WTC Movie...

I saw this last night.
I must say that it was well done.
It didn't have the Oliver Stone Twist that I was expecting.
Much like the rest of his movies have had when they deal with real historical events.
There were a few touches conspiracy theories but nothing that really hurt the movie.
I think and my wife brought this up, that the one part that took away from the movie a bit was the amount of "known" actors in the movie.
I laughed a few times, there was some humor in it.
And I teared up a bit 3 times. I wont lie.
And I Hardly NEVER cry in a Movie.
I teared up in Crash with the little girl. Other then that I just don't tear.

I was and probably still am one of those people that say its too soon.
But I think people still need a reminder of what happened that day.
I was in the City when that happened. And never in my life had I seen NEW YORKERS or just PEOPLE in general be soooo somber, so respectful, and never had I seen the city where even the taxi drivers didn't want to honk their horns in the months after 9/11.

I want that to continue throughout our country.
Too bad we just don't see that kind of camaraderie in the city anymore or in our country. A togetherness against one common enemy. Instead we focus on our president, and come up with stupid conspiracy theories of all sorts to somehow put more weight on some maniacs side because we cant come to grips with the reality that it was SOOO EASY to attack us because we as a NATION are not together. We bicker left and right wing crap and don't focus on what we should be focusing on. And that is the survival of our nation.
