The Images That Won’t Let Us Go

The Images That Won’t Let Us Go.

“Can you watch it anymore? Can you stand to see the moment of impact, the fireball, the disintegrating towers again and again? The answer is so strange: Yes, you can.

You keep watching because you think you might miss something. But what? Something terrible always seems about to happen, piled on top of the terrible things that have already happened. So you hunt, orbiting the channels, long into the night, simultaneously fearful and eager.

What you can’t turn off is your brain.”
