Museum puts 9/11 experience online


The New York museum dedicated to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on Wednesday launched an interactive, blow-by-blow album of the traumatic day. Hopefully the timeline can continue to show how some families have moved forward with strength, honoring in their loved ones with different projects, as presented in our film: "From The Ground Up - 10 Years After 9/11" Help us get his film finished with a donation, and please ask your friends and family to help.
