September eleventh, two thousand and one was a horrific day for all of America. Many lives were lost, some friends, some family, and some who we may have never met. Everyone felt the fear from the terrorist attack rising in the air that day. But even though it was a day of darkness, light was shed on each and every one of us. People from all over felt the pain of loss, but we banded together to help those in need. Normal people with everyday jobs came to the rescue with boats in the great boatlift. America came together on that day of infamy and even though it was a terrible day good came out of it as well.
In the great boatlift many different kinds of boats came to the rescue. They lined up at the edge of the island and carried people to safety. Over nine hours regular people showed kindness through their actions by helping people who would have otherwise been doomed. Nine-eleven showed that world is full of evil, but it also showed that the world is full of even more good.
