In Loving Memory

World Trade Center is a 2006 film about the terrorist attack which occurred on September 11, 2001. An event which occurred 16 years ago today. I was only 6 years old when it happened. Most people my age remember exactly what they were doing when it happened. I don’t know why, but I actually don’t really remember what I was doing or how I felt. I think I was too young to understand how the world worked. It took me a few years to fully grasp the circumstances of what happened. I first saw this movie in middle school as part of my social studies class. I had never even heard of the movie before that moment. The movie kind of flew under the radar despite being an Oliver Stone movie. There are a lot of familiar faces here. All of which come together to make a moving film about tragedy, survival, and the courage the police and firefighters had at the time. It’s probably the most well made movie about 9/11. A day I, as an American, will never forget.
