This coming September 11th, 2011 will mark the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the New York World Trade Center. Two hijacked planes were crashed into two of the most influential financial buildings during the highest point of the business day, maximizing the potential damage and loss of life. The casualties were unimaginable and the damages too horrific to recall without becoming emotional.
The nation was stunned by these events and additional attacks on that day. It is practically unthinkable that this was a planned and thoughtfully carried out by a diabolical man that, until recently, eluded authorities and continued that mission until his death. It was in the days following September 11, 2001 that we saw the true strength and fortitude of our nation’s most celebrated city and its inhabitants.
Engineering Ground Zero is the newest of the ground-breaking documentaries produced by NOVA and PBS. The film documents what has been a monumental task: the rebuilding of the World Trade Center, the building of the WTC Memorial, and the healing of the physical wound left in the aftermath of 9/11.
