Poll: Grief and Loss (15 Years since September 11 attacks)

“No truth can cure the sorrow we feel from losing a loved one. No truth, no sincerity, no strength, no kindness can cure that sorrow. All we can do is see it through to the end and learn something from it, but what we learn will be no help in facing the next sorrow that comes to us without warning.” - (Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood).

Terrorism is Inhuman and abominable act, there's no other moral way to define the harming of innocent people.

2,996 people were murdered in the September 11 attacks. Much has been said about that terrible day, from different angles, this day I want all of us to remember not only the people who died but also the ones that were left behind - fathers, mothers, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, spouses, friends and neighbors.

Many movies deal with the subject of grief and loss in different ways and in many cases they do so in a sensitive and reliable way.

All the characters listed are coping with grief and loss. I didn't pick only characters who lost their loved ones in 9/11 because my basic assumption is that "grief is grief," everywhere and in most situations.

So which movie character do you feel most sorry for?
