerily similar story. One that took place on September 11th, 2001.
The story is that of the incredible civilian-led rescue of the victims of 9/11 immediately following the collapse of the Twin Towers that fateful September morning.
And you will definitely want to hear it…
