This week, to commemorate the 13th anniversary of September 11, Esquire has put an expanded version of its National Magazine Award nominated feature “The Falling Man” behind a paywall and plans to donate all resulting revenue to a scholarship fund set up in honor of James Foley, the American journalist executed by ISIS terrorists last month.
