9/11

While watching a chatroom, I noticed someone bitching about there being alot of documentary programs about 9/11 on TV. Correct me if I'm wrong but this isnt a crime, right? It did effect so many countries. Not just America. So why shouldnt there be a documentary on TV about it? People still think and suffer to this day because of it and it's also educational for the younger generation, who were most likely too young to understand what happened on the actual day.

Most of these people appear to be from Britain. I'm not in any way trying to say that all people from Britain are small minded. I'm from the UK myself...what I'm trying to say is that there can be countless documentary stuff about England losing the World Cup or how the England manager likes to fuck around on his girlfriend, countless amount of news about how people are upset that England aint doing well and stuff...BIG DEAL! In my opinion, that type of news aint worth the time! 9/11 didnt effect me in that I knew someone who died in it, before anyone wants to judge me about my opinion. I do remember, and will remember for the rest of my life, what I was doing on that day.

I just think people should stop bitching and moaning about TV programs that focus on what happened on that day. Would they be less small minded if they knew someone who happened to be in the towers on that day? Would they be effected more if they happened to be there themselves and survived like so many didnt?. It baffles me, it really does!

I was actually amazed that on our TV stations, free-to-air mind you, that NOTHING was aired about 9/11. No documentaries, no tributes, nothing, apart from a small story on the evening news. I know people must move on, but its the largest act of terrorism in the last decade or so.

There's been stuff on the news today but no documentary things about it.

There was a few days ago...now on Sky (which you pay for) there was probably tons of things and it's not as if it's on everyday. Not like when Princess Diana died. She was in the papers and on tv everyday for 2 years. I actually find all the documentaries interesting. You learn and hear something new all the time about it and most people have moved on (very select few havent and who can blame them??) doesnt mean we forget what happened and it's a once the year thing. After posting this, someone made a smart ass comment about it and I got pissed enough to ban them >=]

I was just now listening to the news while I was making lunch..and I was amazed at this..It took 20 minutes for the towers to collapse, it took over 4 hours to read the names of the dead. One lady, who was married to an Australian who died in the 2nd tower collapse, said they found no trace of her husband. She has a grave for him, but it's empty. That's what brings tears to my eyes.

I watched something about Flight 93 with my husband... I felt the need to. We live 2 hours away from Shanksville, where the plane went down. I have visited the site... it brings tears to your eyes.

It's a shame that there are insensitive people who are actually bitching about a lot of 9/11 programs being shown at this time.

I agree with you both. I seriously do!

There was a program on TV over here..there were two guys filming with the firefighters and they happened to be with them during 9/11. One of them was in the second tower when the first collapsed. I sat with my hand over my mouth and then realised that I was crying. I couldnt believe what I was seeing. It was so hard hitting. I can't even begin to imagine what it must have been like to actually be there. I still have that program on vhs and I'm going to watch it later today.

just another point I'd like to make..I think we focus on the towers going down, and we kinda forget about the people that died also in the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania..I know I did, and I feel kinda ashamed that I did.
