Response to 9/11 Documentary

    102 minutes was difficult to watch, but I think it's important that people watch it. People who weren't there don't get a real sense of what happened. They understand the basic facts; the towers were hit, the towers fell, but they don't understand the depth of everything that was going on. This documentary shows exactly what the people there were going through. Yes, there are some scenes that are disturbing, but what happened was disturbing. This documentary doesn't just cut out all the bad parts because it's kind of difficult to see. They show you what happen, everything that happened, and that's why I think it's important.
    I think that during some instances in the documentary the camera people should have stop taking footage. For instance, when people were injuried, I don't think that they should have shot some of those things. The people who were injuried already had enough on there plates, and they didn't need someone sticking a camera into their face on top of everything. I do understand that it's a part of what happened there, but, out of courtesy, I don't think that they needed to capture that.
