“All Gave Some – Some Gave All”
As this is the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks (September 11, 2001) in whick 2977 people lost their lives, we here at My Little Empire decided to look at 2 of the better Documentaries about the September 11 attacks. We have put this page togeather as a memorial to the 9/11 attacks on the World trade Center because of the reach and affect these attacks have had through out the world.
We could have mentioned lots of movie/documentaries here like World Trade Centre, United 93, Flight 93, Loose Change 9/11: An American Coup, Hotel Ground Zero, The Path the 9/11 and Fahrenheit 9/11. We chose 9/11: Falling Man and 102 Minutes That Changed America mainly because these movie/documentary do not set out to blame anyone and there is none of this conspiracy stuff thought out them. We also choose these because we thing these are the best documentary about 9/11.
9/11: The Falling Man
9/11: The Falling Man is a 2006 documentary film about the picture and the story behind it. It was made by American filmmaker Henry Singer and filmed by Richard Numeroff, a New York-based director of photography. The film is loosely based on Junod’s Esquire story. It also drew its material from photographer Lyle Owerko’s pictures of falling people. It debuted on March 16, 2006, on the British television network Channel 4. It later made its North American premiere on Canada’s CBC Newsworld on September 6, 2006, and has been broadcast in over 30 countries. The U.S. premiere was September 10, 2007, on the Discovery Times Channel. – read more about the falling man photo, click here

102 Minutes That Changed America is a 109-minute American television special documentary film that was produced by the History channel and premiered commercial-free on September 11, 2008, marking the seventh anniversary of the 2001 attacks. The film depicts, in virtually real time, the New York-based events of the attacks primarily using raw footage from mostly amateur citizen journalists.

We should never forget the people that have died in the 9/11 attacks and the people that survive attacks but are still affected by them.
They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest We Forget
