It's been nearly 14 years since the deadly terrorist attacks of 9/11, and now, three young men who lost their father in the attacks on New York City are finally getting their victim's compensation money.

Tyshawn Ward, Trent Ward, and Dujon Holland — who were 14, nine, and 13 years old, respectively, at the time of the attacks in 2001 — lost their father John Holland that day when the 30-year-old was killed while working in the kitchen of the World Trade Center's restaurant, Windows of the World.

The boys, who grew up in poverty after not having a father to provide for them, should have received $1 million in compensation money, but it was lost through the cracks after officials failed to notify the young men it was available.

Now, all three are finally getting their due, though nothing will bring their father back. The lawyer for the boys, Salvatore Diliberto, located the money in 2013 after more than a decade of missteps by the government. He said:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Aims High In The Trailer For The Walk! Watch HERE!

The trailer for 'The Walk' makes us want to walk a high-wire!

Don't look down! Don't look down!

But also don't look away from this trailer because it's awesome!

Joseph Gordon-Levitt tries his hand at a French accent, starring as Philippe Petit in Sony's The Walk — a true story about the high-wire artist's famous walk between the Twin Towers at the World Trade Center.

The flick also stars Sir Ben Kingsley as Philippe's mentor, Papa Rudy, and features a trailer packed with passion, illegal schemes, and of course beautiful shots of TERRIFYING heights.

[ Video: Watch The New Mission Impossible Trailer! ]

Who would have thought a movie about one walk across a high-wire would be so intriguing — especially because we know what happens, since this all went down back in 1974??

The film is directed by Oscar-winner Robert Zemeckis, who you may know from a couple small projects like Forrest Gump and Back to the Future, so it's probably a safe bet to say The Walk is gonna soar to new heights!

Ch-ch-check out the full trailer (below)!

First buildings, then skyscrapers rise as you go up story after story, and then, for just a second, as the clock passes through September 11, 2001 — the World Trade Center goes away.

The moment is almost imperceptible at first as the years tumble by so quickly. But when you notice the sudden disappearance of the other tower, it's very affecting!

David W. Checketts, Chairman and CEO of Legends Hospitality — the company that created the observatory — believes marking the event was the only way to honor the original World Trade Center. He explained:

Bretange (pronounced like "Britney") is a real American hero dog!

She's a 15-year-old golden retriever, and she's believed to be the last living 9/11 search and rescue dog.
