United 93

United 93 is one of those movies that I've been wanting to see, but I've never really been in the mood for. When are you in the mood to see a movie about one of the worst days you can ever remember? Last night we watched it, and I'm glad we did. While it was incredibly depressing, it was also oddly inspiring - that these ordinary people, people who could have just as easily been you or me, managed to overcome the terrorists on the plane and take it down before it made it to Washington. It is not a movie for the faint-of-heart, but it will remind you and amaze you about the regular people who became heroes on 9/11.

That's one of the ones that I wanted to be sure to see in the privacy of my own home cause I don't know how I'll react. Glad to hear that you could handle it though!

I was reading about a Dateline special on the air traffic controllers who were working that morning and their stories are just heartwrenching.
