But then, I also sent this letter:

There are those who say that the war against Iraq has nothing to do with the Twin Towers disaster.

When I hear this, I remember a picture I saw on the Internet not long after the disaster. It is of a man--a "jumper"--falling from one of the two towers. Upon close inspection, you can see that his shirt has been burned off and his arms are charred black from the flame. What did this human being have to endure before deciding the best way was to jump 100 stories to his death? What agony did he have to go through--from the dastardly act taken by the terrorists?

[This man was a father's son, he was a father, he was a brother, he was a son.]

If we can rid the world of one terrorist so that this will not happen again, it will be worth it. Just remember the jumpers who paid the ultimate price on September 11, 2002.
