United 93 at Tribeca

'United 93': Sobs and Applause

"United 93" is a movie of firsts. It was made from the heart and not to make money, certainly. It’s a short movie but one that you never want to see end — not because the story is so appealing, but because you know what the end is, and you never want it to come.
Lord willing, and though it is with grim anticipation, I plan on seeing this film on opening night.

Just reading the reviews and commentary is wrenching enough. Nevertheless, if the film is as "tastefully" done as most reviewers say, I believe everyone should see this film...

...if for any reason, to remember. I can only imagine how the families and friends of the heroes of Flight 93 felt when they left the theather.

Friedman ponders, "I don’t know if 'United 93' has given them closure or permission to keep reliving this horror."

While I prefer not to speak of anything regarding how the survivors cope with this tragedy... for the rest of us, I say we keep the wounds open.

Never submit. Never forget.

I can't wait to see it, myself. Family members of the victims are recommending the movie. How can we resist it?
