Earlier this week I finished watching the new National Geographic documentary titled “9/11: One Day in America.” I cannot recommend this program highly enough. The documentary does not focus on pundits or politicians and what they did that day. Rather, it focuses on the lives and stories of the people at ground zero in Manhattan. We became familiar with many of these faces 20 years ago in the immediate aftermath. It is good to see so many of them again telling their stories in long form.
I know that there are many retrospectives that have been produced in the lead-up to the 20th anniversary. But this one really is the one to watch.
I saw the program streaming on Hulu. I think it is on Disney+ as well. I’m sure you can find it elsewhere. Find it and watch. See the trailer below.
