9/11 Online Community Support Group:
Reactions to the New Flight 93 Film Opening Soon


The new film, United 93, written and directed by Paul Greengrass, is scheduled to open in theaters on April 28th and is being shown on the first day of the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on April 25th.  With the opening just days away, many have already seen trailers, television and print ads for the film.  How do you respond when you see a trailer? How do you decide to go see the movie?  How do you prepare for and cope with your reactions to the film?  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 on Thursday, April 27th 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.
