9/11 Online Community Support Group:
Another Movie? Considering thoughts and feelings about Oliver Stone's World Trade Center Movie
Although Oliver Stone's movie will not be released until August 9th, the trailer is beginning to be shown in theaters. How can you prepare for or cope with different responses you have when you see a trailer or read about this movie? What are your expectations in regard to the movie and how the events of September 11th are depicted? We would like to offer you an opportunity to explore these thoughts and feelings during our next online chat.
Please join your peers in the 9/11 community for an online chat this Monday, June 12th from 8-9PM EST. This online chat session will provide 9/11 victims' families, survivors, first responders, and others affected by the attacks at the Pentagon, the World Trade Center, and Shanksville the opportunity to discuss issues and topics of importance in a safe, supportive environment. As a reminder, all participants must be FOS11 members (please see below on how to register as a member - membership is free). Dr. Donna Gaffney, a licensed mental health professional and noted trauma specialist, will facilitate the chat.
After you login, you will be able to choose an anonymous chat name (which will identify you in the chat room) and a password. Then, you will receive an email with a link to the chat.
