    One year ago today at about 5am, we were making our way from Newark to Manhattan to film the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, an event that plays a key role in Hellbound?. The mood was tense and security was uber-tight due to the threat of a truck bomb or some other sort of attack that would supposedly take place during the memorial ceremonies. The day before, we had actually spent some time debating whether it would be safer to travel into Manhattan above ground or below ground. We finally opted for traveling above, not because we thought it was safer but merely b/c none of us relished the idea of dying in a fiery inferno underground. Thankfully, the attack never materialized, and we got to film one of the most emotionally charged events of which I’ve ever been a part.

    One year later, I’m up at 5am once again. This time I’m en route to the airport so I can fly to the premiere of Hellbound? in Nashville. I have a similar feeling of trepidation, with no idea what we are going to encounter down there. But I’m also taking time to reflect on how many people got up at around this same time 11 years ago to board what to all appearances was a routine flight–and then never came home again. I never feel good about getting onto an airplane, least of all on a day like today. But I’m using it as a reminder that nothing in life should ever be reduced to mere routine, that we should cherish and and be thankful for it all.

  1. Kevin, blessing to you in your premiere at Nashville. I really wish I could be there. Hopefully some of my Nashville music friends will make it. Let us know who in the music scene shows up in support 🙂
