Remembering 9/11: Movies & Songs
Thirteen years ago today, a historic event took place that shattered America. Lives were lost and people’s hearts were broken. Today marks a day where the victims of September 11th will be remembered and honoured through various tributes and ceremonies.
While the US flags fly high and candles are lit, we want to present to you a list of movies and songs that were made following the events of 9/11. We’ve dished out three movies and two songs that were inspired by the day that rocked not only America, but the world.
World Trade Center (2006)
World Trade Center focuses on the journey of the rescue fighters who made America proud and proved themselves true heroes during that fateful time. The blockbuster starring Nicholas Cage is a tearjerker that will move you and stir your emotions.
Remember Me (2010)
Remember Me is a romantic drama movie featuring Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin. Without bringing up any spoilers, this movie depicts the lives of those who were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Yet another emotional roller-coaster of a movie that tells a tragic love story.
United 93 represented the plane hijacking that happened on that dreaded day in 2001. The heart-racing blockbuster is tense, frightening and almost unwatchable.
Black Eyed Peas – ‘Where Is The Love’ (2003)
The Black Eyed Peas released their single Where Is The Love in 2003 and sent shivers down everyone’s spines for its meaningful lyrics. Upon releasing the song that features lyrics about terrorism, will.i.am said, “The world needs this song right now,”.
Beyoncé – ‘I Was Here’ (2012)
Beyonce’s I Was Here was a tribute song to the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012. The video clip featured tributes, memorials and landmarks of the September 11th terror attacks.
Thirteen years on, we remember the heroes & those who have fallen…RIP.
