A Reflection About 9/11/2001

Remember today that we are all children of a loving creator. As we remember 15 years ago we must be mindful of everyone who has perished on both sides of this “War on Terror” and much blood has been shed unnecessarily. There are no winners here. For us have a brighter future we have to free ourselves of suffering caused by hatred. One day we will see eternity and may that day be a time of forgiveness and peace. Love will find a way to bring us to that place we dream and hope for.

This movie by Oliver Stone tells the story of a group of Port Authority Police officers surviving in the rubble of the destroyed World Trade Center on September 11, 20o1. Nicholas Cage puts in a fabulous performance as Sgt. John McLoughlin along with Michael Peña who plays Officer Will Jimeno. This movie is less about the cause of the events but about the people who were doing their jobs that tragic day. Maria Bello and Maggie Gyllenhaal show the angst and waiting that many spouses felt that day as they waited for word about the fate of their loved ones.
