Collection of 9/11 Video-Clips

Truthdig has a collection of videos of what happened on 9/11 and shortly afterwards.  I found a couple particularly touching - one was the first show that David Letterman did after 9/11, the other the first show that Jon Stewart did afterwards.  They both bring back that very vulnerable, very open time that I miss.  I don't miss why it happened, of course, only the soft humanity that we all saw and felt so deeply.  It makes me wish that we had all done an 8 minute video-clip of ourselves right then to remind us of how we can be.  Here's the link.

There is also an amazing trailer for the soon-to-be-released movie - “9/11: Press for the Truth” –- about the efforts of the “Jersey Girls,” the women who lost husbands in the World Trade Center attacks, and who almost single-handedly goaded Republican lawmakers into holding hearings into the attacks.  This is very hopeful after these last few days of realizing what Disney/ABC was able to pull over on us.  It is going to be something to see. 

Hat tip to Howie
