Depois de uma catástrofe natural, existe apenas uma pequena janela de oportunidade para dar a largada em esforços efetivos de recuperação antes que o mundo vire seu atenção para outro lugar. Quem deveria tomar a frente? Quando um terrível tornado atingiu sua cidade natal, as irmãs Caitria and Morgan O’Neill — com apenas 20 e 24 anos à época - tomaram as rédeas da situação e agora estão ensinando outras pessoas a fazer o mesmo. (Filmado no TEDxBoston.)
