9/11. It's hard not to choke up thinking about that day. And, I was nowhere near New York, D.C., or Pittsburgh.

When the first plane hit the World Trade Center, I was getting ready for work and I got a call from my husband. We were barely dating than, but had been close friends for years. He called to tell me to turn on the TV. It was just in time to see the second plane hit.

Driving to work, I stopped to get coffee for my crew. I remember seeing a plane flying over head as I was leaving the shop with a tray full of coffee. The plane looked so odd and out of place in the sky. Almost as if it should not have been there. Shortly after I got to work, passengers took down their hijacked plane outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Later we would all learn that nineteen men hijacked four fuel-loaded US commercial airplanes bound for the West Coast. 2,977 people died in New York City, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania because of the attacks.

What I remember most of that day was the hope that we all had for a better tomorrow and all the tomorrows that would come.

Fifteen years later and our kids are learning about it in history class. Wrapping my head around what happened was difficult watching it live. Coming up with the right answers to help them understand seems impossible. Tuesday's Children has those answers.

Tuesday's Children provides a lifetime of healing for those whose lives have been forever changed by terrorism and traumatic loss.

Although it's been fifteen years, it's hard to imagine a movie that can truly capture the day in a way we haven't seen before. This one just may be the one movie to watch.

About 9/11

9/11 opens in theaters on September 8
 and features an all star cast including Luis Guzman (The Taking of Pelham 1,2,3), Gina Gershon (Showgirls), Wood Harris (Justified), Jacqueline Bisset (Dancing on the Edge (BBC), Welcome to New York), Olga Fonda (The Vampire Diaries) and Bruce Davison (X-Men).

In the World Trade Center, a billionaire sits in his attorney’s office awaiting a divorce hearing against his wife. In a west side apartment, a bike messenger kisses his 5-year old daughter and sings her “Happy Birthday” before leaving for work. A maintenance man gets dispatched to help a tenant with his lock. In an upper east side apartment, a young model musters the courage to break up with her sugar daddy. As random as random can be, these individuals step into a crowded World Trade Center elevator.

Wrapped up in their own world, they all ride silently hearing only the sound of the elevator giving notice of each floor. When the elevator stops on the 34th floor, it empties leaving only these five behind. Moments later ... their world changes as the collision of a jet into the North Tower incapacitates the elevator.

With no understanding of what has happened and is happening around them, these five are forced to band together and fight against all odds to escape from the impending horrific collapse. During these critical minutes, a story of courage, faith, and the will to live unfolds.
