My 9/11 truth

On 9/11 2001, Lana and I lived in Staten Island and commuted to the city each day, so we were both a part of the immediate population who experienced what happened first hand. I even helped clean apartments in the buildings overlooking ground zero in the months afterwards (nothing noble here, it was just a shitty job I had at the time) And both Lana and I were in and around Manhattan and talked with dozens of people for at least 6 months afterwards, some of which were very close friends who were eye whiteness’s to the planes hitting both towers and then the towers collapsing.

And believe me, we were all looking for answers back then. But not once was there ever any mention of the sound or sight of any demolition charge explosions in the moments before any of the buildings collapsed. (And just imagine this, in a city of five million people, so with at the very least fifty thousand people all closely watching and listening before the buildings fell… and no one noticed three buildings were demolition-ed?)

And Yes, it was very hard to believe the towers fell. So as you can imagine, everyone in that immediate time afterwards was talking and speculating on how it could of happened. And I mean, EVERYBODY WAS TALKING TO EACH OTHER, on the buss, on the ferry, on the subway, which is not the usual in NY. lol. And not just about the attack itself, but about how unbelievable it was that the towers just fell like that.

So I get it how people that weren’t there might still be speculating on how the towers might have fallen (And yes, even besides the jumbo jets that slammed into them, it was still hard for all of us to believe.) And honesty, I would have loved to have heard this at the time, even as second-hand, that someone heard it was a demolition, or heard or saw some charges go off, or even that something seemed off or suspicious about how the buildings looked when they collapsed, since that would have helped me to make some sense out of it all. But I never did hear that. Not from anyone. Not even as a rumor. (Not till at least three years later on the internet, and now still 15 years later)

So for Lana and I, and everyone we knew there and had talked with about it at the time, (and we all searched together for answers for a long time) but with no first-hand experience that would even make us consider it was a demolition, we finally had to just accept that horrible, inexplicable things like this can happen, unfortunately. Like when jumbo jets slam into buildings, well, buildings collapse. Funny, it sounds pretty obvious when I say it like this… as obvious as us trying to make sense out of it, I imagine.

(AND THE THIRD BUILDING FELL FROM STRUCTURAL AND FIRE DAMAGE – CAUSED BY THE TWO MASSIVE BUILDINGS FALLING RIGHT NEXT TO IT- WE ALL HEARD AND SAW THEM EVACUATE IT LIVE ON LOCAL TV THERE)

Believe whatever you want though!

    Well written Tim, and I appreciate the point of view. I have several other friends that were there at the time (some of them still are there) have told me much the same thing. For soem reason It is gratifying for me to hear it from you too.
