  1. Lest we forget. It took the media about three hours to try to censor/deplete from History the tragic tower jumpers.

    I was there. I knew and worked with lovely people who died on the top floors of Tower Two. One woman and her husband had recently adopted a daughter. They never found her remains. I see her picture on the Memorial Wall and I cry (no one sees it).

    I recently re-read General Moore’s “We Were Soldiers . . . ” Remember (and envy) Rick Rescorla, who had bravely served in the Ia Drang and, as VP of Security, saved all his people, and (DUTY!); went back in to be sure; and gave his life for his friends. Greater love hath no man . . .

    The missing: for weeks NJ/NY people were searching hospitals; placing snapshots on walls; etc. in hopes of finding loved ones alive.

    I knew dozens who in a few hours were no more. The funerals: there were too many funerals. It was beyond melancholy.

    Trust in God. Don’t be angry. Be rational. Be prepared.

  2. I have always been horrified that these videos have been so censored.
    If there was a video of my child forced to jump from a terror-impacted building I would have put up a web site where it would have played over and over for years to come, with a few pointed comments regarding kumbaya-ism and a few other matters.

  3. At the end the video states “An estimated 200 people fell to their deaths” That is almost one out of 10 who survived the impacts but not the collapse.
