Gidday Sir,

Not only America has been shocked by this vile act but all the free world has and we here in Sydney are deeply distreesed by what has happenned to our friends in the States.

I have viewed your testimony and your inspiration to your countryment has touched me deeply.

I can not tell you how affected by all this I have become and how patriotic I have become also .I am so sorry that an event like this has to happen to change our way of thinking.

We have not been touched by terrorists as you have in the States but that does not diminish the magnitude and scale of what has happenned.

Thank you for your inspiration

Best Regards

Dear Rob;

I saw a link on the newyork.com website for your flash movie. I clicked and was very moved by your presentation. I think that you have done an outstanding job of encouraging people to pick up their shattered lives and believe that America will prevail.

Efforts like yours are very moving. I myself have some missing friends, and my friends in NYC are all affected by missing loved ones, neighbours, etc. In these times, people need every bit of encouragement they can get. We are spending our time donating money, goods and blood to help the survivors and families of the missing.

I was inspired by your movie, and I just wanted to say thanks for your movie and I've forwarded your url to some other friends with an inspirational note.


Thanks and Best Regards,

Simon

This is great and it gives hope for everyone

Hallo Rob, vielen Dank für die schönen Bilder. Wiedereinmal, wie so oft in diesen Tagen kamen mir die Tränen. Bis heute kann ich es nicht fassen, was da am 11.September passiert ist. Ich kann mich kaum auf meinen Job und die täglichen Aufgaben konzentrieren. Der Fernseher läuft fast 20 Stunden am Tag. Täglich schaue ich auf die newyork.com um etwas Neues zu erfahren. Hier habe ich das Gefühl den New Yorkern und Amerikanern etwas näher zu sein. Heute fand ich den Hinweis auf Deine Seite und freue mich, dass ich sie angeschaut habe. Viele empfinden so wie Du und ich. Das wird bleiben !! Die Terroristen haben sich verrechnet, die Welt geht gestärkt daraus hervor und rückt eng zusammen.

(Hello Rob, thank you for the beautiful pictures. in these days for me the tears like so often came. Until today I cannot seize it, which occurred there on 11-September. I can hardly concentrate on my job and the daily functions. The television runs almost 20 hours on the day daily looks I on newyork.com around something new to experience. Here I have to be somewhat closer the feeling that new Yorkern and Americans. Today I found the note to your page and am pleased that I had looked at her. Many feel as you and I. That will remain!! The terrorists billed themselves, the world come out strengthened from it and move closely together.
Kirsten from Hamburg/Germany )


I am sitting here crying at the beautiful pictures you put on your site. This was wonderful. They really should show it on tv. Thanks for giving me strength to try to put my life back together. This was the most horrible thing I have ever witnessed. My family, like everyone else in the nation is devastated. I will keep praying. God Bless America.

Just wanted you to know the page is OUTSTANDING, I am sending a link around. And yes, I contributed. Allow me to share with you something I wrote last night, I hope you enjoy.


Unsung Heroes

Amidst the pile of rubble he stood, his pain so very deep
Trying to make sense, if at all he could
Out of the smoldering heap

Time was of the essence, the victims couldn't wait
How could such devastation be wrought
By those who chose to hate?

As sadness and anger took it's hold, he knew full well the cost
Yet he buried himself in the task at hand
So many lives already lost

Pillars of smoke rose high and thick, as the mighty towers fell
Was he still on American soil?
Or was he now in Hell?

A flag was soon erected, as heads were gravely bowed
One, this day, in pain and prayer
Justice, we have vowed

Silently, he wiped a tear, and shouted toward the sky
"Although we may be heartbroken....
Our spirit will never die!!"

And then he looked around him, in amazement and utter shock
Although the hours were still untold
They'd work around the clock

From all walks of life they came, without hesitation to answer the call
And he stood and quietly saluted the crowd
Unsung heroes...one and all

hey rob,
i am in sincere awe at what you have constructed. You have created such an inspirational collection of the heartbreaking events that have been done to us....but more importantly you, perhaps unkowingly, have pulled together the unity in which our country needs in order to survive. It is unfortunate that what happened on September 11, 2001 is what's bringing America together...but it's extremely comforting to know that whoever we are and whatever happens, WE stand united, strong, and proud in our leaders and in ourselves...

I just wanted to thank you for creating such a wonderful work of art to express what America is all about. It really struck a chord in my heart because my father is a paramedic. He is also a volunteer firefighter. To see the pain in his eyes because he is one of the few people in this country who really understands what it means to lose a fellow worker, not to mention many; that is something I wish I never would have to see in any emergency service providers eyes. The most heroic thing, though, is the way he and others at this time value their job more than any other. Watching programs such as 60 Minutes, all these rescue workers are saying that this doesn't make them want to quit. It makes them want to work harder than ever before. My father is one of them. More than anything, he wishes he could be there right now. My family is in the Midwest, but he knows a couple of firefighters in New York, and they are still missing. This has affected everyone, and your video does a wonderful job of expressing American's emotions. I can no longer sing the "Star Spangled Banner" without tears coming from my eyes. "God Bless the USA" was something I could not finish playing in band the other day, for I was crying for lives lost, for the damage done, but more for the thankfulness that the country I live in is America, land of opportunity and freedom. Thank you so much.

P.S.-I don't know if you were wanting to expand your site, but if so I think the poem below would be appropriate. Unfortunately, I do not know the author. Thanks!

The Fireman's Prayer

When I am called to duty, God,
wherever flames may rage,
give me the strength to save some life
whatever be its age.
Help me embrace a little child
before it is too late.
or save an older person
from the horror of that fate.
Enable me to be alert
and hear the weakest shout
quickly and efficiently
to put the fire out.
I want to fill my calling
and to give the best in me
to guard my every neighbor
and protect his property.
And if according to you will I have
to lose my life, please bless with
your protecting hand my children
and my wife.

Dear Rob,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this presentation. My nephew in Denver sent it to me - it is beautiful - gave me chills of connection.

In addition to forwarding it to all my friends and associates, I hope that you don't mind that I took the liberty of sending it to the local news media too.

LOVE and LIGHT to you Dear Rob and THANK YOU,

I am making a personal journal of all the events and happenings of the past week. I will someday use this journal to educate students as I will become a history teacher. As a matter of fact, I was in one of the candlelight vigils in that slideshow here at Mary Washington College. Thanks,

Dear Rob,

I was very impressed after watching your flash movie. It demonstrates that terror and evil will never win as long as the world stands together.

I am from Berlin, Germany and I would like to tell you and the american people that Germany supports you with all it's got.

On Friday, Sept. 14th more than 200.000 people gathered at the Brandenburg Gate, Berlin's symbol for freedom and understanding to share their feelings of sadness.

In the last few weeks, the world moved closer together, leaving them who support terrorism outside.

Guido

Hi there,

Just happened across your site and I am deeply moved ! I am a South African so am physically far removed from all this heartache. My heart, however, goes out to all people that have suffered inconceivable pain and anguish. The world, I think, feels the same.

Well done for brining perhaps some hope to the people of America.

Regards,

Lauren
