This is such a sad story. I think it's become so popular because he did such heroic thing
I was amazed and fascinated how a guy an ordinary guy named Welles
saved twelve people. Also he had a choice- 1.He could just escape and live his life or to help people who were still alive and injured evacuate the building. After watching the movie I felt how hard it was for the parents to lose their child and how brave Welles was to chose the second option. After the tragic event people Welles knew began wearing red bandanas in honor of him sacrificing his life.
I think that this story has got so popular because the man saved other peoples lives and risked his own for people he didn't even know. I also think this is famous because the red bandana helped him through life to be who he was then.
After watching the Man In The Red Bandanna I felt heartbroken. I felt this because after the man got safely down to the ground he went back up in the building to help other people and didn't make it out. I think this has become so popular because he was a hero and people like to honor heroes for what they do. Also, it wasn't his job to save people it was just out of the goodness of his heart that he did it.
After watching the video i felt very sad and thankful that i get to live my life safely. I think this video has become so popular because it is inspirational and has a good message to it.
I am sad about the fact that the man in the red bandanna lost his life in such a tragic event. He would have survived if he didnt save other people. I honestly would have done the same thing.
After I watched the man in the red bandana, I looked at 9/11 in a totally different way. I felt sorry for the family of the man. I think this story became popular because it shows bravery and curoage in which most other people wouldn't have done.
after seeing the man With the Red Bandana I felt so morose but on the other hand and Im not sure why but I felt happy. the reason I felt happy is because I loved how he helped as many people as he could and turned into a firefighter. I think this is so popular because everyone remembered him by the red bandana and i thought that was amazing. Another thing that i really loved was how the bandana was past on to his friend.
This story makes me feel inspired and makes me fell who is a hero this story has become more popular because this boy kept going up the burning tower to safe people. A normal person would try to get out as fast as they could that is how I feel after watching this and how it became so popular
I felt sad, because one brave man decided to go and help people and he died doing that when he could have saved him self. I think that this is so popular because an regular man had the bravery to do this. these are my thoughts.
After watching the man in the red bandana I felt sad about the tragedy and so many people with injuries and so many people that died. I think that this story became so popular because 9/11 was just yesterday. Also that this man saved so many lives that he like a hero or those people wouldn't be here right now without him. And he was the only person to find the stair case to get out of the building. And did he not only get people out but he kept going back up to save more people.
After watching "The man in the red Bandana" I felt sad to know that wells(I think his name was) had died to save other peoples lives. Knowing that he was important enough to be talked about and get a video on ESPN in his memorial I knew that their was going to be something that was going to make him special. I think that this video was popular because of survivors saying that he lost his life to save others.
After watching "The Man in the Red Bandana," I felt sad because the man lost his life when he could have saved himself, but I also felt good about myself and inspired because I knew that a person just like me could do what he did, which was be a hero. I think it became so popular because it is an inspiring story, and in some ways, it makes you feel happy because all those people that may not have lived got out of the World Trade Center because of the man.
the link won't work.....
I thought it was very touching to see the bandana on everyone who was touched. I thought this was a popular story because this guy risked his life to save others. Plus he was strong, confident, and really active.
After watching the video, I felt very sad because the hero risked his life for twelve other people's lives. He made a difference because he decided twelve other people's lives were more important than his own. He died trying to help save these people. My friends and I cried a little because it was inspiring watching one man save twelve people. I think Mr. Bunel had us watch this to become a more considerate person.
I feel proud, sorry, & safe after watching "The man in the red bandana." First I feel sorry (for Welles and his family especially) because even though he did a wonderful deed, he lost his own life to save others. Also, it was a tragic day for all of us and it shouldn't of happened to those who did suffer. Secondly, I feel proud because on that day in history, not only was there terrorists, but there was heroes who rose to their potential. Also, I am proud because he also was not expecting those planes to fly in on the building he worked at. Lastly, I feel safer now because if there's people out there that are willing to lose their life to save others', then I predict that there will be more. I think the story of "The man in the red bandana" has become so popular because the fact that he died really sets the bar. I think that because instead of just saving other people leaving the rest to die, he saved as much as could of both and lost his own life instead. This event was like artwork because if you have a hole in a painting, you can't just take off all of the dry paint and start over. Also an artist's paintings become more valuable once the artist passes away. Same thing with the people who saved others.
I felt like I was about to start crying. I kind of felt out of place or uncomfortable at times. I was suddenly aware that 9 11 does have some things that will show people who you really are/were. It made me rethink what I want I want to do with my life. I am a believer that everything happens for a reason. So, there must be a reason of those turn of events.
I think this video is poplar because of 9/11. 9/11 happened in New York where a terrorists attacked twin towers which killed thousands of people. So when a plane hit the south tower a fireman who loved to wear a red bandanna came in here and saved the people who were trapped in the building. He saved 12 people and most of them are still alive today. But unfortunately he died trying to save them but he is still remembered today.
While watching "The man in the red bandana" I felt so sad that the
father wanted to die instead of his son. I also felt sad because
the man risked his life to save others. But that's what hero's do,
they put their life on the line to save others. I think this video is
popular because it showed how this man was a hero, and he started saving people when he was 16 years old, and he went to one room and saved a lot of people. Once those people went to a floor that was safe the man went back up the stairs to save more people. That's a true hero, I will never forget "The man in the red bandana."
after the video i felt vary emotional. the fact that the father and the son had the red bandana as a bond made it really sad. the video made me think what if i lost my famli? it also thought that im glad i wasnt alive for 9 11.
when I watched the man in the red bandana I was very sad. I can relate to this story because my dad had a friend who was a firefighter and died trying to help people get out. Also my uncle did business at the world Trade Center a lot but thankfully wasn't there that day. I think this story has become so popular because Welles went up in the tower and gave his life to save others. he is a hero
I felt sad that the guy did not make it out of the building. I think that he would of deserved to make it out alive. I think this became so popular because it was about 9-11 and that is such a big topic.
When I saw the video, I never felt so serious about 9/11. I felt like i sort of want to cry a little bit. At the end I sort of wanted to buy a red bandana.
i think the man in the red bandana is so so popular because it shows everyone he is a real hero.To be a hero you do not need superpowers, all you need is courage,confidence,and determination, the three hero words. And thats who everyone wants to be. Its very sad to see him die so young to save others,Thats what courage stands for. He does not want to leave others behind and wants to help them, thats what confidence stands for. He wants to get everyone out alive to safety and goes back to save them, thats what determination stands for. He deserves to get remembered on 9/11 he is very brave.
I think it is famous because it teaches everybody to help each other
The question of "why has this become so popular" is answered by the fact that he saved many people and tried to save even more before the collapsing of the southern tower and his death, as far as the red bandanna goes it was the people symbol of how he was recognized and thought of. I felt as if I had just watched a video of a more realistic(in the sense that it seemed more real then just stories about someones luck) story of someone who valued others above himself.
I thought it got so popular because its such a touching story and it showed how brave and caring he was. It got really sad at some points because he died while he was saving other peoples lives and he could have left but he kept going back to help helpless people. He was like a super hero because he saved 12 people from a deadly crash and those people were so grateful for him.
After seeing the video the man in the red bandanna I felt empathy for his family. I was thinking during the video that it must have been hard finding out that their son had died. No one knew that the twin towers would fall so everyone who lost someone must have felt so surprised and depressed. I thought I might cry when I saw all his team was doing for him. I know that everyone is affected by the twin tower incident even if they didn't lose someone it was a sad incident and I hope nothing like that happens again.
I felt sad and happy at the same time. I felt this because he died in the attacks but happy because he helped saved a number of people's lives. At the end of the video it felt like he died helping others.
This story brought tears to my eyes. It's amazing to think that some people can be so courageous, they risked their own lives to save other people. 9/11 was a sad tragedy but our heros, like Welles R. Crowther saved many lives, with their own at risk. Welles R. Crowther is such an inspiration, it made me happy that people still remember him by wearing a red bandana, the Red Bandana Marathon, and hanging his picture and his memorial in the firehouse, so that when the firemen and women leave it is the last thing they see. This video was a very sad and touching story. It has become so popular because people are grateful for him because he risked his life to save 12 people in the 9/11 tragedy. It was heart touching that he had saved lives, I just wish he had made it out alive himself. I am sure that even today all the people he saved and their family and friends are grateful for him. If he had just saved himself, a lot of people wouldn't be alive today. I bet that every single day the people he saved wake up and are thankful he saved their lives, because if it wasn't for him they wouldn't be here today. Now, whenever I wear a red bandana I will think of Welles R. Crowther, the hero.
i think that the man in the red bandanna video is so popular because he risked his life to save the survivors when the plane crashed and did everything he could do to save everyone that had survived.
Eoin is writing his answer here, but will you notify us when the moderator has approved him for an account so he can blog the regular way?
I felt surprised that I had not watched this story before or even heard someone say anything about. I also felt bad for Welles's parents. They knew their son was a hero, but he was no longer living. They are proud of him, but sad that the tower fell before he got out. I think this video go popular so fast because it is an amazing story and people respect him.
About the man in a red bandana I think was just probably an inspiration to many or even all of the people he saved or the people he couldn't save an could still hear. It takes so much courage to be able to summon up an entire body full of courage, I bet that it was amazing to see someone who could do that. That made him so popular, they even had a half-marathon for him with everybody wearing a (RED BANDANA).
I felt sad because the man in the red bandana died risking his life to save others. At the same time I felt so proud of the young man that stood up like a hero and lead people to safety in a very dangerous situation. This story is so popular because Welles Crowther rescued at least 12 people that day. He was not a superhero like Superman or Batman with special powers or gadgets. He only had a very big heart full of courage. His first and natural instinct was to save others as he was trained to do as a volunteer firefighter. The man was a natural leader because he was so calm even in the face of danger. During the fire he said, “Only help the ones you can ”. He helped rescue those people in the south tower and went back up again to save more and died doing so. His story has inspired many others to wear a red bandana, as a sign of courage and honor. It inspires me to help others whenever possible.
I feel this story became popular because Welles is truly a hero to many people and just became one of mine. That day was horrible, innocent people lost their lives because of this unfortunate event however he made 12 less lives disappear. As you saw/heard some people won't even mention the fact that it happened because its to painful to talk about.
I felt like a million pounds just dropped on my chest. I didn't know what to saw but WOW! Welles will always be remembered as a hero!
I think that the man in the red bandanna was a great person. He was the leader in sports team and a very goodhearted man, but what he did on 9/11 made him really famous person after he died. What he did was save 12 peoples lives but scarified his own. His words at the time of the accident was very brave and stood out, he said ''I have found a stair way come on down and help the people who are still alive.
The story, "The Man in the Red Bandana" is a very popular story.
This story was about a man who always wore his red bandana
as a connection to his father. During 9/11 he saved many lives,
but gave up his life to rescue the survivors and bring them down to the safest floor. When he died nobody knew who saved their life.
All they knew was what he said, how he looked like, and what he did
for their lives. Once his parents knew the discription, they knew that
it was their son who saved lives in the south tower and gave his life.
All places who actually knew him, wore a red bandana to remember
him. This story was very sad because he gave his life to save lives
The story of "The Man in the Red Bandana" has become popular. It is about someone who died while helping people in the south tower on 9/11. The story became popular because he helped other people on 9/11 escape the floor. While going down to safety with a group of people who survived, he went back up the stairs and helped more people escape
after watching the video I feel like that man with the red bandana should be a big part of our history. I think the story has become so popular because the man has inspired so many people across America and even maybe other countries.
I think it has become so popular because it is inspiring. It inspirers me to put others first and help the community.
i feel sad about 9/11 and it reminded me of how many heros there were and how people died saving others.
