Commemoration Open Trackback Weekend

“People mourn in different ways. Some lock their hearts in a box and nurse their grief in private; others head to the nearest public square to rend their garments. So, too, with 9/11 movies: Some, like this spring’s “United 93,” distrust the urge to mythify and replay the tragedy with blunt fidelity. Others seek comfort in commemoration, looking for stray moments of indomitability and building emotional statuary to the fallen.”

-Ty Burr-

See the movie…and feel it for yourself sweet friends.
What say you about grief and commemoration?

    I rarely see movies; but think I shall see this one. The LA Times reviewer thought, among other things, that it was too “right wing”. That sounded good enough to me.

    I remember September 11th 2001, I went to the Bar that night and drank my sorrows away.

    You know what’s weird? I was at a subway station on 54th(?) street earlier this year, and a sign in the terminal said ‘world trade centers –>’ like they were still there.

    Most of you know I don’t put a whole lot of faith in polls, but this is one I really hope is true. The blame surely should be put on Hezbollah, because after all, they threw the first stone! There’s many more reasons than that to hope Israel wipes He…

    I will fill myself with Love And send that out into the world. How others treat me is their path How I react is mine.:-)

    I wonder if Angel even recognizes the above comment because the first time I remember seeing that I was thinking that maybe Angel was one of the ones in that 1969, Coca-Cola Commercial where there’s a bunch of singers singing “I’d like to buy the world a home and furnish it with love, Grow apple trees and honey bees, and snow white turtle doves. I’d like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, I’d like to buy the world a Coke and keep it company. It’s the real thing, Coke is what the world wants today.”

  7. Brooke says:

    I want to see it, too… And after the news of the foiled bombing plots this week, it should be all the more poignant.

    I saw the movie “World Trade Center” yesterday. Overall, I’d say that it’s a good film. It puts a human face on the two trapped men and their wives. But here’s what I just couldn’t get out of my mind….So few of those first responders got out alive! Those families are still bereaved today.

    Liberals, acting like mad men on a senseless rampage have gone past the point of no return. They are now openly charging Bush (and Blair) with staging a faux plot to blow up thousands of America-bound passengers.

    I like what you have to say, but it seems like it’s all information I have heard at other places first. I guess it is nice to have lots of people say it in lots of different ways, just so anyone can understand.
