B’demgħa f’għajnejhom jiftakru fl-attakki 9/11

L-attakki li ħasdu d-dinja, propju llum 11 ta’ Settembru, 15-il sena ilu – L-attakki magħrufa bħala 9/11 li kienu serje ta’ erba’ attakki suwiċida fil-belt ta’ Washington u New York, l-Istati Uniti. Ħafna jqisu dan l-attakk pjanat b’dettall bħala wieħed mill-akbar attakki li qatt saru fl-aħħar snin. Kien il-grupp militanti al-Qaeda li wettaq l-attakki 9/11, wara li rnexxielu jaħtaf erba’ ajruplani tal-passiġieri li telqu minn Boston, Newark u Washington u kienu fi triqthom lejn San Francisco u Los Angeles.

Kien propju l-mument meta l-militanti kraxxjaw l-ajruplani fit-Twin Towers tal-World Trade Center li madwar 3000 persuna tilfet ħajjitha, numru li seta’ kien akbar, li kieku l-passiġġieri abbord ir-raba’ ajruplan ma pruvawx jieħdu kontroll tal-ajruplan, li aktarx kellu fil-mira tiegħu l-White House.

15-il sena wara, jibqa biss il-memorja ta’ dik li ħafna xtaqu li kienet biss ħolma kerha. Hekk kif illum nfakkru l-ħajja ta’ dawk il-vittmi li ħarġu mid-dar iżda ma rritornawx lura, wieħed jistaqsi u jaħseb dwar l-attakki terroristiċi li qed jaħsdu l-ħajja ta’ nies inoċċenti ta’ kuljum. 

Fuq Twitter, huma bosta dawk li kitbu dwar dawn l-attakki, u li użaw il-hashtag ‘NeverForget’.

Jekk segwejtx dak li kien qed jiġri fuq l-aħbarijiet, jekk kontx hemm preżenti qalb il-paniku tal-mument jew jekk kont għadek lanqas biss twelidt, żgur li taf dwar dan l-attakk u li dawn ir-ritratti se jeħduk lura u  jgħinuk tifhem dak li għaddew minnu l-familjari u n-nies li kienu fuq il-post.

Simon Barnett, Director of Photography of LIFE.com; former Deputy Director of Photography of Newsweek "In a manner of speaking, after the insanity and bedlam and brutality of 9/11, the morning that followed came as something of a surprise. You felt as is if the sun wouldn't rise in the quite the same way. Jonathan Torgovnik made this photograph on Sept. 12. While it doesn't have a soundtrack it is an incredibly quiet picture (although I'm sure the audible reality may well have been different). It forms a bridge between pre and post-9/11Ñan office that most of us can relate to, have visited, or worked inÐagainst a spectacularly lit backdrop of heinous devastation. 9/11 was the photographic event of all-time; so immense that it was tough to get grounded in, to take measure of, to begin to believe what had happened. This picture does that." Kent Kobersteen, former Director of Photography of National Geographic "The pictures are by Robert Clark, and were shot from the window of his studio in Brooklyn. Others shot the second plane hitting the tower, but I think there are elements in Clark's photographs that make them special. To me the wider shots not only give context to the tragedy, but also portray the normalcy of the day in every respect except at the Towers. I generally prefer tighter shots, but in this case I think the overall context of Manhattan makes a stronger image. And, the fact that Clark shot the pictures from his studio indicates how the events of 9/11 literally hit home. I find these images very compellingÑin fact, whenever I see them they force me to study them in great detail."
