TV SPECIALS ON 9-11 ANNIVERSARY; WILL YOU BE WATCHING?

NEW CBS SPECIAL: 9-11, 10 YEARS LATER
The 10th anniversary of 9-11 is close at hand. A new CBS special “9-11, 10 Years Later” will be aired on September 11, 2011 at 8pm and will document the changes that have taken place at Ground Zero since that awful day in 2001. It will also highlight the lives of some of the first responders at the scene of the tragedy. Robert DiNiro, who narrated the original CBS special, will also host this follow up program. DiNiro is from the Downtown New York area himself.
It will be interesting to see how many Americans tune in to see the unveiling of Ground Zero by President Obama. Over the past 10 years it seems the patriotism, support for first responders and participation in memorials has waned somewhat in the US. In addition, it seems that September 11, 2011 will be the date of the first full slate of games for the NFL season!
New DISCOVERY CHANNEL Special – Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero

The Discovery Channel will be airing a special series produced by Steven Spielberg on Sunday, August 28 which will air commercial free on the rebuilding of the World Trade Center Complex.

From executive producer Steven Spielberg, DreamWorks Television, Discovery Channel and Science Channel comes the story of hope from darkness, life from ashes, a dream born from a nightmare.  RISING: REBUILDING GROUND ZERO, premiering Friday, August 25 at 8PM E/P on Discovery Channel, showcases the men and women determined to rebuild and restore a sacred site, constructing the new, 104-story One World Trade Center.

“Discovery Channel is proud to be sharing this important story and transitional moment in the history of our country.  With incredible access and deft storytelling, RISING: REBUILDING GROUND ZERO captures a city and a country moving forward but never forgetting.  September 11th is something we all share and RISING: REBUILDING GROUND ZERO will be a touchstone for audiences to remember, reflect and look forward,” said Debbie Myers, General Manager of Science Channel.

The six-hour special premieres Thursday, August 25 and concludes Thursday, September 1 from 8-11PM ET/PT each night.

 I hope on September 11, 2011, every American will have their flag flying, their hearts filled with pride and remembrance, and their souls strengthened and determined never to forget those who lost their lives in the attack and those who gave their lives so others might survive. The staff of DRL sends our love and prayers out to the survivors and the friends and family members of the victims of this tragedy. Many of us lost loved ones and friends as well. Remember: VOTE WISELY, GET INVOLVED, EDUCATE YOURSELF ON WORLD AND LOCAL ISSUES, PRAY FOR OUR COUNTRY AND ITS LEADERS!
