The Falling Man

Thanks to Hugh Hewitt I found this post by Michelle Malkin. It's extraordinary; please read it.

As I've pondered the "Falling Man" photo over the last four years, I've wondered what I would have done in his situation. There really was no moral choice to be made, it was simply a matter of choosing the manner of one's death: I am going to die in the next few seconds. Do I stay here and burn, or fall? The latter seems preferable, and as a religious person, I believe that the doors of heaven were just as open to the Falling Man, whichever way he chose to enter them on that day.

That the man was even placed in the position of having to make that choice is what we should never forget.
