September 11, 2011 will be the tenth anniversary of the Al-Qaeda terror attacks made upon America
I for one will never forget that terrible day and the absoluteÂ horror and helplessness that I felt watching the Twin Towers in New York collapse, the plane that crashed in to the Pentagon and the hijacked plane heading for the White House but crashed by Pennsylvannia because heroic passengers tried to take control of the plane knocking it off its intended course.
Of the four hijacked planes there were no survivors and thousands more innocent lives went on to perish in the flames and utter carnage of the Al-Qaeda mass murder terrorist attacks.
But that unforgettable day had a much greater impact upon the lives of so many children who lost their parents in the tragedy of 9/11 and some of the brave 2,700 youngsters who lost at least one of their parents are revealed tonight in the moving new Channel 5 documentary, ‘Children of 9/11′.
Many of them are grown up now, but the pain of losing their loved ones remains powerfully clear to us all as they tell in their own words how they heard the news and how their lives have progressed in the last decade.
Featured in the heart wrenching documentary is Darcie Scauso, 23, whose father Dennis was a new York Firefighter and died when the second Twin Tower collapsed.
Darcie Scauso is now happily married but talks frankly about what her life is like without her father and how she is coping with her deep sense of losing him especially now that she has a child of her own on the way.
