Every year on the anniversary of the terrorist attacks MSNBC replays the original Today Show from September 11, 2001. They have been criticized, many saying we shouldn’t play footage of the planes crashing into the towers on TV. In fact, news directors around the country refuse to broadcast images of the plane’s impact. It’s too painful. Yes, it is and that is why you should watch it. I hope your children and grandchildren watch it someday, too. Let them see firefighters and EMTs race toward the danger to save innocent lives. People who were only guilty of being hard working Americans. Show them what evil is, but how our nation united in the days that followed. This video should make you cry. We need to be reminded of the horror of that day so that we never, ever forget.
