    Wow.....

    I wish this didnt exist....and i wish i could have reached into my screen to "catch" him (and all the others) but it does and i couldnt. I cried watching this just now....even all these years later. Memories came tumbling in with it. My baby sister and her (now) husband lived very near the towers and sent all of us into a panic when none of us could reach them for many scared hours afterwards.

    (Yall can move this....i wasnt sure where to put it.)
    At the end of the day...I am still glad that I am me. Tail and all.

    Im guessing that he preferred that over burning to death. Still the media isn’t required to broadcast it.

    I too was desperate to reach family that morning, and could not. Fortunately, everyone was OK, other than in shock. However, I did lose an acquaintance that day.

    That picture is the portrait of final desperation... and an accumulation of the horrors of that day.
    I never lose.... I either win, or I learn.

    The media did everything it could do to make sure, in accordance with the White House wishes, thst the Americans not get angry that some people did something that day.

    I'm more pissed off thst some people, our alleged leaders, did this than I am at "those people".

    Not enough of "those people" died to expiate their crimes.

    Religion of peace my ass.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    I live and work in a gun friendly state. I carry in and away from the office. I would be able to put one in my noggin to avoid the fate of that poor man. I would hope I got a pass at the pearly gates for my suicide. That man, working in New York, an unfriendly personal carry city gave the man two choices, burn or leap. God bless him and the other jumpers.

    Same here but I don't carry around town, I don't feel unsafe. I carry out in the wilds fishing, riding, camping. It's wide open here and hundreds of miles from anywhere else.

    Long drives too sometimes, depending.
