My Thoughts on United 93

I just got done watching United 93 for the first time. It’s two weeks in a row for September 11th-based movies. Like last time, I’m not really sure how you describe such a movie. Watching it without any emotion: it’s just another movie. However, when I really think about these lives and how they knew they were living their final moments, it really gets me. There was a part where they did a very deep drop, and at first I wasn’t thinking much of it — but then I realized, this was like a roller-coaster (I hate roller-coasters).  This was like the dip that normally comes back to an upgrade — only this one didn’t.  How these people had the courage to go against everything, really spoke to me.  I knew the story of what happened on that flight, but I never really could fully grasp the depth of it.  Maybe it’s because I never fly.

This movie should be seen.  As I said last time, forgetting about that day will only cause us to relive it in another attack.  History virtually always repeats itself, and unless we stand up it’s going to again.  Last time it was harder than the first.  If anything, this should be a warning.
