They've been showing retrospectives of this already. There's one thing they never show, but I remember seeing live: The people jumping out of the building. The fall wasn't as frightening as burning alive. I don't forget any of it, but those jumpers are particularly horrific.
I only knew one person who died, that I know of, anyway, and I only met him once.
I remember thinking at the time that that even had changed the world.
