|As seen from space|
One stops mid-sentence: Wait, what?...Did we just see a stunt?...No, think it is a bomb of some sort...WAIT?...(focus in tight, there, there...) Smoke, look!...Explosion (Did you see that?!!)...What? See the second tower?...A plane? What you mean there are two planes?...Both towers, smoke and fire?...Oh, dear God, no! NoNoNo......
People start running, some screaming...Get in that door, get out of the smoke!...Confusion
Noise, so much noise...Sirens...
Live TV, from the Man on the Street...Both men find their voices, but there are tears. Screen switches to main news. Their voices are scratchy, confused.
What could they say? What should they say? How could they say it?
How could they say anything then, or in the hours that followed? Or the days? Years? Or over the next 18 years?
What can we say now?
Even now, looking back, what will anyone say in days, years, decades to come?
Tomorrow is that day, 9/11.
