Depois de um desastre natural ocorrer, existe apenas uma pequena janela de oportunidade para reunir esforços efectivos de recuperação antes que o mundo volte sua atenção para outro lado. Quem se deveria encarregar? Quando um tornado assustador atingiu a sua cidade natal, as irmãs Caitria e Morgan O’Neill – apenas 20 e 24 anos de idade na época – tomaram as rédeas da situação e agora estão a ensinar os outros a como fazerem o mesmo. (Filmado no TEDxBoston.)
