Human Dignity Even In Death


An impacting moment at the Nine Eleven Museum.

Hidden in a crevice of a wall from those who would be affected is an exhibition honoring those who jumped from the burning towers to their death.

Photos of people in midair tumbling to the ground flashed before my eyes.

There was also a quote from an eye witness which stated, and I paraphrase.

“My eyes looked up at the building. A woman in a business dress approached the edge of the window of the towering inferno. Tightly she held her skirt down with both hands so that none could see her dress flying in the wind, and then jumped.”

What a poignant example of human dignity even in death.
