We all remember where we were 10 years ago during the attacks of 9/11. Whether you were watching it unfold on television, or listening to it on the radio, you can probably still conjure up the sick feeling you had when it was explained what exactly it was that was happening to our Country. It’s one of those monumental events that changed things for us, forever.
There have been countless documentaries to account for the events of that day but only one from the viewpoint of the children involved and affected by that day.
The Second Day is a touching and inspirational documentary film about the students and educators at Ground Zero area schools who experienced first-hand the tragic events of September 11, 2001 in New York City. Directed by 14-year-old filmmaker Brook Peters, then a member the kindergarten class at P.S. 150 Tribeca Learning Center, the documentary continues to shed emotional light on the manic moments of that fateful September morning via Brook’s interviews with fellow classmates, students, teachers, faculty, firefighters, and counselors.
Brook Peters and his classmates witnessed something that as a parent you will do anything to shelter your kids from. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all of those who were involved. From the first responders to the witnesses and all of those who lost someone they loved or lost their lives on that day.
