Last night here at Jammy Toast we settled down after tea to watch some telly and decided to watch a documentary about 9/11 and some of the people who died in the collapse of the towers. The programme took a look at some of the people who jumped from the towers rather than be burnt alive within. The official line on these people has always been that these people didn’t jump – because that would be considered suicide – but rather they were blown out of the buildings by fire or explosions. This is an understandable position because many religions consider suicide to be a sin and it also saves the relatives of those who had “fallen” from thinking their relative had suffered; maybe they had been killed in the explosion that threw them from the building.
