as close as you can get to being in nyc when the shit hit the fan. very impactful and intense even for someone as callous and tired of 9/11 talk as me. could have been edited better, but you can’t beat it in terms of content (these guys were the only ones in the building and on the scene when it happened…they were also the only ones to provide pictures of the first plane hitting tower one). an essential american document comes yet again from the french.
don’t let reviews like this put you off:
Date: 16 April 2002
Summary: Most tragic event in American History.
I watched and taped the show March 10 about the World Trade. I can remember get up in the morning and going to work on September the 11th. It was like everyday, that I went to work and earn a living. Then suddenly I heard on the radio one of the World Trade Center buildings had been hit by an airplane, and the second building was hit within minutes. The horror I had felt on this day, I could not believe that someone would destroy the World Trade Center in the act of terrorism. Lots of innocence lives had been lost in this tragedy. I wonder if life in America will ever get back to normal the way it use to be? I wrote something for remembrance: America’s Lost Innocence: A moment in time that America lost its innocence. A moment that should not be forgotten. A moment that will live forever in our hearts and minds. September 11, 2001, a date that we should all remember.
Hope something like this never happen again. This should be showed on TV for the one year anniversary of the tragedy on September 11, 2002. God Bless America.”
