9/11: One Day in America is an official collaboration with the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, as a documentary series which focuses on the tragic moments on the morning of September 11th 2001. Stories told by truly incredible survivors of the attacks.
On September 11th 2001, so many people innocently went about their normal morning routine before heading to work on what was a very normal day having no idea the tragedy that was about to come. In New York City a plane hit one of the twin towers and the world watched thinking it was a truly terrible accident until a second plane hit the second tower and it was clear that America was under attack.
As a 14 year old I can still remember coming home from school and seeing the news as the plane hit the pentagon and the fourth was “brought down” we later found out about the heroics of those on board United 93. Going to school the following day in an English lesson we talked about it with newspaper reports, all struggling to understand it.
In all honesty even now twenty years later I still cannot understand this truly tragic and horrendous day, which then turned to weeks, months and years of grief for so many people. The brave emergency service workers doing their duty and not really having any idea what exactly was happening.
Over the past few weeks I have found myself watching so many documentaries about this day and the true amazing moments of human courage to help save others, it really has been an emotional journey to see and hear about more stories from this day.
Forever rest in peace to all those people from around the world who were impacted on that day and still now.
Here is a very first for Let’s Go To The Movies, a blog post about a restaurant. But have no fear this is very very VERY movie related so do not worry about that. I made my first visit to a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co Restaurant on Friday while in London, this is currently the only one in the UK as well.
Awww I think thats so nice that Chris is doing it 🙂 Yes I love SATC cast in what ever they do.
Sex And The City star Chris Noth is paying tribute to his late father – he has agreed to promote life insurance awareness in the U.S.
Noth was nine years old when his dad Charles, an insurance salesman, lost his life in a car crash, leaving his mother Jeanne to support the family and put Noth and his brothers through college on her husband’s policy.
Now the star has agreed to become the spokesperson for Life Insurance Awareness Month in September to encourage Americans to take care of their loved ones by investing in insurance policies.
He says, “I know from personal experience that life insurance can be the bedrock of a family’s financial security.”
