I saw the movie United 93 today. This movie is amazing and I highly recommend it to everyone. If you have been living in a cave and don't know, the movie United 93 is the story of the brave passengers who grounded the plane to save it's target, either the White House or the Capitol.
I expected the movie to be slanted, as most Hollywood movies are. But I was wrong. It was amazing. It was factual. There was not a sound in the theater and at the end people just sat there for a few seconds (although it seemed much longer) in silence.
I had tears in my eyes. I was proud to be an American, proud of these people. Each and every passenger was a hero. I was also angry at the evil terrorists and the religion that inspired them.
If you read the MSM, this film is described as "controversial", as "the film that no one wants to see". It may be controversial to some, but everyone should see this film, EVERYONE! This is not fiction, this is not a made up story to sell tickets. This is real. This happened. I saw the events live and in color on Fox News Channel on September 11, 2001.
This movie has been described as "difficult to watch, but impossible to turn away from", and that is very accurate. At times I caught myself squeezing the fabric of my slacks, or hugging myself, or balling my hands into fists. I had to tell myself to relax. The movie almost makes the audience feel a part of the action, like I was actually on the plane. We need to feel this way.
We need to ask ourselves, "If I were in that situation, would I have the courage to ACT as those people did, or to at least stay out of their way?" I hope that I could be that brave. I pray that I would make my country proud as they did.
American needs to be reminded what happened on September 11, 2001. Time makes the horror of that day fade, we need to never let that happen. We need to remember why we fight, why we are in Afghanistan and Iraq. Why we must not allow Iran to go nuclear. Why crazy tyrants like Ahmadinejad must not be allowed to spread their evil and accomplish their goals. Americans must not grow weary and weak. To forget will make sure we get caught with our pants down again, just like we did on 9/11.
Writer / director / producer Paul Greengrass is a liberal. He says we must put our liberal and conservative views aside when it comes to this terror and protecting the United States. Rush Limbaugh has done a sit-down interview with Mr. Greengrass. The printed interview will come out in the next three weeks in the Limbaugh Letter. He is airing excepts from the interview on his radio show.
Never Forget! Never grow weak. Never let our guard down. Remember September 11, 2001 Americans! See this movie.
