A hero, A legacy

After reading The Red Bandanna by Tom Rinaldi, I felt a strong urge to know more about Welles's story. The very next day I bought tickets to view Man in Red Bandana. I was 20 years old when 9/11 happened and I have not seen footage of the actual day since the first day when I watched the 2nd tower fall on TV. Re-watching the footage in the documentary brought me back to that time when my innocence of youth was forever changed.

The documentary includes other survivors accounts of that day in the South Tower and how a man named Welles Crowther risked his own life to save others. He was only 24 years old with a life ahead of him and it pains me that he, along with the others who lost their lives that day, will never get another day. I am grateful that his documentary was made. It will never bring Welles' or the others back, but it gave the Crowther's a special gift- their son will be a legacy for years to come. I know that does not make it any easier, but I hope they found peace in knowing they raised a magnificent, selfless man.

Best Ending Of Any Documentary

The story of Welles Crowther is simply amazing. Welles saved, at least, 10 people in the upper reaches of the South Tower on 9/11. However, no one knew what happened to him until 8 months later. Welles' mom was reading the NY Times and read about a man wearing a red bandanna who saved people. She knew instantly that this was her son. The film shows all the heroic actions that Welles displayed that day and then shows how he has assumed a folklore status throughout the country. The final ending just blew me away!

True American Hero

This is such an inspiring documentary and a must watch for all Americans. My husband was a marine and was deployed often after 9/11. I wanted to find a story for my sons that focused on the heroism, rather than the terrorism. This documentary helps all of us to remember the pure good in our fellow man and how we should strive to live up to the character of Welles every day.
