REMEMBERING THE WORST TERROR ACTS

     


REMEMBERING THE WORST TERROR ACTS

 Three of the most unforgettable sights: Exploding towers and plane about to hit the second tower.

By BERTENI TOTO CATALUÑA CAUSING

The writer witnessed on the television the fall of the Biggest Economic Empire when it happened on September 11, 2001, now known as 9/11 terror tragedy.  That time, the author was editing news stories at the news desk of People’s Journal Tonight, then the biggest-circulated English tabloid in the Philippines with more than 400,000 copies sold a day.

He cannot find sufficient words to describe the September 11, 2001 tragedy that brought to zero the World Trade Center that was the mightiest and the proudest in the world, financially and otherwise.

The most awful sights on tv that time was the crumbling down of the two towers into ashes and the people waving for help from the windows, and falling human bodies that went to nowhere. Almost all these people are missing till ten years ago today.

There is no other way to resolve any tragedy, no matter how traumatic.  It is only by means of confronting the same, over and over again.  Fear can only be conquered by facing fear.

As his contribution to the world, the author presents these two most dramatic videos of the collapse.

Here are these video footages:


1.       COLLAPSE OF TWO TOWERS OF WTC



2.       BODIES FALLING DOWN AND PEOPLE WAIVING FROM THE WINDOWS OF WTC TOWER


                The remembering cannot be complete without watching more.  So that the author compiled some more selections and these are as follows:

3.       LIVE SHOTS OF CBS NEWS (FEATURING THE 2ND PLANE HITTING THE 2ND TOWER)


4.       AMATURE VIDEO SHOWING THE 1ST PLANE SMASHING THE 1ST TOWER


5.       FULL DOCUMENTARY OF WORLD TRADE CENTER TRAGEDY


                My friends, this is not an issue of religion, neither of race or nationality.  This is without doubt a powerful argument that we must all learn to avoid repeating history through understanding of each other’s dreams, aspirations, traditions, pride, honor and everything else.

                We can always learn to restrain ourselves if we cannot accept loving another person.  Violence is always violence, no matter the reason behind.

                Osama Bin Laden or his Al-Qaida fanatics, or even peoples in other parts of the world who feel they are oppressed or taken advantage of by the government of the USA, cannot use these perceived oppression or perceived Zionism-leaning actions as justifications to “punish America” when those actually punished when the punishing acts were done were people who had absolutely nothing to do with the governance decisions of the US.

                Let us remember the biggest massacre of modern times.
