A Better Death

I'm sure many of you have seen this pic before. This is a pic of a man jumping out of the World Trade Center on that fateful day (9/11/2001) in New York. Back then this picture had me in total shock for months and even now I still haven't gotten used to it. Everytime I look at this pic, I feel a fresh sadness for that man (and the the rest of 200+ men and women who were forced to jump to their deaths that day). This pic is a very special pic in the sense that alot of journalists later tried to find out the identity of this person but didn't really succeed. More than that, what this pic tells me is whoever it is, he shows true courage and grace even at the hands of death. Look at the way he is falling. So quiet, peaceful, full of grace and strength. It's not what death is portrayed to be. We all have this fear within us when we hear the word 'Death'. But he doesn't seem to be fearing death, neither is he screaming or struggling. He's just quiet and down he goes, down, down, down to the hands of something that'd handle him 'better' than the raging fires inside the building. He still shows hope, absolute stillness and a 'better' choice of death for him at that point of time. I know that there are(were) many people who suffer(ed) around the world because of terrorism but this kind of death is beyond imagination. Where one is forced to commit suicide! I find it difficult to even imagine his horror and pain when he had to make that ultimate decision of his life, perhaps within 10 or 15mins and that too just to die?? Just imagine facing a situation like this where you're being 'executed' (for nothing) and you only get the choice of the way you die (as if that's any comfort). I think in that kind of situation I too would have done what he did 'cos I don't want to burn alive. Human courage is immeasurable. What would you have done if you had no way out of that building that day?

Since it's getting close to the rememebrance of that fateful day and it's many victims, I'd like to dedicate this post to all innocents who perished on 9/11...to all those who had nothing to do with this stupid war but had to pay the ultimate price for it...to all those who's cries went unheard till their last breath...to all those who left their loved-ones behind right in front of their eyes...and to Joanne Ahladiotis. I know Joanne's cousin and we became friends after 9/11. I had to reach out to someone, to share their pain so Joanne was my choice. Joanne was only 27 and worked as a Systems Analyst for eSpeed, Cantor Fitzgerald on level 104- similar to what I do and her personality sounded alot like mine too. She left her beloved mother and sister behind. Apparently on that day staff at her office were getting retrenched . She had told her mum the night before that she was in fear of losing her job. Instead she died that day. Life is as fragile as that drop of water hanging from a leaf. The sun and the moon are forever but you and me are not. Never forget that Joanne was here.

May God bless those who died on that fatefull day...

SaffronSaris said...

It was shocking, wasn't it? I woke up to newspapers with horrific photos splashed on the 1st page. I thought there was some new movie coming out. That day, everyone in school was passing round newspapers and ignored the lecturers. Now, we are still facing the impact of that 1 fateful day. I hope people do sober up.

Keshi
Seeing that man falling to his death is so heartbreaking!
But, it was his choice to die this way. Was it as act of bravery...
I do not know.
We will never know what prompted him to jump... maybe fear of dying in a raging fire!

I myself do not think I would have jumped! I would be keeping hope alive till the last second that I might be rescued!
I do believe people were comforting each other with the hope they were going to be rescued.
Sadly hope was in vain for all the
magnificent people that lost their lives on 9/11.

I Have a book that has a picture of nearly every victim of 9/11.
When I look at their faces, I am so overwhelmed with sadness!
Bless them all... and bless all the loved ones that lost so many
precious friends and family members!
Feeling very sad at this moment!

Ash said...

I am numbed...seeing that picture. Absolutely shocking.

~God bless, and may all those souls rest in peace~

Jewel Rays said...

WOW...it look like he was doing that in a split second without thinking... but i guess when standing in that situation..he kinda expected to die already and so he probably thought that jumping down is taking the easier way out.

Rohit Talwar said...

Very true. Shocking indeed. These guys can never be forgotten. But why this post in a sad flavour? You got reminded by someone or some incident?

And hey, Sorry! I haven't been reading blogs for a while..was extremely tied up with college submissions :(

From fatality to Dignity

I admire that Humanity which refuses to burn as a victim and choose Optimism even at the last moment .

deepsat said...

some images of that fateful day remains etched in our memory even today. and they were all innocent ppl!!

touching post keshi!!

Het Waghela said...

Keshi,

I feel all the days when there had been such an terrorist activity harming the innocent people are very black days.

I wish people don't use such method to convince the government or anyone.

RandomThoughts said...

spoke to Joanne's relatives? What happened that made to post such a senti piece Keshi? Hope everything is fine on your end?

Harry said...

I really feel bad when I think about 9/11..I dont wanna remember when the two planes crashed into the World Trade Center in New York City...but I dunno the memories are still very much in my mind..

That person might have thought that this way of giving up to death is the most suitable option.
Btw,it is really a touching post from ur side..

ektaran said...

I still remember 9/11 2001...it was a Tuesday...My bro works very close to WTC & used to visit his branch office in WTC almost once everyday...n on Monday 8/11 2001 he was in the WTC till 9 pm....But God had better plans for him...he had to visit another office on 9/11 not the one in the WTC....just can't forget those days...n my sis-in-law was stuck in Brooklyn for 2 days...

loved this line "Life is as fragile as that drop of water hanging from a leaf."

desperado said...

thts incident was a real shocker
but if anything good came out of this...it showed the world...what out here in the Indian Subcontinent faced day in and day out....the world finally realized that terror was for real...n its sad n pathetic tht such an incident only could wake up the world community


P.S. I love this song by amy lee...she wrote it for her deceased sis i believe

Yashita said...

I had never seen that pic...thanks for puttin it up...that pic is...there's something in it, isn't there?...Someone once said, "if the truth of life is death,then why do we fear death?"

Dunno...but that man showed us otherwise, didn't he?I can't imagine being in his position...jumpin from that buildin...with so much calm and poise...I wonder wat was goin thru his mind at that time...we'll never know!

Sudeep said...

i agree Human courage is not measurable but still we fear death .. if it somes silently well n gud but if it stares u in ur eyes then sure any strong person will fall on his/her knees

my respects to the ppl who lost their life on tht fateful day too..

Sep 11 ... sad day.
Anyways the will to survive against all odds is the way to life.
Death is not something we can wish away.
In many ways death is the only truth of life rest all is illusion.

Kumar Chetan said...

Death is bitter truth. Everyone have to accept it. 9/11 didnt kill few people it changed lives of millions. Hate crimes and misunderstanding is on rise.

Parag said...

"Back then this picture had me in total shock for months " How often do we remember that picture any more ? Its not about you.. but in this fast world.. human life is facing deflation (as against inflation) and becoming cheaper by the day..
Especially in poorer countries in Asia, such deaths, terrorist attacks etc are forgotten within a week..

I wish we could chose our deaths.. would have been interesting..
But the surprise in death, like in life makes life more interesting..

I guess there is some reason why its best that we forget the past.. because today is here to live and tomorrow has more to offer

alex said...

Keshi,
I havent seen that pic before. I feel its because of the gravity pull, it looks graceful.

Although, most of us fear death, it is a part of life, though sadly it is the end of our life and the last point of our quest for wisdom.
Though i believe that there is more to life, after death.

Eclipsed Thoughts said...

9/11... was a very shocking day, i remember we had classes during our 1st semester in BE and we didnot attend cnymore alsses, newspapers were hurling (though it was not the print time) and everyone rushed to the canteen to watch the news....
I saw that picture before and i thought it was the best a man could do for himself before dying... even i wuld have jumped coz i am too scared of being burnt alive.... the fear of fire is worse than fear of height for me... afterall we are gonna die anyways, isnt it?

terrorism is something which everyone hates. i have never been able to understand what is the hwole point in "freeing" people or bringing a revolution in the world when the human beings are killed in thousands? Its everywhere....

okay, since you have put up this post, i think now i will watch the vidow of "wake me up when september ends" by greenday!!

I hope, peace settles in the world permanently.

Die Muräne said...

I'm sure suicide is always the wrong decision. But maybe in a situation like that it's different. Hmmm, maybe...

Ghost Particle said...

the human courage, certainly during testing times we bond together or as individuals we strive for solutions. But more than that in times of despair, the solution comes out of the box. Maybe we would have fallen into a heap of something and survived. So its not a suicide, but a run for freedom and for survival. Amazing what the human mind can do and achieve.

Your 6 degree connection is amazing. its a big pity that most of the foreginers who died in the tragedy was forgotten except for americans. Its true, there was a Malaysian too, and the person was forgotten. Then why did America rally such a big force and throw tantrum when it was clearly for political motives. And innocent people like joanne had to die because of overzealous generals and presidents. Pity.

Orikinla Osinachi. said...

Sweet Keshi,
The blood of the innocent cries out for justice.

The murderers are still unrepentant, because these devils have continued to attack and murder more innocent people.

And until Muslims all over the world condemn and join us to track down and arrest the other Islamic terrorist suicide bombers, I will condemn all Muslims as equally guilty as Osama bin Laden and all their fellow agents of Satan in the masquerade of religion.

Do you know that surveys have shown that majority of Muslims all over the world approved of what their evil brothers did on 9/11 and went ahead to encourage them to attack and bomb London on July 7, 2005?

How can a religion that claims to be of God approve of the Satanic attacks of 9/11, London 7/7 and others and they are still unrepentant?

Islam is not of God.
Any religion that approves of the murder of the innocent and continues to hide the murderers is of the devil. And I shall make sure that evil religion is totally destroyed so that the innocent shall be saved and there will not be another 9/11, London 7/7 and these devils will no longer have the power to terrorize us again.

Those who don't want others to live in peace, don't deserve to live.

May God comfort the bereaved colleagues, friends, relations and families of all those killed on 9/11 and other terrorist attacks all over the world.

God bless.

christabelle said...

Oh Keshi, memories, i remember that morning so well, it was my 1st time in the US, it was just like any morning, i remember coming
downstairs and seeing my friends watching it live, i thot it was a movie and was about going to the basemnt, when someone asked me why i didnt want to luk, i replied that i hated horror movies, everyone just shouted; "movie? this is REAL"! i remember letting out a scream, it was really bad.

This particular picture was etched in my memory for a very looong time, talk about desperation giving way to reason.

What else can i say, the wickedness in the world is just too much.

May God continue to be with all the families of those who lost their loved ones on that fateful day.

Ebun said...

May God comfort all who lost their loved ones. Its not easy to loose a loved one.

nonsensical violence... amd so much loss....! a good dedication, keshi!

hey, thanks! :)

and i love evanescence

Shiv said...

A minute of silence for all of them who died on that day..Nice touching post gal...

Nikita said...

Keshi,

911 was an evil act. The perpetrators of this incident were sick individuals driven by the greed for power.

May the souls of all those people who perished rest in peace.

Hiren said...

You are right about what you said in the last sentence "Life hangs under the constant shadow of death".

As for september 11, one should also get to the root cause of the problem in addition to remembering-I wrote an award winning spiritual poem about the unity of mankind above organized religion- Legacy of September11,2001


As for suicide; a nueropsychiatrist once told me that people are overobsessed with physical causes but mental and emotional causes being invisible are far more dangerous.

Napolean said that sometimses it takes more courage to live than to die.

The way you have described the fall- peaceful and all; didn't know you could get so spiritual- normally you are so vibrant.

Excellent post.

Fleiger said...

There are a few times when the suicide is honourable, like say seppuku.

And I really feel that it was better the media did not get the name of the person in the photo. He/she is better off as a faceless, nameless victim of terrorism, rather than just a person who jumped to death.

Nelly said...

I was in a great mood until I visited this blog and seeing that dreadful picture again. I will always remember were i was and what I was doing when the first plane hit the first tower. I remember stand out in the plant I work at and another coleague that i worked with came up to me saying " Holy shit man an airplane hit the world trade center" Now im thinking a small 2 person propelled type plane. Nothing like a commercial airliner. So I go upstairs turn on the TV in the conference room only to be completely stunned by what I was about to see. I witnessed live the second plane slam into the other tower....I swear my stomach dropped like I was on a roller coaster. The thought of the terror those Men, women, and Children must have gone through knowing they were going to Die on that airplane was just heart wrenching. How can one have that much hate???? I guess ill never know because I dont.

And to think... September 11th is not only My WEDDING ANNIVERSARY its my wifes Birthday... :(

Has to be me said...

Thats such a damn awful feeling. Ppl dying fr no fault of theirs & even worse is, such evil death.

U never know if theres gonna be a tommorrow.

Also u r never sure if ur loved one is gonna be safe tommorrow.

Wish a micracle happens & these damn terriorists causing these innocent deaths are non-existent.

God bless all those souls.

hey keshi,
hope ur doing good..long time...the post as always was so touching...had not seen the pic anytime...so much of grace in that...yeah life...its just a bubble...so delicate so fragile....

KK said...

Nice post keshi in the wake of 9/11... Its very saddening to even think about that day...I was watching the happenings on CNN live. The image of people jumping out of that building still remains in my mind. The movie United 93 also made me very sad when I came out of the theatre.
If I was in that guys situation, I would have done the same thing, I dont think I can take the pain of being burnt alive...
May god give the strength to all the families who lost someone on 9/11 and other terrorist attacks.

lil _kath said...

Ahh... how can i forget that scene ? i mean when that day happened , we're watching live news at home (and i know the whole world was watching it too) before the second tower was attacked. Its really a heart-breaking moment... ;(;( what a sad day...
... May all who lost lives there rest in peace now! and Godbless their families too!

... enjoy weekend sweetie muaahh!

hugss,

Seema said...

Tht incident was such a rude one..innocent lifes lost for selfish n inhumane motives of some insane people!
This person wd have been a great man with such conviction n unbeatable courage that nothin festered his courage..all he cd do was choose the way he died n he did that GRACEFULLY!!
May their souls rest in peace.

Rachel Heather said...

Being that my entire family is in NYC and few escaped death by being late to work that day - I find that it is the small stories of courage and helpingothers that inspires me about that day. Whenever I look upon that day - now I feel love, amazement, and awe at what humans are capable of becoming in the face of trajedy

God Bless all of them

Pallavi said...

It still gives shiver thinkin about that huge disaster...I think so too that we are all droplets can fall anytime from the leaf..

AnonymousBlogger said...

I can assure you if I was in the same situation, I wouldn't be that calm and cool.

I certainly won't ever forget that day. I remember it clearly. We'll be feeling the effects of that day for decades to come.

Cherrypie said...

It's still so shocking and senseless. How can people do this sort of thing to other innocent people?

prithz said...

>>>Life is as fragile as that drop of water hanging from a leaf.<<<

Whoa!!!! Perfect!!!! And Keshi, how can u ask me how i mite feel if i were there when the building caught fire... sorry girl... i simply cant everrrrrrrrrrr imagine myself there....Shit!!!! The thot itsef brings a chill across!!!! I am damn scared of death... as is most of our wish, i belong to the league of people hu wanna die in their sleep!!!!

Your post was too hard to take in Keshi... Hope the innocent souls are better off in heaven than they were in this world.. God bless them!

karmic_jay said...

I don't have much to add to what you and others have said. Whatever higher power that may be hope.. it provides peace to the victims of 911.

priya said...

Its sad to see it. Its not only the courage, but his decison of death. I think wat he wud have thought while falling- wish he cud relive or escape.
The pain of falling and the pictures taken by a strong person, brings what life and death is.

We cud only pray for them and let them live happy with angels.

Blessed said...

How I remember that day......it was only yesterday even tho in just a few days it will be five years. I remember I was at work and one of my friends/co-workers was listening to radio and the radio station was interupted. A plane had just crashed into the world trade center and then another. We had no TV that was available to us...and then my boss finally turned on the little 13 inch in her office. I remember Katie Couric and Matt Lauer giving us the latest. I was so scared, so paniced, so grief stricken, so shocked, so freaked, so sad, so mad, so confused, so helpless.
I turned to God. I slept with a light on. I thought it was the beginning of the end of the world.
I cried for a month. I knew no one personally but yet I knew them all. They were my brothers and my sisters. They died for my country.

Everytime I enter a stairwell, I think of all those that day who tried to escape and perished.

I don't think there is a day now that I don't take my freedom for granite. I still don't feel completely safe. And then just so very recently those terrorists were soiled from their airplane stealing, bomb planting attacks.

I am so lucky, so blessed-hense my blog name, Blessed. That name is becuz of 9/11 and my love of the Lord and how very lucky and fortunate I am indeed.

Your pic of the man falling-it's terrifing. What would I have done?
Would I have even lived to try to flee? Would I have sat there to burn or be crushed in a crumbling building? Would I have ran to the millions of stairs? I don't believe I would have jumped. I think I would have sat there and cried tears that I had never cried.
Tears of absolute terror. And I probably would have died.

God bless all those heroes. All those whose names I do not know but know they were my family.

Blessings to you Miss Keshi and your soul searching/soul delving blogs.

Sush said...

hmmm.. that is really soo true.. you make me think in a different angle towards a lot of things. I mean, I was too very absorbed in my own world and even though it was a shocking incident, the 9/11, I had little time to ponder on it... good that you woke up those feelings in me and made me think over...

Kavi said...

Those were torrid times ! But it is people like you, who made an effort to reach out, who continue to make a difference to the world !

I think it took a lot of courage for that person to jump, dont know if I could have done that. I pray for all the families who lost loved ones.it was a sad day.

these pics will b embedded in our minds till we die... n i pray none of us face such a kind of death... ever!

Neha said...

Honestly, like o couple of others on this blog, I too had not seen the pic before!!
OMG!What an act of bravery!!Dont even know what must have been going on his mind!
U have already wrote down everything I can possibly say..
All I can say is, BRAVO! to this man..
Also a salute to all the people who died because of the acts of terrorism!

ANKIT said...

hi keshi,

was not well myself the past few days,,,
a thought had crept in my mind during the liesure time,,

"what if we knew from b4 hand when our end time was out to come....!"

niki yokota said...

heard that some of these photos of dying ppl in 9/11 are made by computer graphic and not real.
so i wish this photo is the same..
joanna was only 27!? thats really too young to die..(><)
and how beautiful she was!!
i will cross my fingers on the 9/11.
thanks keshi-chan!!

Homo Escapeons said...

I am not sure what would go through my mind in that situation.
I hate tall buildings to begin with. I hope that I never find out.

I often wonder how many more people will die the next time a low flying plane enters a heavily populated area. The Air Force will probably just shoot it down and ask questions later.

This reminds me that Bill Maher had his Politically Incorrect show cancelled because he said that it took courage for those young men to fly the planes into the buildings. It is arguable that religious fanaticism is a form of mental instability but those men actually convinced themselves that they were doing a great thing. Despite all evidence to the contrary they believed that their GOD would be pleased with their courageous sacrifice. How dumb is that?
This world is full of other CRAZY people and somewhere, someone is dreaming up and planning another horrible idiotic plan to kill innocent lives for their version of God.
Anyone still preaching this hatred (and there are plenty) should be ejected from the free world and sent home in a cage.

Please, please, please world..open up your history and science books and THINK about the reality of the Why,How,& When we evolved to Where we are today! We may never know Who dreamed up the whole thing beyond the Big Bang but if you are a theist it is safe to assume that blowing each other up in office buildings was not a part of the original plan.

The Girl Who Sold The World said...

That's such a sad picture...I remember watching this scene on TV that very night (it was about 12:30 am, IST when the channels started broadcasting it). I guess I'd have done the same thing rather than wait and get burnt to death. But then, I think that's not really courage. I'd have done it because I'm more scared of fire than heights and would prefer to jump off to death.
Peace to all who lost their lives on 9/11.

By the way, hello. :) It's been eons since I visited Blogger *curses her excessive work*.

sophie said...

The key to happiness is freedom, and the key to freedom is courage."

IT TAKES COURAGE...

It takes courage

To refrain from gossip
When others delight in it,

To stand up for the absent person
Who is being abused.

It takes courage

To live honestly
Within your means,

And not dishonestly
On the means of others.

It takes courage

To be a real man or a true woman,

To hold fast to your ideals
When it causes you

To be looked upon
As strange and peculiar.

It takes courage

To be talked about,
And remain silent;

When a word would justify you
In the eyes of others,

But which you dare not speak
Because it would injure another.

It takes courage

To refuse to do something
That is wrong

Although everyone else
May be doing it

With attitudes as carefree
As a summer song.

It takes courage

To live according
To your own convictions,

To deny yourself
What you cannot afford.

To love your neighbor
As yourself!

It takes courage

To face death
As its to live...


God bless thir souls...
everybody who laid down their lives that day...

Hey Babe, This is perhaps the best post that I've read on any site. You really caught me off guard today. Excellent post. I remember exactly where I was at when I heard that the first tower had been hit. It's like an earlier generation who still say they remember where they were when John F. Kennedy was shot. It's burned into our memories. Here's some irony for you. I was engaged to get married on the 14th of September 2001 in New York. My brother and I couldn't wait to get there to trek around the towers. We scheduled a week in the Big Apple from the 9th to the 16th. Luckily for me about a month before the wedding she left me. I was devastated... but in retrospect.. I still wonder where I would have been on that day. .. oh and .. the best part of the story? she was sleeping with a married guy.. his wife caught them and threw him out. Homerun for me!!! Missin ya ;)

its true that human courage is immeasurable but the courage comes into action only when you are forced or there is some sort of emergency otherwise it rests in peace deep inside us..allowing fear to take it turn .isn;t os?

Its so sad.. We can see NYC from the corner of our block.. It was aweful that day looking at that dark smoke & feeling the pain inside thinking I wish I could do something to help. I knew a girl whose hubby worked in Cantor Fitzgerald and died that day. they were married for only 9 months.

I wanted to write a post about it since the begining of sept but everytime I think of posting about him I feel so sad. Haven't have the courge yet.

~~Samuru999

Margie I dunno what it is, but whenever I come across victims like these of a catastrophe as this big, my heart is like a river of tears that never stop crying...it will cry for them forever. Even now I feel terrible thinking abt each and every person who went to work that day and never came home. How sad.

**I would be keeping hope alive till the last second that I might be rescued!

Thats great Margie. That's real hope. I guess mebbe I'll try that for sometime too...but when the fires r getting too close to me, I dun think I'll let myself burn...I'd rather jump to my death.

dun be sad now...we r here for each other..HUGGGGGGGZ!

I so know what u mean..







~~Jewel_Rays

yes Amy he wud have felt that it's the 'easier' way out in that moment. But we all know it certaimnly isnt an 'easy' way out!








~~Rohit_Talwar

heyy Rohit WB I missed ya!

yep it's sad...we must never forget them.







~~Hazel_Dream

beautifully expressed! ty.

yes it's the Optimism indeed. Isnt that amazing!








~~Deepsat

yes and I shall never forget.








~~Het_Waghela

yes isnt that so naive and unfair to use such methods to prove a point to the govts? In that process so many innocents have to sacrifice their lives!








~~RandomThoughts

hey Im fine ty sweety. Just wanted to post something that has been on my mind since 9/11. These victims and their families.

yes I spoke to Joanna's cousin. She was so happy that someone all the way from Aus reached out to her. She was totally broken-hearted and apparently she was the closest to Joanne. She wrote me long emails after that and told me everything abt Joanne. And that she dreamt of Joanne recently. She thanked me so much for being with her at a time she needed to say to ppl (strangers) what/who Joanne was - how priceless her existence was.

~~Harry

yes Harry..so sad. I dun wanna forget the victims and I wont.







~~Ektaran

thats so good that ur bro was nowhere near it on that day!







~~Desperado

**...n its sad n pathetic tht such an incident only could wake up the world community

ur right. Sri Lanka knew terrorism for 20+ years and no one cared. Suicide terrorism was a daily thing in SL (and in India too). But no one cared cos we were developing countries. but hey when it happened in NY, it was a big thing...cos that's when some ppl even realised that there's indeed something called suicide terrorism! Sad indeed.

Yep Amy Lee's lil sis died. I didnt she wrote this song for her. Now this song has more meaning for me...thanks Desperado!







~~Ghee

hey Ghee tnxx! I got ur earlier comment in my prev post and I replied :) ty!

yes it's so sad. But some ppl love inflicting violence and death on others. We live in a very unfair world Ghee.

~~S0ulAsylum

**even air travel has become a rising pain in the u know where

so true. what a menace terrorism is!








~~Saby

I have tears for every innocent victim. But I can only do one post at a time na? And na I havent seen any other victim of terrorism having to do such a forced suicide! Hence my deepest respect and heaviest tears for this guy.








~~Yashita

**if the truth of life is death,then why do we fear death?"

yes but why we fear it is cos we dunno what's after death..the unknown scares us. We r so used to Life that Death sound so final...and that scares us. And a forced death like this guy's death is even more frightening.







~~Sudeep

Respect and honer r the words. Cos they faced the ultimate battle of their lives.


** if it stares u in ur eyes then sure any strong person will fall on his/her knees

so true. But this guy (and 200+ others) did something most of us will fear more than death alone. Jumping from that high a building, knowing they r gonna crash to their deaths.








~~Kautilya

**Nothings' in our control.. Really...

thats so true. I really believe in that. There's only so much we can do. Everything else is upto someone else.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

~~The_Light_House

**In many ways death is the only truth of life rest all is illusion.

I wouldnt say it's the only TRUTH of life. I'd say it's the only CERTAINITY of life.








~~Kumar_Chetan

**9/11 didnt kill few people it changed lives of millions. Hate crimes and misunderstanding is on rise.

ur spot on! It changed mankind forever.








~~Parag

hey Parag!

**How often do we remember that picture any more ?

I rem these victims very well and no I will never forget.

I know that we must look to the future but past is what has made us who we r today. So we cant forget the past entirely. From time to time, we must take a peek.







~~Alex

** I feel its because of the gravity pull, it looks graceful.

not really...cos I watched a documentary on ppl who jumped that day. This man was one of the very few who had stayed in that position till he crashed to his death. His many pics at many heights of the fall was shown. He was going down just like that except when he was reaching the bottom he took of his white-shirt. Can u believe that.

Others have been screaming as they fell and some others were holding hands as they jumped! I watched the entire documentary with very heave tears.

Im not sure what's after death...but I hope there's something lovely after death. For the beautiful ppl who didnt get to live here too long.








~~Eclipsed_Thoughts

yes I rem that day...I had just come back from gym and at infront of the PC for something, and there it was all over ther net!

**I saw that picture before and i thought it was the best a man could do for himself before dying...

yes ur right. Some ppl will fear it but I think it's the best he could do to himself at that time. I wudnt wanna burn alive either.

terrorism is a f#cked up technique to send msgs to govts. I wish ppl had more brains.

btw I love that song by Green Day.








~~Die_Murane

Suicide is not always wrong. Every person has his/her explanation that no one else would be able to u'stand, unless they themselves r in that situtaion.







~~Ghost_Particle

Ghosty heyyy!

**So its not a suicide, but a run for freedom and for survival.

yes one can see it in that light too...maybe he thought he's escape somehow. Also maybe its his way of saying 'im not gonna let u kill me, I'll die the way I want'...

I know that many ppl from many lands died in those towers. I read almost every person's profile when this happened. So many Indians who worked at WIPRO died too. But the US gives her man/woman the first recognition and we have to u'stand that Ghosty. Cos it happened in NY, the majority of victims were their men/women and it was clearly an attack against the white Americans (tho our ppl and many others became victims of it simply by being at the wrong place at the wrong time). But all suffered equally yes.







~~Orikinla_Osinachi

hey Ori hows u? Hope ur feeling better today.


**Do you know that surveys have shown that majority of Muslims all over the world approved of what their evil brothers did on 9/11 and went ahead to encourage them to attack and bomb London on July 7, 2005?

OMG did they say that? I cant believe that but then I can. Cos most muslims fail to prove to me that JIHAD is plain wrong. I just cant u'stand why even good muslims fail to explain that to me.








~~Dumbdodi

yes sweety...9/11 was a starting point for so many other unnecessary deaths too. And it was also the beginning of a huge change in the view towards certain races and religions. The world became more racist.

Chris u were there on that day? Thank God u werent in that mess.

Yes it's a very wicked world we live in.

~~Nikita

I hope those who did this will pay a heavier price when they meet their maker (whoever that is!).







~~Hiren

hey I will read that for sure, tnxxx fot the link!

**the unity of mankind above organized religion

ppl get so obsessed abt 'organised' religions that they forget who they really r...what they should really be doing. I find that difficult to u'stand. Why do ppl get so driven by 'organised' instituitions?


**Napolean said that sometimses it takes more courage to live than to die.

I honor that statement. Yes sometimes life can be demanding than death. And no 2 ppl will handle the same situation in the same way. SOme can live thru it, and some cant. So we should never judge.

I can be very spiritual Hiren. D u know I'm also a lead singer at a spiritual society here in Syd :)







~~Fleiger

**Seppuku

whats that?


**He/she is better off as a faceless, nameless victim of terrorism, rather than just a person who jumped to death.

Spot on! Thats what I said too as I was watching the documentary. Some journalists tried to find out his identity. From analysing his clothes they thought he's sure to be a worker from the Windows of the world restaurant. And that he was a non-white American - either Spanish or Black. Apparently there were 2 such ppl working at the restaurant. They even traced the families. But how can anyone say who he was. cos the distance was too much to track the exact identity.

I say he's the personification of courage and grace in the face of death.



Keshi.

Keshi said...

~~Nelly

It must have been terrible to witness all of that live. What a sad day it was!

**How can one have that much hate???? I guess ill never know because I dont.

I have the same Qn for every person who wishes death upon another. How can anyone have that much hate? HOW?

ur wedding anv and ur wife's bday is 9/11? Well I know its kinda sad but heyyy it all happened b4 9/11/2001 na? so cheer up...and celebrate ur marriage and lives as a dedication to those victims too. Life is precious and every moment we breathe is a gift.








~~Has_To_Be_Me

yes we never know if tomorrow we will be here..so enjoy today and cherish the memories of yday.

tnxx sweety!








~~Mr.Maverick

tnxx Arun! And I never got to see the towers in real. Always wanted to visit NY and those towers.

~~KK

**If I was in that guys situation, I would have done the same thing, I dont think I can take the pain of being burnt alive...

when u said that my heart raised in sheer grief. Cos KK ur a dear friend of minenow and to imagine u'd ever face that kind of thing was terrible! It was too much for me to take...I hope none of my friend wud ever have to face that kind of situation - Huggggggz mate!








~~Lil_Kath

hugggggggggz Kath, I hope u had a great weekend. I had a good one.








~~Seema

**This person wd have been a great man with such conviction n unbeatable courage that nothin festered his courage..all he cd do was choose the way he died n he did that GRACEFULLY!!

Spot on! And how selfless is he that he went so quietly. And look at the bloody terrorists who rammed planes into buildings...how ugly the way they died!








~~Rachel_Heather

hey Rach! Im so glad none of ur family/friends were affected by 9/11.

** I find that it is the small stories of courage and helpingothers that inspires me about that day

so true. How ppl help each other in adversity and tragedy. I read of so many such stories that happened on 9/11 and I was so overwhelmed by it all...cos as much as there r evil ppl on this Earth, there r a whole lot of angels too!








~~Pallavi

such tragedies r too big to fully u'stand or to fully forget Pallavi. It's too massive for our brains to process.







~~AnonymousBlogger

**I can assure you if I was in the same situation, I wouldn't be that calm and cool.

I wont be calm either. But after I realise that Im not gonna make it, I'd somehow make myself calm down and take the next step, even if that meant a better death. AB Im someone who wont die just like that. If I was in that building and I realised that it was a terrorist attack, I'd choose the way I die. I wont let any terrorist burn me to death. I'd def jump.







~~Saby

I have fear...but I'd use my courage to shape that fear.







~~Cherrypie

HOW is the word. Just how?



Keshi.

Keshi said...

~~Prithz

yes this post is a hard one to take. But it's the bitter truth Prithz. It happened to thousands that day and it's still happening to so many innocents ard the world. They didnt/dun wanna die but they r forced to cos of few sick minds. And those victims very well could have been u/I.

** am damn scared of death... as is most of our wish, i belong to the league of people hu wanna die in their sleep

So do I. But do we have a choice Prithz. I guess my dad is lucky then...cos he died in his sleep. No one knew and I bet even he didnt know he was pasing on.







~~Karmic_Jay

tnxx mate!








~~Priya

**. I think wat he wud have thought while falling- wish he cud relive or escape.

ur right...mebbe he had a faint of escaping somehow. And that makes me sadder cos he didnt make it.








~~Blessed

ur comment had me in tears Blessed. Cos I could feel every emotion u were feeling for those victims. U really feel sad for them and u truly value every moment we have here. I could feel that in ur words. TY.

** I knew no one personally but yet I knew them all.

Spot on. Thats exactly how I feel with these victims. As I read their profiles, they were either me, my mum, my sis, Manika, Jackie, Matt or Jane...ppl I knew and from every walk of life. I knew them so well. So just imagine their terror in that building that day. I cant even go near that!








~~Sush

**I mean, I was too very absorbed in my own world and even though it was a shocking incident, the 9/11, I had little time to ponder on it...

I too was like that back then Sush. But alot of tragedies and tears have stopped me obsessing over SELF. Lately I have realised I AM not everything. SELF is the cause for so many miseries. So let go of SELF, live and let live.







~~Kavi

WC Kavi n tnxxx!
:) and u too.








~~Tarun

tnxx Tarun! hey I cant get to ur blog??








~~Starry_Nights

Im with ya. It takes alot to do such a thing knowing ur gonna die anyways. But given that choice, I'd choose to jump than to burn. Definitely it'll be alot quicker and alot less painful.







~~Musings

thats right. Hugggggggggggz!








~~Neha

yes I say thats BRAVE. Some ppl may say it's not an act of bravery but desperation. But to me it's bravery. Cos even at a desperate time, how many of us will really be bold enough to do that?







~~Ankit

get well soon Ankit.


**"what if we knew from b4 hand when our end time was out to come....!"

I guess then alot of ppl will live more happily and selflessly. What say? I think all the hatred and violence is cos ppl FAIL to realise that this LIFE is not FOREVER.








~~Niki_Yokota

heyy Nitk tnxx!

**heard that some of these photos of dying ppl in 9/11 are made by computer graphic and not real.

nope Niki, not this pic! This was very real and his entire fall was taken in many shots. I saw a documentary on this photo and its Pulitzer prize winning pic.

~~Homo_escapeons

Every word u said is true and I agree 100% mate. Some ppl r just plain stupid to THINK that there's a blood-thirsty God out there who'd grant them salvation if they killed.


**This world is full of other CRAZY people and somewhere, someone is dreaming up and planning another horrible idiotic plan to kill innocent lives for their version of God.

I always think abt this. Like how many evil plans must be taking shape right now!


**if you are a theist it is safe to assume that blowing each other up in office buildings was not a part of the original plan.

so damn true!

heyy u where have ya been? I missed u. WB n hugggggggz!

**But then, I think that's not really courage. I'd have done it because I'm more scared of fire than heights and would prefer to jump off to death.

one could say that it wasnt courage. But I say it is courage. Why? cos even if it was fear, would u have done it?

Well anyways she missed a great guy...what's wrong with her????







~~Sujit

**but the courage comes into action only when you are forced or there is some sort of emergency otherwise it rests in peace deep inside us..allowing fear to take it turn

true. Thats cos every human trait/emotion needs a trigger to spark it.

**I knew a girl whose hubby worked in Cantor Fitzgerald and died that day. they were married for only 9 months.

But you know what would happen to me is, I wouldn't ever get to the point where I say "Yeah, I'm dead".

I think I would always keep that little bit of hope that maybe, just maybe, I'd somehow make it out alive.

Sunita said...

Everytime i see that pic, i wonder how that person must be feeling at that time. I hv done bungee jumping more than a couple of times but there atleast we know we r tied up and there r ppl to look after us, yet when u r going down in that pace the feeling is indescribable. May God bless the souls!

Jewel Rays said...

yeah Keshi.. definitely not the answer but i guess when caught in a "i could pee in my pants right now" situation...We just could possibly go bonkers. However, it was a rash decision i feel...There must have been so much mixed emotions...Scary eh

Keshi said...

~~AnonymousBlogger

hey AB! Hope u had a good weekend.

**I think I would always keep that little bit of hope that maybe, just maybe, I'd somehow make it out alive.

yeah thats the spirit. Always have hope. Maybe I just give up easily.







~~Sunita

yes it'd be terrifying! U have done bungee-jumping? Hell I'll never do that cos Im so scared of heights!

yes Amy it must have been so very scary for that guy! Words r not enough.

there is a saying in tamil " petroor pavam pillaiyai vanthu serrum"

"the sins of a parents bestowes their wards"

for the mistakes of the king - his subjects suffer - is fact.

no sympathising from me for that act.

I am not afraid of death but scared to live

**"the sins of a parents bestowes their wards"

I dunno if that's true. No one knows.





Keshi.

Known Stranger said...

thatz how the saying goes...

" rajanin pizhaigal avan makkallai vattum"

the subject suffer for the mistakes of the king is the meaning.

do you read tamil by the way - i doubt you are either cyelon tamil origin or tamil origin.

Keshi said...

thats what the books say...that doesnt mean it's the truth KS.

Keshi.

Known Stranger said...

It is true dear. A mistake of a kind costs a whole kingdom. recent history doesnt make the saying true. You have plenty of evidence that happenign right before eyes... a simple mistakes costed many of their children.... let us no go back to bc or early ad' just in 21st century and late 20th century are the evidence after we are born...

History books write the truth with okie some imagination and fantacies.

what you sow is what you reap.

Keshi said...

I dun see the truth in that way. Cos thats generalisation based on few events KS.

Keshi.

Known Stranger said...

the universe rule isnt it that the king's or the country head's decision affects his country men. are you sure it is a generalised statment. isnt it the good decision fetches the people good and a worse decision of his makes his subjects sufffer.

if you say it is generalised statment - i back of on this topic....

I think i make a sense in this atleast.. normaly i speak stupid - hardly i say soemthing sense and that is also you had told it is generalised.. okie...

when a woman say so - i heed.

Keshi said...

KS thats true. But what I meant was abt how u said that children suffer cos of parents' deeds. It's not always the case. The individual is responsible too.

Keshi.

Known Stranger said...

in my view - need not be right (but i feel i am nto wrong) - self declaration first before i share my views.

ofcourse you are right that a individual person is responsible for the deed -but a deed of a parents or a forefather can certainly affect the growing up of a children -

a small example - if a father is pretty indulged in gambbelling ( i am very typically comparign in the Indian society - not with other lands as my exposure is little) and the family is left to no care - the children gets affected - the way the parents deed certainly affect the generation down the line. A simple example - a well do mirasuthar family of olden zaminthar aristocrate family has one fore father who had been just a casanova and been flirting around with woman keeps the tag name branded till the great grand children with the infamous surname - he cannot do anything about it but jus thave to accept - ofcourse - the individual can make it change with his sheer detetmination yet - what the tag he gets while he grow cannot be done anything..

A rapist son - certainly when in society grows up - you cannot stop others influencing him with his fathers deed.

A philanthrophist son certainly have a virtue of respect in the society of his fathers deed.

A magistrate son would be always reffered with a honour in the place he grows up...

A big dept left by a father is certainly on the shoulder of the son or daughter ( let me give equal respect)

a big wealth earned by father if he doens leave a will on some one else - certainly the deed of earning money bestows to his children...

a small deed of a grandfather of 1920's in india going to british land ( that time - india is a part of british and need no visa - it was a british passport) had changed the life style of the next generation while his peers of cousins and own blood may be a popur in indian .

Certainly the deed or a sin of parents carry down to the children
you cannot avoid it - ofcourse the individual can change it

when wealth of a parents is inhireted the sin also gets passed on..

i DONT KNOW IF YOU are convinced in my view - i may not be right but wont easily give up to accept i am wrong that it is only bookish words.

I will respect your view that you consider it is not true - wont show the impulse that i am right. i would prefer to be humbel and say - may be i not right but i am not wrong in my view

Keshi said...

I see what u mean KS...but they r all individual stories. I used to believe in that b4 (like u do) but not anymore. Cos I see a whole lot of good parents with bad kids and vice versa. So to me, eventually it's to do with the individual.


Keshi.

if you believe so fine - i respect your view.

I still can't look at that picture without my heart breaking. At least there's consolation that he died on his own terms, nobody elses, but the compulsion that made him jump in the first place - you can neve forget that.

i can't imagine what i would have done if i was there.
in one bomb here i went towards the place to help . in another i just watched. which is what i did on 9/11 as soon as i saw it live on tv.just before the first building collapsed.

Sittingnut thats right...live the best we can.
