bent, but we're not broken
Our hearts need time to mend
This pain along our journey
Has depth that sees no end
and all its corners
can't hide a coward's flight
The spirit of our country
Will avenge the ones who died
piles of dirt and rubble
Bodies, glass and stone
But they cannot kill our courage
We do not walk alone
a hole in New York City
Where grown men sit and cry
But Freedom's song still rings there
And Liberty's light still shines
bent but we're not broken
By hatred's fiery blast
But Patriot's dreams still rise
From what was once just ash
I would tell you what my 7 year old daughter had to say about the
attack on the WTC. Our girls go to Catholic school, so that will
give you a little insight into their thinking. At any rate, I asked
her what she thought about things... was anything bothering her....
" Mom, I know why bad things happen." I am driving along
thinking... okay.. what in the world will she say... She says "
God lets bad things happen so that we appreciate the good things
He does." I have been thinking about that statement a lot and
have been so amazed at her insight, as well as humbled by the thought.
Rob... I appreciate the good thing you did. It helped tremendously.
I was able to share it with my family as well as many other people
on my email list. I don't send much, but only things I think worthy
of the time it takes to see/read things.
to have a great experience with this movie. Continue to have the
creative insight you have, and continue to think about all the good
things we are given.
this is beautiful and made me teary eyed--again.
a cousin who is a state trooper in Virginia. He was on traffic duty
that morning and rushed to the Pentagon and helped to get people
out. He spent a week in the hospital after receiving smoke damage
to his lungs, esophagus, and throat. He'll be okay--one of the lucky
people just do not understand us Americans if they didn't realize
that this would pull us together, not make us weak. Thanks, Rob.
you for seeing how strong we really are! And Godd bless the United
States! Thank you for that movie you made. You made even a girl
in MS feel like I can accomplish anything during these times!
to thank you for your efforts. I found it to be moving, poient(sp?),
profound, I don't enough words to describe how it made me feel.
I am usually the quiet one, never say anything, never input my opinion,
but your movie move me, and I had to say Thank You for a job more
than well done. GOD BLESS YOU & YOURS. PEACE
Just wanted to let you know that I passed the movie on to many people
in many different areas and the response I have gotten back is UNBELIEVABLE!!!
Phone calls, emails, ims etc asking who the GENIUS is that made
it. So kudos to you and I will continue to pass it on and give out
your email so you can get the responses and see that your work did
not go unnoticed!!! GOD BLESS THE USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Blessings and Walk in Peace

I just watched the video that you made on the tragedy that happened
on Sept. 11. I would like to let you know that I think you did an
excellent job on the video and I am sure it has brought comfort
to many people who have watched it. It was very well done and the
pictures were very moving.
I am not an American but I think everyone has been touched by this
tragedy and everyone is feeling your countries pain. Watching your
video along with countless other videos from TV and the internet
has made everyone realize what a great country the United States
of America is and it is great to see that everyone is pulling together
and not letting this tragedy get the better of you.
Once again I just wanted to let you know that you did an excellent
job with the video and I hope lots of people buy it to support you
and the Red Cross.
My best friend sent your video to me by e-mail. I think it's about
the most beautiful thing that I have seen since this whole mess
started. I think that it's about time that we as a country start
coming together. I really think that it's very sad that it had to
take a disater such as this to make every one start being patriotic.
You just sumed everything up in you short video. It's great. I loved
it very much. May God bless us all!! Thank you for doing it. God
Bless our soldiers over there. May He keep them safe and return
to thier families soon. Thank you again!
URL was passed to me by a friend who works in Florida.... I live
in the UK and I have to say that this is one of the best... if not,
the best presentation I have seen. Very stirring and very patriotic.
Bravo. Well done... and thank you. As someone who has lived terrorism
in Africa, I am well aware of the feelings it can instil - kick
butt is a good way of getting things sorted and it does make you
feel better. Never give in to them. Never stay on the floor and
never turn your back on them. :-)
We're 14 and from England. Me and my friend watched your film and
found it very moving. We think it's excellent, but one thing, what
about the UK? We're helping quite a lot! But we still think it's a
good tribute to the lives lost, and it helps support people who have
lost loved ones and helped them to cope. Well Done.
Love Stacey and Georgina
Bravo! Right on!!! This is one of the few emails/web sites I've
saved. It's inspirational! Thank you.

them a domain to use as well as information about their foundation
on our site.
as member of the armed forces I would first like to thank you and
say God bless you for your effort and work. It is good to see that
we as Americans are coming together in this desperate hour and it

Pretty damn good. I would like to add these words to your site.
It was once said by Admiral Yamamoto; after the Pearl Harbor raid
that "We have not dealt a lethal blow to the enemy, we have
just woken a sleeping bear". Watch out; Terrorist of the world,
our teeth are long and jagged. Our claws can rip things to shreds.
Ask Sadam Hussein and if he were an honest man he would tell you
that he is in for one hell of a beating. Thank God I'm on the side
of right. I sure would hate to be on the receiving end of this one.

member of the US Air Force, I can't tell you the effect your video
had on me. Please send me all the information I need to order one.
so moved by your video "God Bless the Unites States of America".
As the Special Events Director the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
largest rehabilitation and long term care center, I am privileged
each year to salute our great nation and our nation's heroes during
our November 11 Veterans Day Tribute. This year, I am planning a
community-wide Celebration of the American Spirit. Would it be possible
to get a copy of this video to show on our Theater's large screen?
Thank you so much for your inspiration!
Chief, Community Resources Development
I LOVE your flash movie! It is things like this that will inspire
us and help heal us all. Please send info on getting the CD. I am
working on a Memorial/Tribute video for some of the guys in my local
fire department who lost fellow firefighters, and would like to
include some the images in your presentation. Do you think that
this is possible? I will send you a copy of the finished video if
you could provide me with video clips or JPEGS. I don't intend to
collect any money for this, however, if there is enough interest
locally, I will makes copies of the video and donate any money collected
to the NYC Firefighters Memorial Fund. Thanks, Keep up the great
is jonas wakelin's friend chris norris. I am in the 9th grade at
potomac senior high school with jonas... When he showed me this
for the first time a feeling of Patriotism came over me. I felt
as i had more confidence in our nation. Only a skilled individual
such as yourself would be able to create something so national recognized
that this movie had to bring a tear to everyone's eye. As we speak
this e-mail is being sent over the nation i have sent this to people
nation wide to email of people who have large email lists. I have
got a response from a person in indiana stating that the movie was
beautiful and this person now e-mailed it to all her relatives nation
wide. I will try to show this on the television at school. jonas
and I have decided to dedicate this whole movie to the people who
lost loves ones and the people who
have died trying to save ones that were crushed on ground zero.
We also dedicate the movie to it's creator; a dedicated american
who took his time to create this movie. As you might have thought
this movie is not a publicity stunt but a sign of compassion one
american has for his country. God Bless You....

We have developed a site, "thewallsonline.com" in hopes
of raising money for the families of the victims of the "Attack
On America", September 11, 2001. A CD was made to help raise
money. The song called "The Walls" is doing very well
in Maryland. Not only being played on radio stations, but sold in
different retail stores. Already a financial fund is established
and is growing. There will never be too much money to help these
families, to help send children to college. NO, this will not replace
those lost in this tragedy, but just try to make it a little easier
your help! We would like to take this wave from Maryland across
visit our page and let us know what you think. You can even listen
to a sample of one of our songs written for this tragedy. We have
set up a links page to get the word out of others trying to help.
so much for making me feel proud to be an American.

job - keep up the good work
like to thank you for making this web site its great!! a friend
of mines sent this to me in the mail & i will pass it on to
all of my friends !! it brought tears to my eyes, tears of strength,
pride, it made me feel Great in side, thank you so very much! i
think the whole world should see this web site & I hope many
people do see it. Thank you again & God Bless!
you for sharing the video with others. I was not having a very good
day today. Some days I am ok. I am strong and feel a sense of that
strength as I go about my day. Then there are times I have my moments.
I don't know what will trigger it. It can be something on the news.
A song hits me. It might be when I go in to say goodnight to my
five year old granddaughter to kneel by her bed and thank God for
the gift of her in my life. Or it might be something as simple as
watching The Waltons and I find myself in tears. I was having one
of the days that tears seemed to conquer till I looked at your video.
The sadness did touch me. The sense of strength and comfort came
to me stronger. We are one. We stand united. The Little Chapel That
Stood in New York City, a block from the center of the destruction
is a symbol my heart clings to. It was not touched. God is with
us. Your video gave me the lift in my spirits today to wipe my tears.
Thank you..and God Bless you. GOD BLESS AMERICA!!! Bets
Thank you so much for this beautiful tribute. You have touched a
chord in so many of us with your inspiring work.
it necassary to e-mail you and send you my gratitude. Your "movie"
was sent to me in an e-mail forward recently and I followed the
link and watched it. I was deeply moved. I too feel it is a shame
that it took an event as horrible and tragic as this to bring the
together. I would like to thank you for your unselfish motivation
behind making the video. There were and still are a lot of people
who needed that kind of inspiration and assurance. I am positive
you have brought peace to a lot of minds. With that said, I would
also like to add another note before I conclude this e-mail. Since
you have now started another page to show your feedback, I wanted
to touch on this. There have been numerous counts of hate crimes
against Muslims in America. It makes me sick to my stomach to see
each new report of it on the news. Although they have decreased
since the 11th of Sept., it is still happening. The only way this
is going to stop is if we show the nation as a whole that we are
against the terrorist and not a religion or race and stress to the
world that we are a better people than the narrow minded people
who commit these hate crimes. We will come out of the depression
the tragedy caused and we will come out as a stronger people and
it is people like you Rob who help us in that conquest. If there
were only more with your heart. Thank you again and God bless you.
Walk tomorrow with a smile on your face because you deserve it.
Cody O. Prater
very much touched by your flash movie as were so many other people.
Unfortunately the world has been greatly changed by these events.
Where as we took for granted so much of our every day lives, now
we are acutely aware of our every move. Fortunately though we have
also found that there is so much good in the people around us. We
have renewed faith in our neighbors and countrymen. God bless America,
God bless the World.
you for putting together that tribute to the American Spirit
