9/11 Movie, adding perspective to our nation's tradegy



Life can change in a moment. The tragic events on 9/11 make that thought apparent. When people woke up that morning, no one knew that the would change in a single moment. Ever since that fateful morning, life as we know is hasn't been the same. While my children know non different, sometimes I wish for a simpler, less fearful time.

The 9/11 Movie tells the unlikely tale of a group of people stuck in a World Trade Center elevator. This unlikely group faced life's hardest moments together with complete strangers. They could have given up, succumb to the despair and let fate take over. Instead, these real people fought and found a way to never give up. Some people may not want to watch this movie because of the subject matter.

It can be upsetting to think about the day that the world changed. But, this story isn't about tragedy. It is about triumphant. People, even those people who would never interact with each expect for these circumstances, must work together. Commonality can be found in everyone is people look for it. Instead of only seeking the different, people need to look with a different perspective.

With Charlie Sheen as one of the main characters, viewers are challenged to think and see differently. Instead of the pre-conceived notion of him as a person, viewers see him as the character. A man who looks to help others and find a solution.

Again, the idea of perception is questioned. Sometimes, everyone needs to break down the barriers. After watching this movie, I hope that people learn to appreciate others. From looking past people to being closed minded, people's perceptions are keeping the world stagnant.

It is unfortunate that tragedy spurs people into action. Why can't people work together for the great good?

Take 90 minutes out of your busy life and watch the 9/11 Movie. This movie isn't about reliving a tragedy. Rather, the movie encourages everyone to inspire others to never give up, move forward, and never forget.

Disclosure: I received a screening link of this movie for review purposes. Opinions are my own.
