Tragedy all around. I knew it was coming, but the lead up in the 2-3 min mark is just as terrifying and unexpected as ever. Hard to hold back the tears for me. Like many of you, I watched this live from a classroom.
The world changed in an instant. No one came out unscathed - even the people like us who were no where near where it happened.
There IS a post 9-11 world Whether or not it changed anything objectively isn't the point. There is a post-9/11 world because everyone that remembers the attack and how the world handled it afterwards will always be looking for the boogeyman now that they've heard the thump.
