Nach einer Naturkatastrophe bleibt nur ein kleines Zeitfenster, um die Chance zu nutzen, den Wiederaufbau effektiv in Gang zu bringen, bevor die Welt sich wieder etwas anderem zuwendet. Wer sollte die Verantwortung übernehmen? Als ein monströser Tornado ihre Heimatstadt erfasste, übernahmen die Schwestern Caitria und Morgan O’Neill – gerade 20 und 24 Jahre alt – die Führung und bringen nun anderen bei, dasselbe zu tun. (Gefilmt bei TEDxBoston.)
