Over the past weekend I flew to New York City to participate in the screening of an hour-long documentary commemorating the 10th anniversary of the attack on America.  “9/11: Reflections Then and Now” is a moving tribute to those whose lives ended in the World Trade Center, those who made it out, and those they left behind.

On September 11, 2001, 2,980 people lost their lives at the hands of homicide terrorists…

Among the 2,752 victims who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center, 343 were Firefighters along with 60 Police Officers from New York City and the Port Authority.

184 people were killed in the attacks on the Pentagon along with the Passengers and Crew of Flight 77.

44 Passengers and Crew died on Flight 93 in a field at Shanksville, PA.

This is the story of the Survivors and First Responders, along with Family Members and Friends of those lost that day.  We will follow their lives over the next ten years to share their stories and how they coped with the tragedy, ultimately healing and many going on to do inspiring ventures. On the tenth Anniversary of 9/11, we ask just one question…

Where do we go from here?
