I know that nothing that anybody can do to replace the ever-brave Norberto, as I know for a fact. GOD bless the Hernandez family and all the other families that lost someone that they hold truly near their hearts and thank you for listening.

i am here in eastern ky.  since 9.11  I have had horrid thoughts go thru my heart,  it was a tragic day this day of 9.11,  my family and friends have had several of our sons and daughters (including my son) join the military in there words TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, I only wish for this family to know that my heart aches for all of the families of 9.11 so for this man to be called a jumper is not fair. but if one looks closely at some of the pics of the people in the towers windows who is to make the call that he did not stumble or loose footing while standing there in the window trying to get a small token of fresh air. how do we not know that he was not pushed accidently by the person behind him trying to get a small breath of air. so before we decide he is a jumper let us allow our god to decide what he was,  AS FOR MOST OF HERE IN EASTERN KY MR. HERNANDEZ HE IS A HERO IN OUR MINDS.  so I will leave this to all who want to take the time to read thank you and please in your prayers remember those as often as u can and also pray for our military thank you all

This is the real truth, the true hero printed in thousands of papers and painted vividly into the minds of every American who sees the photo of The Falling Man.

I did not know you, but my eyes are as full of tears as if I did. God bless you.

I did not know Norberto, but he showed us the real truth of 9/11, the truth that he had to jump because it was so bad in the towers! I don't know you, Norberto, and I might never see him, but I love you. You will be remembered as a hero. R.I.P. xxxx

I just finished watching a documentary in class on the story of the falling man.... I could not believe how touching this story really was.... At first I wasn't sure who the falling man was, then when I heard the family's story, I realised it was not Norberto.... When I heard the family's cry to clear their father's name of the falling man, I knew that it was not him.... I don't believe that we should want to know who this man is.... Let it live on in peace. It is painful enough to know that a loved one was hurt in such a painful way, let alone knowing how they died.... Let it be.... My respects to the Hernandez family.

Dear Norberto and family,

I'm soo sorry for what happened. Every time I hear about the 9/11 incident, I cry.... Even though I didn't know you, your story is crucial to my heart.... R.I.P., and may god be with you.

I just watched a documentary on 9/11 this evening and saw your husband/father, Norberto Hernandez. I heard one of the daughters saying that his memory was horrific for the family as it was portrayed because of their beliefs. PLEASE, God knows what was in his heart and knows this was his act to try and save himself. God was with him and knew his desperation. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU AND BE IN PEACE, it showed a VERY BRAVE man.

I saw "The Falling Man" and immediately did a search online for info about Norberto and 9/11. My prayers are with your family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

I watched the falling man documentary. I can't even imagine what it must be like to lose someone so dear to you. My thoughts are with you, and may his memory live on in all of your hearts. xxxx

Rest in peace, Hernando. May the angels of heaven lift you, and may God bring rest to your soul.

All my thoughts and prayers to the Hernandez family. You are strong.

Rest in Peace Norberto, and may god bless your soul.

Whoever this person may be, he is the strongest and bravest I have ever seen. Their was once a great saying in history, which was: "the noble die by their own hands" and also "the brave man takes his own life, before death (the enemy) takes it from him". I believe them both. This man did not run from death but faced it and conquered it, forever remaining in our history books as "the Falling Man". Peace with his soul and rest, along with those who loved and knew him. A noble strong man who chose to die by his own hand than that of murderers. A true person, who will be rewarded for his brave acts, BY LIVING FOREVER IN WHAT HE HAS DONE. He has gained eternal life. May his name be forever known as strong and brave. Remember it is not the person who is remembered after they are gone, but the things they did to be remembered. Brave, very brave, man.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site.
