I was 16, on my second day of my college induction, on September 11th 2001, and came home to see the towers on fire on TV, before collapsing a short while later. I wasn't aware of anything going on until I got home. As time has gone by, I've never managed to shake the images off, and with more than a decade of death that has followed, the sense that these images have some kind of dreadful cosmic weight to them is increasingly present. Looking at the various footage available, I found myself dwelling less on the moment of impact but rather the seconds beforehand. The time just before an event is often the most critical, as once the collision occurs, it is all over already.
