For someone who doesn't even dive off the side of a swimming pool this is rather terrifying.
I have mixed feelings about this. The first is that it was indeed like flying and how beautiful to see the city in a new perspective. And it didn't seem to be an overtly political act but that surrounds my other feelings. The Freedom Tower felt like a sacred space to me when I was there and I couldn't help but think of the people falling and jumping out of the Twin Towers when they were hit. Maybe that's what he wanted us to see or think about. I'm glad you posted it. The Kid says he also jumped The Sears Tower. This did set my heart going. Thank youm
I thought the same thing about 9/11 but I don't know what the parachute jump symbolizes for these guys in the vid. It could be an act of reverence, who knows? Sky diving is something I'd never want to do. There is enough drama in the world and adrenaline racing through my body on any given day. I don't need more! But I know some people love it.
Just saw on the news the three dudes involved got arrested! It is a super cool video though. HOpe it was worth it for them!!
