I Saw the Second One Hit

Children born as the towers fell reflect on the world in which we live

Fourteen years ago two planes flew into two towers, and like Romulus and Remus millennia ago, ignited a battle over western civilisation. Was 9/11 the beginning of the end, or just another day? President Bush said of the attack that “night fell on a different world”. As the towers fell in New York, twin girls were born in suburban Australia. I saw the second one hit asks us to take a look at this different world that these twins, now teenagers, inhabit: their beliefs, their fears, their politics and their calisthenics.
