I think it's important to see that kind of thing. I know it helped me to understand what the firemen went through better. And, when you consider it, Fr Judge's body being carried to the church was a mild shot compared to some of the sights the people there saw. I distinctly remember one of the firemen on the film saying that he was standing on the roof of a building and it was "raining bodies". The camera-man said that he was standing next to two people who were on fire, but refused to film it. We didn't see any of the bodies pulled from the towers. They had at least that much respect.

And besides. It's kind of like 'lest we forget' and all that. By filming what happened, they made sure that we'll never forget what happened, that we'll never forget that human beings can be capable of such acts against each other.

But that's just what I reckon.
