The Balcony of an Inferno
A little while ago Patrick shared this video, which is of a construction worker in Houston stuck on a balcony of an apartment building on fire. It’s pretty suspenseful.
Moreso than the people who were incinerated on impact, and even those in the planes who knew what was going to happen, are those that were stuck in the inferno. Who started the day going to work, and ended the day choosing between being burned alive or jumping. Of all of the 9/11 images, it’s the jumpers that hits me the hardest.
This video has a happy ending. I wouldn’t be sharing it if it didn’t. But when I saw it, I thought of today.
