September 11, 2001 Remembrance Week Day 5...The Days After

Three days after the Towers were destroyed the President of the United States joined those at Ground Zero...



The National Geographic Channel is presenting a day long series Remembering 9/11 on September 11. Here is a snippet of the interview with President Bush. It has aired once already. It is well worth watching. People think they know what happened in the White House, but you really do not. We and the pundits are full of conjecture, but unless you were there in those meetings gleaning information and facts that just weren't available, you never really know what was said, thought nor felt. More importantly none of us know what the responsibility to protect this nation felt like in the days after 9/11...the world changed and everyone, including the Presidency of the United States had to change with it.



Watch the entire interview with former President Bush September 11 on the National Geographic Channel.

National Geographic Channel presents George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview, a world premiere documentary that reveals exclusive, first-person insight into the former president's experience following the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the most in-depth on-camera interview he has ever given on the subject, President Bush recalls what he was thinking and feeling and what drove the real-time, life-or-death decisions he faced in the first minutes, hours and days after the most lethal terrorist attacks ever on U.S. soil. Hear in unprecedented, intimate detail what he grappled with as both commander in chief, and as a man concerned for his family and fellow citizens. George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview also takes viewers behind the scenes with extensive archival footage and exclusive materials directly from his library that open a new window into his personal experiences during that historic day that changed the face of America, and the world, forever.

By the way...no matter what some may say, or some in the political arena may want to happen,  the site were the Twin Towers stood will always be called Ground Zero in this home.You can't change the name of historical reality, especially when you watched the event take place live and for hours you did not know if loved ones were alive or dead. It haunts your dreams, it always will. You have a right to not forget and to remember anyway you choose including the name you give such a holy site....

Until next time,
