This 9/11, I finally felt strong enough to not burst into tears at the WTC footage (no, I didn't finish watching the ABC "docudrama"). Tonight, I chose to honor the memory of those that perished in these attacks by celebrating life and trying to move forward.
Live goes on, but I will never forget. Never.
Sidebar to the ABC network: By fabricating scenes and taking artistic license, you no longer honor the memory of those who lost their lives during the attacks of 9/11. Instead you cheapen the event and reduce it to entertainment. Sales of ad airtime. Ratings. Sweeps Week. And, as a result, you dishonor the very people whose memories you attempt to immortalize and remember through your "docudrama." Docudramas should be reserved for stories about unsolved mysteries and women who escape abusive husbands. Not for the largest and most terrible act of terrorism on U.S. soil.
Oh yeah, and while you're at it? Get your facts straight. Thanks.
