Flight 93

so did any of u guys see the movie flight 93? ive been thinking about it, and i have decided to see it. will see it in a few days. too intense for me, eventhough it has been 5 years since 9/11, sometimes the thought of that horrible day really get to me. also, i heard they started building the Freedom Tower in NY afew days ago. The year of completion is 2012. It will be hard to get used to seeing a new building standing where the 2 mighty twin towers once stood. still hard to get over sometimes, because i consider NY my second home.

I think I'll pass -- it really isn't my idea of entertainment...

I read some where that the Freedom tower will be 1776 ft tall. Also will have a huge light atop to symbolize freedom. It should be Interesting.

What is the movie based on? Were the flight recordings used? Cell phone calls?

I haven't seen it, but a lot of people are saying it's more like a documentary than an entertainment type movie. Definitely worth watching.

2002 Mercedes-Benz ML320 (sold)
2011 Chrysler Town & Country
2008 Toyota Camry Hybrid
2003 Yamaha V-Star 650 Classic
2002 Jaguar X-Type 2.5

I despise the fact this movie is being pushed hard by right wing talk radio fascists and Fox News. Those bastards ruined one of the few moments of national unity we've ever had in this sad country with their stupid Iraq war, and now they push this like 9-11 was something experienced by "their" side. The whole thing reeks of some attempt to rejuvinate support for their lousy war. Hannity is especially disgusting, ranting about "how liberals can be against the war after seeing this", when his beloved GOP has done little to avenge the deaths of these people, letting Osama continue shitting on us on the international airways while our troops die in Iraq in their phony oil war instead of finding this bastard and killing him. The real truth is the GOP hijacked the tragedy of these people's deaths to wage their phony oil war. I'll wait for it to be on cable.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
