That is so sad. To think his last words were frustrated and angry to an operator he didn't know. I heard some of the calls from people to loved ones which were haunting.

There was a documentary a few years ago, I think it was called 9/11 falling man about the cover up of imagery of people jumping from the towers, I think I cried the whole way through, I can't even begin to imagine the conditions they were in to do that- its heartbreaking.



A tragic day.

My Mother-in-law fell off an abra into the creek in Dubai. I'm betting it was a tad warmer.

I couldn't actually look at that huge photo of the people falling... it's one of the most terrible, most horrid and most haunting images I have ever seen. You know, blood and guts shock, but that one had so much desperation and was psychologically disturbing. Horrid.

And here we all are in high-rises!

I can't look at that. I'd become a serious hater if I did.
I was in Saudi when that happened. Some people were celebrating...saw it with my own eyes.
