Arkansas 9-11 Widow Recommends Movies on Flight 93

DECEMBER 6, 2005 - Posted at 8:13 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - An Arkansas 9-11 widow says films about the terrorist attacks have been done tastefully and will remind Americans why the country is at war.

Deena Burnett of Little Rock, was left to raise three young children when terrorists crashed Flight 93 in rural Pennsylvania.  Her husband Tom Burnett and other passengers tried to take control of the plane from their terrorist hijackers.  Deena has been interviewed for 14 movies on Flight 93, including two that have already aired.

Burnett says a comfortable margin of time has passed since the attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania so that the films can be made without seeming crass.
