Twins Construction 1972: first time I have seen a picture of the twin towers when they were being built.... 9-11 #NeverForget #911 #Remembering911 9/11/2001

"This photograph intrigues me so much! Why isn’t this the most famous photo from 9/11 instead of the falling man? Isn't two people holding hands after jumping, more significant than 1 man? It makes me wonder what the story is behind this photo... were they friends or lovers, or just strangers who were too afraid to jump alone? It shows that people need a helping hand even in their final moments!"

the photographer who took this picture: David Handschuh: When only one plane had hit the World Trade Center, I was going to the site of an airplane crash and this horrible fire burning sixty, seventy floors up. There was no doubt in my mind that the firefighters, paramedics and police officers would put out the fire, rescue people, and everything would be okay. I was standing in front of the south tower when it got hit by the second plane and realized that what happened was very intentional, not accidental.
