I had a different post scheduled for today, but even 11 years after the twin towers fell, any topic other than the 9/11 attacks seem frivolous. Was it really that scary? Did things really change that day? the boys asked recently.
Yes. What a sad, sad day.
We watched the movie Artificial Intelligence* over the weekend. The boys got a glimpse of the twin towers as the protagonist flew toward a heavily flooded New York skyline. I guess the movie was filmed prior to 2001. The director, Steve Spielberg, imagined a city so affected by global climate change that most of it was underwater, but who could have foreseen an NYC skyline without the World Trade Center?
At any rate, I thought some of you might take interest in this NOVA special, Engineering Ground Zero. The documentary, five years in the making, the documentary debuted on PBS last year.
