When Our World Came Apart – on 911| The Post & Email:


by Ron Ewart, �2011

(Sep. 11, 2011) — There is no way to truly understand the horror of the early morning hours of September 11, 2001. But nothing captures a piece of that horror more than a four-minute, 34-second telephone call to the 911 operator from a man that was trapped above the airplane impact on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center, Tower No. 2.

He says he does not want to die, but in fact he is just minutes away from losing his life. His last words were “Oh God, Oh …..” and the line went dead as Tower No. 2 started to collapse.

There were many calls just like this one, from both towers. That horror this man lived for the last few minutes of his life has been relived tens of thousands of times in the last ten years on TV, radio, YouTube and in magazines and newspapers throughout America and the rest of the world and will continue to be relived tens of thousands more times into the foreseeable future, just as the attack on Pearl Harbor is relived even today.

But the horror of 911 is not what we want to discuss in this article.........................
