World Trade Center Tragedy

September 11th, 2001: Twin Towers Tragedy- WTC Catastrophe
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United

Maniacal terrorists strike at the big apple of America’s eye.
Famed majestic landmarks, the Twin Towers crumble,
imploding into billions of bits of molten steel, jagged glass,
and seared human flesh and flailing broken bones. Escaping
spiked and surging fire balls, staff vaulted through windows.
A canine toothed wing of the Pentagon is broken, in the
aftermath of the devastation: a massive death toll of innocents
remains lodged, buried alive, fifty feet under, sifting the cold
hard rubble, a glint of hope, as five survivors are dug up and rescued.
First aid crews take to the streets and man the flaming towers.
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.


Wiped out, the first company of New York City’s finest fire
fighters, police, and first aid crews crash and burn inside of the
cascading avalanche of steel daggers. The 110-story twin towers
are brought to its saber knees and then to its foiled ankles.
WTC mass exodus: Grieving, a 47-story, sister building 7,
collapses in distress into ragged ruins. Billowing, nearby
brother buildings in zone remain ablaze. Plumes of smoke
hover, flying concrete and soot, raining dust and debris,
entomb thousands of frightful, fleeing bystanders.
Makeshift morgues ferry dead family carcasses to New Jersey.
High flying stars and stripes fly low at half staff. Scalpeled
surgeons, bed-pan nurses, and swarming volunteers man
the hospitals. New Yorkers, from every walk of life, take
to the streets and wait for hours to donate their blood:
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.

Slamming, ramming into Grade A U.S. Steel,
four American airplanes are commandeered:
flight crews are maced; by box cutters, pilots
are knifed, passengers use their cell phones:
“I Love You” are their final words. Diabolical,
suicide bombers, American men, women, and
children transfigured into four human missiles:
Flight 11, Boeing 767, ninety-two Americans,
eleven crew members, crash and burn
into the north tower, N.Y.C.
Flight 175, sixty-five Americans,
nine flight attendants, crash and burn
into the south tower, N.Y.C.
Flight 77, Boeing 757, 58 Americans,
six flight attendants, crash and burn
into the Pentagon, D.C.
Flight 93, Boeing 757, 38 Americans
five flight attendants, crash and burn,
into an empty field, Pa., by unsung heroes.
Federal aviation officials ground all flights.
Jetliners land at the nearest airport.
Zippered up, bridges, tunnels, and highways lock gates.
Fiercely, five warships, frigate ships and aiming bull’s-eye,
guided missile destroyers man the New York coast.
Two aircraft carriers: USS George Washington and
USS John F. Kennedy, man the New York skies.
In steely determination, it is business, but not business as usual.
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.


It is more than a terrorist attack -
It is an act of war! It is a national tragedy!
The free and democratic world is attacked:
White House evacuates.
United Nations evacuates.
Treasury evacuates.
State Department evacuates.
Justice department evacuate.
World Bank evacuates.
All federal office buildings evacuate.
New York's primary elections are postponed.
Israel evacuates all diplomatic missions.
All N.Y. state government offices evacuate.
Trading is suspended: The American Stock
Exchange, Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange.
Chicago's Sears Tower evacuates.
Slumbering, F.B.I., C.I.A. and I.N.S. agents rouse.
It is the first war of the 21st century! No-man’s land,
hermetically sealed, the President is whisked away.
Lady Liberty stands tall in the New York Harbor.
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.


President Bush addresses the nation:
“These acts shattered steel but they
cannot dent the steel of American resolve."
"We will make no distinction between the terrorists
who committed these acts and those who harbored them."
"This battle will take time and resolve,
but make no mistake about it, we will win.”
“Whether we bring our enemies to justice, or
bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done.”
Suspect numero uno is Saudi militant Osama bin Laden.
Operation Infinite Justice: Seek and destroy al Qaeda.
Mayor Giuliani addresses New York:
“Deaths are more than any of us can bear."
Senator Hillary Clinton addresses New Yorkers:
“We will not be cowed by evil, despicable acts of terror."
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.


(6) Heaven sent, where 70 virgins await each Islamic
martyr on a homicidal-suicidal mission, 19 corrosive
terrorists decompose into smithereens: no bad guys,
no car chase; no revenge to seek; no justice to exact;
no war to win and no Hollywood movie. Deadbolts on
cockpits, armed pilots, and stewardesses, no curbside
check-in and Arab profiling strip searches. An inferno,
charred bodies incinerated into ashes, no funerals,
memorial tributes arise. Cremated. Sobbing. Closure.
International terrorism: a worldwide menace. Terrorists:
a worldwide monstrosity. Arising reborn, names of loved
ones are inscribed on the walls of the observation deck,
the hatched angels hover, protecting the Twin Towers rebuilt
anew. WorldWISE: democracy, liberty, freedom, prosperity,
goodness, love, security and peace: “We Shall Overcome.”
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.


(7) A cataclysmic collision course between good and evil;
angels aflight and devils afoot. Aftershocks: disbelief, terror,
numbness, grief, depression, fear, nightmares and rage.
Twin Towers total: 90,000 foreign visitors a day; a person
from each and every corner of the globe may have
perished, 50,000 employed; mournfully, 6000 consumed.
Outstretched, GOD’s hand of mercy, love, and compassion
vanquished the evil incarnate, “GOD WILLING.”
Spiraling Downward, Upward We Stand United.
