Never Forget

One of the more sobering research efforts to write A FALL OF MARIGOLDS was re-entering the world of September 11, 2001. Like anyone reading this post, I remember that day with heart-breaking clarity. Of all the videos I watched to re-familiarize myself with the terrible details, this one produced by the Discovery Channel was the most impacting. It’s an hour-and-a-half long, but expertly produced. It’s also emotionally devastating, but if we’re going to remember what happened that day, then this documentary is, I think, one of the better ways to keep those who died close in our hearts . . .
