Favorite Quote:
Write benefits in marble and offenses in dust. ~Ben Franklin

It was a mile away from here
5,280 feet
1,760 steps
440 fourcounts
where she took that fatal jump
it was only 12 feet
9.8 meters per second squared
1.56 seconds
the rock was underwater
less than 2 feet
with probably only a density of 721 kilograms per meter cubed
and a current of 10 meters per second swirling over it
but what do the numbers matter,
when she's gone?
