As the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks approaches, television will commemorate the day with specials and documentaries. But at the nation’s cineplexes, there is considerably less ceremony
Films such as Oliver Stone’s World Trade Center (2006) and ‘ critically lauded United 93 (2006) found respectable audiences while fending off criticism when sensitivities were still high. The criticism even stung films with a tangential relationship to the attack, such as 2010′s Remember Me

 

The drama featured a 9/11 surprise ending, which took a “drubbing” says producer Nick Osborne.
“Everyone was, to a certain extent, terrified of doing it,” Osborne says. “It’s such a sensitive topic. But it was the right ending.”

 

I am sure that those of us old enough to remember, can tell anyone exactly where we were when we first heard of the news of the horriffic attacks on America.  As the ten year anniversary is upon us, remember those that lost their lives, and vow to make a positive difference in the way we live our lives.  I will  be joining groups here in my hometown by dedicating  time on that Sunday, and one Sunday a month thereafter, to cleaning up the buildings that house all of the public servents in my community.  They often perform a thankless, stressful job, for little pay.  They deserve our support today and everyday.  What will you do to make a difference?

 

Here is a ink to a Facebook page where you can share your story of where you when on that fatefull day in September of 2001, Where were you on 9/11?

 

 

We will never forget.....

i personally find it ridiculous that critics say that REMEMBER ME was made too soon after 9/11, and it's still a sore subject. Uh, hello? It was an event that not only changed America, but the whole world. It will always be a sore subject no matter how many years pass. And it's never too early to remember the people who lost their liver that day, whether we know them or not.

I totally agree, though I was really sad at the end of the movie.    I had some serious issues with depression after the attacks, and seeing something like that on screen and so realistic, struck a nerve for me.  I do now feel like it was a respectful homage to those that lost their lives that fateful day.  They were people, that lived normal lives, that were loved.  So Sad......
