Description

Annie writes: 2021 was the 20th anniversary of 9/11. I read about the accounts of the people who jumped – those who were in the floors above the point of impact, or those whose escape routes were blocked. I hesitated long and hard over this idea and nearly gave up at various points of writing it – for obvious reasons. Who am I to even begin to understand this?

Then I listened to an interview where a man recounted the final moments of his young wife, who passed away in the 9/11 attacks. He said that they were on the phone, and he could hear the noise and panic around her. She was a go-getter, and she had made the decision – and told him so on the phone – that she was going to jump, before they lost reception. He said that was completely like her to choose this – that she wouldn’t have waited for the inevitable, she would have made a choice.
And then he said, very softly, “For a moment, it must have felt like flying…”
