Did you know?

Did you know?

1. Is September 11th Anzac Day, Labor Day or Patriot Day?
2. Do americans commemorate the 2001 terrorist attack, the fallen soldiers in World War Two or the building of the World Trade Center?
3. Why there is a minute of silence at 8.46 am? Because everyone is at work, because the attack took place at that time or is it because the World Trade Center opens at that time?




9/11: The 73 minutes that changed my life

5 September 2011
I remember it was a beautiful day”. He was working at [a] law firm, and his office was on the 23rd floor of a building [near] the World Trade Center. At 08:46, a loud boom shook the building.
[Then] someone screamed for everyone to get out of the building, because a plane had hit one of the Twin Towers. Van Why took the lift and exited through a revolving door.
“I walked to Church Street. […] I saw the North Tower […] I was dumbstruck.”
Later, [he] saw the second plane hit the South Tower as he ran towards Fulton Street. […] None of the phones were working, so he went into a café and used a telephone there. When he emerged, he heard a deafening sound. He saw a wall of grey smoke. The South Tower was collapsing.
He started running. The time was 09:59, 73 minutes after the first plane flew into the North Tower.
By the time he got to his apartment on 43rd Street. The North Tower had also collapsed. [The events have] haunted him for nearly a decade.
