September 11 is was one of those days where everyone’s heart dropped and a day we all will forever remember. Even to where we were the moment we saw the catastrophic attack and heard the news.
I can remember so vividly as to where me and my family was the day September 11th occurred. My kids were in school, my husband who was a truck driver at the time was preparing to hit the road and me, well, I was standing in the living room of one of my patience.
It was like the whole world stood still in disbelief that something like planes crashing into two towers weren’t real but, yet it was! I’ve never been so scared for those in the path and for any of my family who at the time were traveling a lot for their jobs.
My kids and I were so distraught, I’ve never rushed home so fast to meet with my husband and I was so glad he didn’t get on the road to travel. I wanted all my kids and family to stay close, no matter where you were or who you were with Sept 11 will always be etched in our minds as one of the horrible days of our lives and history!
9/11 opens 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.
