Nat Geo Remembering 9/11
Tune in to National Geographic tonight at 10 pm for the world premier of Remembering 9/11
National Geographic Channel presents George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview, a world premiere documentary that reveals exclusive, first-person insight into the former president’s experience following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the most in-depth on-camera interview he has ever given on the subject, President Bush recalls what he was thinking and feeling and what drove the real-time, life-or-death decisions he faced in the first minutes, hours and days after the most lethal terrorist attacks ever on U.S. soil. Hear in unprecedented, intimate detail what he grappled with as both commander in chief, and as a man concerned for his family and fellow citizens. George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview also takes viewers behind the scenes with extensive archival footage and exclusive materials directly from his library that open a new window into his personal experiences during that historic day that changed the face of America, and the world, forever.
Honestly, I strongly encourage my readers and lurkers to watch this show. This is a crucial part of the story of 9/11 abscured for the past 10 years by those who sought to benefit politically on the tragedy of 9/11. With that said, I have to say that I may not be able to bring myself to watch the show. I have a difficult time viewing images of the death of Marcello Matricciano, Jose Angel Martinez and David Reed Gamboa Brandhorst.
To most people, the victims of 9/11 are nameless, faceless vicitims. It seems cruel to say so but ask yourself , your neighbor or your best friend to give the name of at least one victim of 9/11. You and I both know the answer already.
Thanks to the efforts of the organizers of ’Project 2996‘ , I know three by name. It makes 9/11 all the more personal to me, watching the towers burn is like watching their deaths. This is not the memory I want carry of Marcello, Jose, and David.
