Now they are gone

Philippe Petit and the Twin Towers

The story of a bright summer morning, and what one man driven by a wonderous dream can achieve. 

There was that bright morning in 1974, and another morning, that also started bright and beautiful, just over 5 years ago.  The contrast between what happened in the sky on those days like a sharp cut illustrates the fundamental opposition between our civilization and the forces of radical Islam that wish to destroy it.  Our wonder, our hope, our joy and appreciation of life, our ideals and dreams of reaching the heights of human achievement, contrasted with their ideal of nihilism, their striving to destroy what they could never envision creating, their love of death.

“We tell them, in as much as you love life, the Muslim loves death and martyrdom. There is a great difference between he who loves the hereafter and he who loves this world. The Muslim loves death and [strives for] martyrdom.” Mufti Sheikh Ikrimeh Sabri
