Beyond 9/11: Portraits of Resilience,

For optimal viewing experience, visit the site from your desktop or iPad. If the story of the United States has a theme so far in the 21st century, it is surely one of resilience. To hail that spirit on the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2001, TIME revisited the people who led us, moved us and inspired us, from the morning of the attacks through the tumultuous decade that followed. These astonishing testimonies — from 40 men and women including George W. Bush, Tom Brokaw, General David Petraeus, Valerie Plame Wilson, Black Hawk helicopter pilot Tammy Duckworth, and the heroic first responders of Ground Zero — define what it means to meet adversity, and then overcome it.

9/11 jumpers: America wants to forget victims who fell from Twin Towers

One woman, in a final act of modesty, appeared to be holding down her skirt. Others tried to make parachutes out of curtains or tablecloths, only to have them wrenched from their grip by the force of their descent. The fall was said to take about ten seconds. It would vary according to the body position and how long it took to reach terminal velocity — around 125mph in most cases, but if someone fell head down with their body straight, as if in a dive, it could be 200mph. Horror: A person falls to their death after jumping from the north tower following the audacious terror strike which shocked the world a decade ago When they hit the pavement, their bodies were not so much broken as obliterated.

And yet, tragically, they are in many ways the forgotten victims of September 11. But there are other, more complicated, reasons. 11 septembre 2001. Au, un 11-Septembre de bugs et de baptême du feu. Le | • Mis à jour le | Par Claire Ané, avec le concours d'autres "anciens" C'est un beau mardi de septembre 2001, il est bientôt 15 heures à Paris et certains d'entre nous ne sont pas encore rentrés de leur pause déjeuner, tardive car il fallait achever la mise en ligne du Monde.

Au, un 11-Septembre de bugs et de baptême du feu

Est-ce l'urgent de l'Agence France-Presse sur nos écrans d'ordinateur, une chaîne d'info française, un coup de fil ou un SMS qui nous annonce qu'un avion a percuté le World Trade Center ? Une décennie plus tard, aucun de la douzaine de vétérans de la rédaction d'alors ne sait vraiment, sauf qu'on a allumé CNN. L'AFP annonce qu'il y a"au moins un mort ", et déjà cela paraît absurde. Pendant que l'un de nous "bâtonne" au plus vite les dépêches pour publier un premier article, pendant que le reste de l'équipe, alerté, arrive essoufflé et que nous faisons groupe au pied de l'écran suspendu en hauteur, pendant que la tour nord fume, on voit, en direct, un deuxième avion percuter la tour sud. La presse mondiale face à l'indicible. Des images emblématiques mais partielles.
