It's been 10 years, but I still remember what life was like pre-9/11.. life was good. I was a TV news producer in San Antonio and even though jaded, had never encountered the horror and pain that I would write about for years to come after that September morning. Remember Me's portrayal of those events was judged harshly by critics, despite Will Fetters explaining what his intentions were while writing the script:
It seems people didn't seem to get what the film was about. I think on some level, even getting what the film is about, people aren't necessarily going to like it. I think preconceptions tend to play a role, and what this film was, in a lot of ways, was a study of grief and a study of these "bolts from the blue" that alter the trajectory of life
This year the mastermind of the attacks is dead, and a new Freedom Tower is taking shape as it gets closer to a 2013 debut. But for the families of those who died that day, life will never be the same. With the tenth anniversary of the attacks coming up, I hope you join Robert Pattinson News in honoring those victims. There are many ways you can get involved. We can never go back to life before 9/11, but we can certainly be united as a world community determined to not let it happen again.
