"A Day to Remember" 9/11 skit

Several years ago I wrote and posted a script on my skit site which uses the World Trade Center as a backdrop to a drama. On this anniversary of the event, I thought you might enjoy reading it.

Here is the link to the script: "A Day To Remember."

Below is a video of a nicely-acted live performance of the script by a church that I found on Youtube!

In case the embedded video does not work for you, here is a direct link to the video on the Youtube page.


  1. Dear Fred,
    We have had such a positive response to our performances of your script, "A Day To Remember." Sometimes it's difficult to read an audience at the end; especially with such a suprising one. But after the meeting breaks up, we get so many people telling us how powerful it was. I want to thank you again for you work in Christian drama and your willingness to make you material available at no cost. It's a real testimony of your servanthood. I'm sure we will be using more of you work in the future. Our drama team is growing and the leadership here is starting to realize how useful drama can be for the furtherance of the Gospel. Keep up the good work!

    Yours in Him,
    David Dollar

  2. Hi Fred -
    We performed the skit "A Day To Remember" last Saturday at our Mother-Daughter banquet and it was a great success. It was wonderful!

    When I first found the script for "A Day To Remember," I was so moved and could not shake it! I was searching for a script with some meat for our Mother Daughter banquet - the theme was baskets of blessings. Our focus was for the audience to recognize God's blessings - not just the obvious but that God blesses us even when we fail to recognize it. This skit was perfect. Since we used the skit for a Mother Daughter Banquet, we changed the characters to be two women.

    Usually a light and fluffy night, this banquet was moving, in large part due to your skit. I have heard nothing but positive comments. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. Dear Fred,

    Memorial Church of the Nazarene in Orangeburg, SC did your skit, “A Day to Remember” on September 12, 2010.

    At my church I usually do the funny skits, so when I and my skit partner came out the congregation was prepared for something hilarious. When we got finished with the skit, you could hear a pin drop. Everyone was shocked, not that we just did a serious skit, but that it was a skit about 9/11 and that Jeff could possibly die with out knowing Jesus. We got a lot of complements on how well we performed the skit, but we had a lot more to talk about the skit itself. I had a lot people to tell me that the skit made them think about their own spiritual lives and reflect on 9/11. Again, another one of your skits performed by me and again the outcome of this skit and the others is just awesome. I love your skits and I plan on performing more in the future. God bless you and your ministry.
