Wednesday marks the twelfth Anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Flight 93. Millions will be honoring those fallen and commemorating the anniversary in their own ways on September 11, 2013. TV networks though will also be bringing forth their tributes in their own ways.
Throughout the day, there will be a number of channels that will showcase actual footage from the day it all happened 12 years ago. Some people don't think this is a wise idea, but it is the choice of all as to whether they watch or not.
Every year, it is great to remember the day for those that lost their lives and those that stepped up to help and rescue. Some of the television shows that will air on different channels represent this mindset, but some go in completely different directions.
There are conspiracy theories, blame games, and those even saying that it was expected or predicted. Either way, it is a date that everyone will always remember and one that will never go away.
Recollections, old newscasts, specials, documentaries, movies, concerts, special editions, and so much more will line the TV airwaves as 9/11 draws near. Below is a schedule for September 11, 2013 and when you can catch all the coverage you want.
