The Falling Man

Do you remember this photograph? In the United States,
people have taken pains to banish it from the record of
September 11, 2001. The story behind it, though, and the
search for the man pictured in it, are our most intimate
connection to the horror of that day.

I've posted this before, Tom Junod's wonderful article titled "The Falling Man," but if you haven't seen it, or haven't had the chance to read it, I don't think you'll be sorry if you click on the link and spend the time today, on the anniversary of 9/11.
