    Default What Do You Think About When You See This Picture?

    I know this much: I don't think about despair. I think about meeting my inevitable fate head-on, with great courage.

    I think about 9/11 and a documentary I watched about finding out the identity of the man.

    Regarding the social and cultural significance of the Falling Man, the theologian Mark D. Thompson of Moore Theological College said that "perhaps the most powerful image of despair at the beginning of the twenty-first century is not found in art, or literature, or even popular music. It is found in a single photograph."

    Mark D. Thompson, do you even know courage symbolized when you see it?

    If I remember correctly they did. And his family were thoughtful but unsure it was him. They didn't seem shocked nor surprised but I suppose after the acceptance of his death it's not entirely too amusing to know.

    Yes I don't think I would want to see a photo of my loved one plummeting to their death.

    I wonder what he was thinking. I wonder what I would be thinking if I were in that situation.

    Thinking about it and doing it are two, slightly different things.

    But that image is heart wrenching.

    A more powerful one is a couple holding hands right before they go.

    (There's a fake one of two people falling holding hands, photoshopped, sick fuck whoever did that).

    But I remember this one was real, it was on some documentary that I can't seem to find, but I recall it was on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. I watched about 9 hours of documentaries and just about got sick. But very sad, and then vey fucking angry.



    Despair perhaps, but also perhaps the alternative of being burned alive making it the obvious, easier choice. These weren't suicidal people. Who the hell on this planet knows what they were thinking/feeling RIGHT before?

    Not really sure how you consider this picture "Courage." This man was an innocent civilian amongst many that were already dead when the 1000 degree plus inferno from the jet fuel had them trapped.
