No one would have believed on the morning of September 11th 2001 that the world as we knew it was about to change forever. Routines of the sprawling metropolis must have been the same as they always were on a working day: Hot coffee being poured into paper mugs, gas fueling up the tanks of yellow cabs. Traffic congesting in the rush of the early hours, desktops booting up to start a day of labor where the previous left off. Another day in the life of lower Manhattan, it would seem, until American Airlines Flight 11 hit the North Tower of the World Trade Center and disaster struck. Unexpected yet in some sense inevitable, this is the paradoxical nature of Terrifying & Shocking Disasters.
