10:18 A.M. A few days late on the anniversary date …

Imagine you were in those buildings.  It’s a normal workday , maybe you had the usual morning rush , getting your kids off to school.  All normal …

You get to work , get settled into your place , start digging into whatever sort of problems your job has you solving.  Just like every other day. 

Suddenly , because of a 7th century mandate , as interpreted by a nutjob in a cave half a world away , your building shakes … Pretty soon it’s on fire … 

You try for the stairs but can’t get there , the stairwell is choked with flames and smoke … You’re trapped … The fire is getting worse … 

There’s nobody coming to help you that can give a tiny bit of hope. The only way out is death … But staying where you are is being burned to death … 

Which way do you take ? Do you burn to death , slowly , agonizingly , or jump and get it over with in one moment , after a long fall to think about it ?…

MORBNOTE ; I’ll never be able to completely free myself of this image … After seeing it the first several days of the initial 24 hour coverage on CNN ( for weeks ! ) all stations removed that video … 

It is indeed hard to look act … It gets the mind running frantically in circles …
