Depois de uma catástrofe natural, só há uma pequena janela de oportunidade para reunir esforços efetivos de recuperação antes que o mundo volte a sua atenção para outro lado. Quem deve ser o responsável? Quando um tornado assustador atingiu a sua cidade natal, as irmãs Caitria e Morgan O’Neill — apenas com 20 e 24 anos na época — tomaram as rédeas da situação e agora estão a ensinar os outros a fazerem o mesmo. (Filmado no TEDxBoston.)
