February 26th 1993: World Trade Center bombing

On this day in 1993, a truck bomb was detonated below the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City. The bomb was intended to knock the North Tower into the South Tower to destroy them both, but this did not occur. The attack still killed six people, including a pregnant woman, and injured over one thousand. The terrorist attack was planned by a group of conspirators and masterminded by Ramzi Yousef. In 1994, four men were convicted of carrying out the bombing and two more were convicted in 1997. The group were funded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, who would go on to be the principal co-ordinator behind the destruction of the Twin Towers on September 11th 2001. The memorial to the victims of the 1993 attack was destroyed on 9/11, but they are currently memorialised at the North Pool of the National 9/11 Memorial, opened in 2011.

e ora che tu vivi la tua vita,
e io vivo la mia,
cosa è rimasto?
di me, che cosa ricordi?
mi basterebbe averti lasciato anche solo mezza ragione per sorridere,
che mi ricordassi,
qualche volta, tra un pensiero ed un altro,
niente di importante, non voglio essere niente di più
ma dimmi,
dopo tutto quello che c'è stato,
come facciamo a non essere più
a non parlarci più,
a fingere di non essere mai esistiti
come si cancellano le persone?
ti prego,
come si fa a lasciare andare?
