If I Could Show You Any Movie In the World, This One Would Be It

On September 9, 2006, we went to see the movie World Trade Center. I wasn't sure if I wanted to see it, but I felt like I should see it. I'm afraid I'm not such a fan of Oliver Stone movies normally. But this movie touched me. It was the most profound experience I’ve ever had in a movie theater. This movie reminded me why our country is at war and why this war on terror is the right thing to do. I had already forgotten some of the emotion I had experienced on 9/11. The sadness, the ache, the fear, the pride, the bewilderment, the resolve – all those feelings had sort of been pushed to the back of my mind. This movie brought them all rushing back for me. I was a little ashamed that I had already forgotten so much. I was glad to be reminded. Watching this movie was a wonderful experience. It was good to feel the sadness and the resolve and all those things in between again. I’m proud to be an American. It’s a blessing that I don’t ever want to take for granted. I hope everyone sees this movie and I hope it touches them as it did me.

  6. I haven't seen it. I've avoided it because I know it's raw and emotional. I'll invest in a box of tissues and sit down with it soon. Thanks for the two posts on 9/11....nice tribute.
