Why 102 Minutes?

The title of this blog comes from the title of a 2005 book by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn, on the fight by some of the WTC 1 and 2 survivors to escape from the burning buildings. 102 minutes was precisely how much time they had from the time American Flight 11 crashed into Tower 1 at 8.46 am and its subsequent collapse at 10.28 am.  Not only is it the very first book about 9/11 that I read, it is also a fitting reminder that one decision, one call, bad or good, can literally mean the difference between life and death.
