I have watched loads of 9/11 things. I have my opinion of what happened that day and why but that's not important right now.
It seems like most everything I have seen has been about the buildings either from the air or the aftermath. I had almost forgot there were so many people on the ground that day going here and there, working, relaxing, or whatever. Their perspective of it I could never fully understand or even imagine but this video made me realize how horrific it must have really been for the people on the streets on a regular day.

I hope this link works if not it would be worth your while to look for it. I try to keep my links up to date but it's not always possible.:~)
The Falling Man
I remember 911 well as I am sure many people do. I was at home asleep when a friend rang me and said New York was being attacked... No one knew what was going on and I was scared. The events of that day were traumatic and what haunted me most and always stuck in my mind was the images of people jumping. I couldn't face that...
One night of insomnia I saw this on TV. I decided to face the one thing of that day I had never faced. The one thing I couldn't look at... People jumping.
The images still haunt me but after seeing this I feel different somehow. I feel like these people were forgotten in a way... Over 200 people jumped or fell that day... I had no idea there were that many till I saw The Falling Man.
But why did they jump? How could they? I couldn't....
Question Everything & Think
I guess like everyone I have thoughts and opinions. So I thought I would share some of them here. Some may sound weird to you or even crazy or silly but this is me... the good the bad and the ugly.I have strong opinions but I like to learn new things and I like to try to see things from as many views as I can and keep a very open mind.
Question everything and think!
