World Trade Center – Movie Reaction – Part 2
Posted by gshstudy on August 15, 2006
I went to see this movie with 2 of my children, Chris and Taylor. I was curious what there reaction would be. Taylor was 7 and Chris was 10 when the original events occurred. Both agreed on several key points of the movie.
1. It gave them a better understanding of what the families went through on Sept 11, 2001. “… Made it more personal rather then being something that happened far away.” said Chris when asked his reaction. They both felt it brought it much closer to home.
2. They both also agree that as tragic, sad and horrifying as the events of that day are, it also showed the good that we as a race are capable of. It showed the strength that holds us together.
But most importantly, they noticed how there relationship with Christ/God had helped them through these difficult times. Taylor noted, “It is sometimes is hard to realize but you have to know that every thing happens for a reason and sometimes you don’t want them to happen but they do, and i have many reasons to believe that is true.”
I for one can definitely relate to their feelings.
