This one hour documentary was a powerfully emotional experience. I know that many people cannot bring themselves to watch anything regarding the tragic events of 9/11 even till this day so this will be especially tough for them to experience. This covers the search to identify one of the most striking images from that eventful day, that of the falling man.
The purpose isn’t just to find out who the person descending to their death was but to pay a tribute to the hundreds of people that felt they had no choice but to jump. It’s a painful thing to even think about but it happened. The personal stories in this documentary shed more light to the events that forced these people—like you and me—to do such an insane thing. It’s truly a touching experience to watch this. Amazing how a simple photo could lead to all of these incredible stories.
Also, this is a reminder of the lessons learned on 9/11. We cannot ever forget what we all experienced back then. No matter how much time that passes nor how busy our hectic lives become, we can’t afford to take anything or anyone for granted. We must do our best to appreciate each person and as many moments as we can. After all, from the time we are born, each and every one of us is the falling Man.
