September 11, 2001 will forever be etched into people’s minds as 9/11. The al-Qaeda attack on America was an atrocious and senseless assault against humanity. This strike was clearly designed to topple the US from its lofty perch as a superpower. But the momentum of the American machine is simply too great for an isolated event to bring it to its knees – or is it?
Jason Geraghty, a reluctant Irish immigrant to America, lost his beloved wife on 9/11. She was working for a government agency in the north tower of the World Trade Center. In Jason’s mind, that made the United States Government responsible. This was the third and penultimate time they had wronged him. The attack changed everything for Jason. His objective in life transformed into seeking revenge against the Great Satan. He committed himself to singlehandedly creating an apocalyptic event – something that would actually bring down the United States of America after all. Similar to the ‘Butterfly Effect’, coined by Edward Lorenz where a butterfly flapping its wings may result in an apocalyptic event elsewhere in the universe, 9/11 was just the beginning – the first flap of the butterfly’s wing. No event is in truth ever isolated.
