9/11 Bride

Apparently, a filmmaker named Ned Danny made a film about couples whose weddings were interrupted by the events of 9/11 in 2001.

There is a whole self-righteous website dedicated to Stopping Ned Danny.

Stopping him from doing what?
Doing a film on couples whose weddings will be forever burned in their memories as the day that a disaster happened?

It happened.
Should their weddings have been postponed?

Now listen, I'm the last one to sit around backing Bridezillas...but those people who plan weddings for a year or more..(not me...mine didn't include what others go through for their "special day") should they have stopped their weddings because of the terrorist attacks?

Is it different for us, than it is for others whose lives go on in war torn countries?
Babies don't stay in the womb because a bomb falls.
People don't stop getting married in war torn countries where bombs are falling all the time.

Are we so featherbedded that we feel that life must stop because a disaster happens on this side of the pond?

Sure, who wants the date September 11, 2001 as their wedding anniversary?
But if it was planned a year in advance, who are you to say that it shouldn't go on?

Ned Danny documented, in film the feelings of some people whose weddings were on that day.
So what?
I'm interested to know how they dealt with it.

How is this documentary a "horrible, disrespectful, and unpatriotic film that desecrates the victims and families of the terrorist acts of 9/11 by belittling their deaths and promoting radical conspiracy theories."

As the website claims...

Because people were asked about how it went?

Oh, get over yerselves.
Fuckin' navelgazers.
And I'm not talking about the couples.
