Nice Short on “Remembering 9/11” (Sort Of)

By Debbie Schlussel
The other day I watched a special of very short films starring Black actors or made by Black filmmakers. This one, “Date”, by liberal moviemaker Eva Saks, falls in the former category, and I thought it was good on many levels in putting our lives in the proper perspective to what happened on that fateful day seven years ago.
Still, it’s missing any reference to that major thing so many 9/11 movies miss: the “who”–as in the “who” that perpetrated it: Islamic terrorists. Still it’s very good. I liked it a lot and think you will, too. It’s just under three minutes until the credits.

Good stuff, Debbie! Thanks for posting, especially on today. It reminded me that my own problems pale in comparison to what others have faced and are facing as a result of that terrible day.
May we always be vigilant…..

A well-made short, but typical of the liberal mindset. Seven years after the attacks, far too many people in this country are inclined to mourn the victims as if they had died in some natural disaster, and not as victims of zealot murderers.

Nice little tribute that pulls on your heartstrings. There is no blaming on who did it and how to stop another 9/11. Unfortunately this society is so narcissistic it is all about “how I feel”. Never about accountability. I doubt if any networks will show the planes going through the towers again. Keith Olbermann wouldnt want that along with lame steam media. It might evoke emotions of anger.
