The video below shows pictures of the very people I think of every single day when I think of 911..........the poor 'jumpers'. When I think of that, I try to think of the ways I'd like to see their tragic ends avenged before I die. cont....
Here's more of those THEY show the horror of September Eleven more than anything, to this American other than the planes themselves hitting the buildings.
"Can't Cry Hard Enough - 9/11 Tribute that Millions Cried to"
I've done quite a bit digitally as well as annual September 11 writing tributes over the years and I've gotten in the habit of relinking them the day before since it's going on 6 years of this for me, and this is some of my best ones in my opinion:
You can see my finest writing in my opinion over the years I've been doing this on this blog in my 2996 Tribute in 2006 here.
Please do read it if you haven't before, I'm quite proud of it.
I can't find the hi res version.... sorry.
It was also in featured in a couple other tributes, including this one which is my favorite use of it, it comes at the 1:10 mark but the entire youtube tribute is really good.... and years later me and the gentleman who made it still communicate often.......
Here's another(fullsized) I did the following year (2004) as well..
Now for this on 'the Counter version" of that tragic day;
I will say this on that day, in that the 'only questions' I have about 911 is the seemingly 'missing' contents of the buildings. I don't know about you, but just my personal junk fills up a freaking semi. I have trouble imagining all 200 floors of SHIT 'pulverizing itself ' on the 'way down'.
But, then I say to myself "this has never happened either" so we don't reallyknow what happened to the thousands of yards of carpet, office chairs, computers and so on...it's a tough call, but I know my little brother worked at Merrill Lynch until 2000 in New York, moved back to Chicago in 2001, was in the buildings 3 days before and went to 12 funerals, not to mention our countless hours of conversations on the subject since we 'grew up' in New York, I tend to believe the official version.
Then again, computers and carpet are early indestructible by their very nature. Almost more so than steel if you've ever tried for the hell of it to destroy one completely.
This is an interesting radio interview I've listened to on that side of the fence that you can explore for yourself compiled over the years btw..I always listen to BOTH sides of every argument and this one included. You can't be FULLY informed otherwise. The Let's Roll Community Forums.
