It’s interesting that in this instant communication age you can watch significant events live.

I was up late one night in 2001 watching TV when they switched to breaking news from america – live feed of one of the twin towers burning after the first plane crash. Over the next few hours I witnessed the crash into the second tower, and their eventual collapse. Live, as it happened.
