102 Minutes: The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers
102 Minutes: The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers
The dramatic and moving account of the struggle for life inside the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11, when every minute counted

At 8:46 am on September 11, 2001, 14,000 people were inside the twin towers-reading e-mails, making trades, eating croissants at Windows on the World. Over the next 102 minutes, each would become part of a drama for the ages, one witnessed only by the people who lived it-until now.

Of the millions of words written about this wrenching day, most were told from the outside looking in. New York Times reporters Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn have taken the opposite-and far more revealing-approach. Reported from the perspectives of those inside the towers, 102 Minutes captures the little-known stories of ordinary people who took extraordinary steps to save themselves and others. Beyond this stirring panorama stands investigative reporting of the first rank. An astounding number of people actually survived the plane impacts but were unable to escape, and the authors raise hard questions about building safety and tragic flaws in New York's emergency preparedness.

Dwyer and Flynn rely on hundreds of interviews with rescuers, thousands of pages of oral histories, and countless phone, e-mail, and emergency radio transcripts. They cross a bridge of voices to go inside the infernos, seeing cataclysm and heroism, one person at a time, to tell the affecting, authoritative saga of the men and women-the nearly 12,000 who escaped and the 2,749 who perished-as they made 102 minutes count as never before.

In 102 Minutes: The Untold Story of the Fight to Survive Inside the Twin Towers, New York Times writers Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn vividly recreate the 102-minute span between the moment Flight 11 hit the first Twin Tower on the morning of September 11, 2001, and the moment the second tower collapsed, all from the perspective of those inside the buildings--the 12,000 who escaped, and the 2,749 who did not. It's becoming easier, years later, to forget the profound, visceral responses the Trade Center attacks evoked in the days and weeks following September 11. Using hundreds of interviews, countless transcripts of radio and phone communications, and exhaustive research, Dwyer and Flynn bring that flood of responses back--from heartbreak to bewilderment to fury. The randomness of death and survival is heartbreaking. One man, in the second tower, survived because he bolted from his desk the moment he heard the first plane hit; another, who stayed at his desk on the 97th floor, called his wife in his final moments to tell her to cancel a surprise trip he had planned. In many cases, the deaths of those who survived the initial attacks but were killed by the collapse of the towers were tragically avoidable. Building code exemptions, communication breakdowns between firefighters and police, and policies put in place by building management to keep everyone inside the towers in emergencies led, the authors argue, to the deaths of hundreds who might otherwise have survived. September 11 is by now both familiar and nearly mythological. Dwyer and Flynn's accomplishment is recounting that day's events in a style that is stirring, thorough, and refreshingly understated. --Erica C. Barnett

Kariyani-11: The Characteristic of Affection On the night of Kartik sudi 11, Samvat 1877 [16 November 1820], Shriji Maharaj (Lord Swaminarayan) was sitting on the veranda outside the east-facing rooms of Vasta Khachar’s darbar in Kariyani. He was wearing a white khes and a white dagli made of chhint. He had also tied a white pagh around His head and was wearing garlands of yellow and red guldavadi flowers. Tassels of yellow flowers were also dangling from His pagh. In addition to this, two barbers holding torches were standing before Him, one on either side. At that time, an assembly of munis as well as devotees from various places had gathered before Him. Thereupon Sachchidanand Swami asked Shriji Maharaj, “What are the characteristics of a person who has affection for God?” Shriji Maharaj replied, “He who has affection for his beloved, God, will never disobey the wishes of his beloved. That is the characteristic of affection. To take an example, the gopis had affection for Shri Krishna Bhagwan. So, when Shri Krishna Bhagwan prepared to leave for Mathura, all of them together decided, ‘We will infringe the norms of family traditions and society, and we will keep God here by force.’ However, at the time of Shri Krishna Bhagwan’s departure, they looked into his eyes and realised that it was not his wish to stay. As a result, all of them remained far away, because in their hearts, they feared, ‘If we do not act according to God’s liking, God’s affection for us will subside.’ Thinking in this way, none of them were able to utter a word. “Then, after God went to Mathura, even though Shri Krishna was only three gaus away, the gopis never disobeyed his wishes by going for his darshan. They realised, ‘If we do go to Mathura contrary to God’s wish, then the affection that God has for us will diminish.’ “Therefore, the characteristic of affection is exactly this: One who has true affection for a person acts according to the person’s wishes. If he realises his beloved to be pleased by his staying nearby, then he stays nearby. On the other hand, if he realises his beloved to be pleased by his staying away, then he stays away; but in no way does he behave contrary to his beloved’s wish. That is the characteristic of affection. So, since the gopis had true affection for God, they did not go for God’s darshan without his command. Only when God sent for them in Kurukshetra did they have the darshan of God, but in no way did they disobey God’s command. Therefore, a person who has affection for God would never disobey God’s command. He would only act according to God’s wishes. That is the characteristic of affection.” Then Shriji Maharaj said, “Now let Me ask a question.” The munis responded, “Maharaj, please do ask.” Shriji Maharaj then said, “Except for those vishays which are related to God, a devotee of God treats all other vishays as vain. Thus, he associates in the five ways only with God. Now, suppose God were to issue the following command to such a devotee: ‘Live away from Me.’ In that situation, if he keeps a selfish desire for God’s darshan, it would amount to disobeying the command; and if he does not follow the command, then the love that God harbours towards that devotee would not remain. Therefore, just as that devotee has forsaken the worldly vishays, i.e., sights, sounds, smells, tastes and touch, does he also forsake the vishays related to God, or does he not? That is the question.” Each of the munis gave an answer according to his level of intelligence, but the question was not answered satisfactorily. They then said to Shriji Maharaj, “Maharaj, You will have to provide the answer.” Thereupon Shriji Maharaj replied, “If a devotee has deep affection for God and treats the worldly panchvishays that are not related to God as vain, and if he is firmly attached to God via the panchvishays, then wherever such a devotee goes by God’s command, the form of God also goes with him. Moreover, just as that devotee cannot remain without God, in exactly the same way, God also cannot remain without that devotee. In fact, He does not leave the heart of that devotee even for a fraction of a second. Therefore, such a devotee does, in fact, constantly maintain contact with God in the five ways. How? Because the same panchvishays that no being can stay without, that devotee has considered to be vain; instead, he has attached himself to God in the five ways. Therefore, that devotee maintains a constant relationship with God.” ??

Pre with Finnish track and field athletic team visitors May 1975
Pre with Finnish track and field athletic team visitors May 1975
The comments below are largely derived from an article by John Conrad of the Register-Guard, April 30, 1975. The Finns arrived in Eugene Tuesday, April 29, 1975, after a 21-hour flight. Pre brought them to his home for pizza and cold beer before sending them off to sleep. When a couple who volunteered to house some of the Finns did not show, Pre bedded down the guests, threatening to send his roommates packing. The six athletes were slated to be joined three weeks later by Lasse Viren for races on May 21 and 29. The meets set up for the Finns were slated as follows: May 4: Finnish Tour Meet, Madras OR May 9: Finnish Tour Meet, Coos Bay OR May 15: Finnish Tour Meet, Burnaby BC, Canada May 21: Finnish Tour Meet, Seattle WA (this planned meet never happened, instead Pre and the Finns competed in the California Relays in Modesto, CA, May 24) May 29: NCAA Prep meet, Eugene OR Pre was the originator and main promoter for this tour. He planned the tour as a cultural exchange as well as high-level track meets. He recruited talent from the U. of Oregon, Oregon State, the Oregon Track Club, and Club Northwest. Pre's close friend and confidant, Frank Shorter from the Florida Track Club, also agreed to participate. The Finn's track season begins in June, so this tour was important for them in that it afforded their first outdoor track practice and competition of the year. Pre said that possibly more Finns would have come had the trip been firmed up earlier. Tuominen also said that many Finnish distance runners were reluctant to travel because their cross-country season was in progress with national championships in about a month. Prefontaine and Tuominen had forged a relationship during Pre's travels to Europe, with Touminen helping Pre navigate the hazards of European racing. Jaako got Pre into the European circuit and made sure Pre was paid for his appearances. In return, Pre set two American records running in Helsinki. Jaakko was Finnish team leader and promoter, but not the coach since each athlete had their own coach to plan their programs. Jaako also introduced Pre to the sauna, leading Pre to personally build his own sauna at the home he purchased--a matter of great pride. Pre invited the athletes from Finland to compete in the five meets in May 1975. Pre was very fond of the Finns and raced in Finland more often than any other country outside the US. These were Pre's last meets as he died tragically the night after the final race in the series at Hayward Field, Eugene OR. Pre wanted Jaako to send a Finnish team to compete in the northwest, using Eugene as a base. Pre organized the venues himself without AAU sanction at first. (REF: Out of Nowhere by Geoff Hollister, Meyer and Meyer Sports, 2008, pp. 109-114) Pre hoped to lure Lasse Viren as part of the Finnish team to run the 3-mile race on May 29th with him and Frank Shorter and at an earlier May 21st meet in Seattle (that never took place), both part of the series of the Finnish Tour meets. Viren committed to the run in what was Pre's final race on May 29th. However, he dropped out of the meet on short notice begging off for a leg injury. Pre ended up running a 5000m instead. The 5000m race was the 1972 Olympic event which Viren won and Pre placed 4th. Pre always wanted a chance to run against Vilen in that event to prove he could beat him. Oddly, Pre DID beat Viren in the 5000m on May 29th--it just wasn't in the same race. Viren, despite claims of injury that kept him from the meet in Oregon, had no problems racing the 5000m on the same day in Finland that Pre ran that distance in Oregon. Viren came in 7th in the race in Helsinki with 13:51.2; the winner, Czech runner Pavel Penkava ran 13:48.0. Pre ran the Oregon 5000m in 13:23.8, 27.4 seconds faster than Viren! The Finnish Athletes and others who traveled to Oregon included the following (if you know of others, please leave a comment): 1. Jorma Jaakola--Javelin, with a best distance to 282-11 1/4 2. Peniti Kahma--discus, 1974 European champion 3. Antii Kalliomaki--Pole Vault, 1975 European indoor pole vault champ with 17-11 1/2 4. Pirkko Helenius--long jump and sprinter (the only female), LJ best of 21-7 1/2 5. Raimo Vilen--sprinter, with times of 10.0 in the 100m and 20.8 in the 200m 6. Rune Holmen--5000m, best time of 13:42.0, 28:40 in the 10,000m Jaako Tuominen, Finnish promoter Ilpo Nikila--trainer, masseus "Mr. Tickle" Elmer Ukkola, trainer Markku Kukkoano--200 and 400m (probably dropped out of tour--no race recorded) Seppo Tuominen--3000 and 10,000m (probably dropped out of tour--no race recorded)
