the revulsion is still there

remembering the towers

I knew what was going to happen when I started the player. I had seen it hundreds of times from many angles.

Yet today when I clicked on the player, as I watched the event unfold again, my eyes squinted, my hands trembled and my posture was taut.

Knowing that the plane was going to crash into the second tower on September 11th didn’t ease my shock nor did it still the memories of everything that played out in the hours, days, weeks, months and years ahead.

The Internet Archive has collected video from all the major American and UK networks as the events of September 11th unfolded live on TV.

From a journalistic or media perspective it is an invaluable resource which again proves how the internet can be a wonderful educational tool.

You should watch it for that reason or because you are an American or because you are a human being.

So much time has passed and I am still so angry.
