The terrorist attacks on 9/11 have caused many debates over the years since they occurred back in 2001.

Chapter 1 Physical phenomena from previously Summarized Cases The first example of the phenomena at issue here comes in the very first of the cases in my first book on reincarnation, namely that concerning William McConnell, a New York policeman. Trying to prevent a robbery, he was shot six times, the fatal bullet entering his back and penetrating his left lung, heart, and main pulmonary artery. One of his daughters, Doreen, five years later bore a son she named William. From the age of three the child gave evidence of familiarity with details of the life of his grandfather.
