9/11 Movie Spotlight & Movie Prize Pack Giveaway

When I was a child, I remember my mother saying that she would never forget the day that President Kennedy was assassinated.  Even decades after the day.  I didn't understand that at the time.  Then, I experienced that forever-etched-in-my-memory-kind-of-day when the terror attacks of 9/11 happened.   I was scheduled to give a safety training class and had just set up the materials for the class in our conference room.  A co-worker walked in and switched the television to news coverageThe day as we knew it just simply stopped.  We cancelled training and left the room open and the news coverage running so that employees could filter in and watch throughout the day.  I will never forget standing in that room, watching so many people walk in and simply stare at the television screen in silence.  There was an emptiness that I had never felt before--and that I will never forget.

Last week, a movie focused on that day opened in theatres.  9/11 tells a story of terror, hope, courage and survival in a horrific scene that most of us could never imagine.  I wanted to share some details about the film--and facts about that day and its aftermath.  As part of this spotlight, the 9/11 film has sponsored a prize pack giveaway for one interested reader at the end of this post--including a Guide to Talking to your Children About 9/11.

About 9/11 the movie.
9/11 opened in theaters on September 8 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).
In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.
Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.
With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these fives are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.

The blog app below shares several facts about 9/11 and resources--along with some behind the scenes interviews with the film's stars, Charlie Sheen, Gina Gershon, and Luis Guzman.
