"[This book] embodies the Buddhist wisdom about change, life, and the
world more than anything written after the events of that day."

CNN will air The Flag, a prime-time documentary on September 4, 8, and 11--based on the last chapter of Watching the World Change. The movie, directed by Michael Tucker and Petra Epperlein, tells the back-story of the famous photograph, by Thomas Franklin, showing three firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero on 9/11. This is the second in a series of documentaries being released by CNN FILMS, the first being the critically acclaimed Our Nixon, which was broadcast this month. (Check your local listings for times near you.)

Also: For those who don't yet have the book, this week Picador releases an e-book "short" of the last chapter, "The Flag"--for 99 cents.
