New York Says Thank You, the Movie

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Apr• 15•11

One more video today.  This one a trailer for a documentary film coming out in movie theaters later this year.  If you don’t know the story of New York Say Thank You, you should learn it.  New York Says Thank You is one the great stories and organizations of our time.  It will make any cynic a believer again in the human spirit.

I am fortunate to know the foundation’s creator, Jeff Parness, and to call him a friend.  What Jeff and a growing group of New York firefighters — and now everyday Americans — have built is the stuff of miracles.  They should be awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom. This video trailer offers a tiny glimpse into what they do.

P.S. You can sponsor a stitch on the 9/11 Flag for as little as $5.  You know the one — the one that was still flying that day.
