Excellent flash-movie you created. There are lots of sad-flash...but yours is very uplifting and moving...great job!

I am a member of the Union County Police and Fire Pipes & Drums...a pipe band comprised of police officers and fire-fighters. Union Co N.J. is 10 minutes from Lower Manhattan and many of us responded on 9-11.

We were wondering, with your permission, to use your flash movie on our band web-site in a memorial section for 9-11. Any response would be appreciated...

Thank you,

Many months have passed since September 11th, but no matter how much time passes I will never forget. Your video is amazing. I have it saved on my computer and replay it often. It a true testimony of what America is all about. You've made something truly wonderful, and I hope you are proud. Thank you for being such a help to so many hurting Americans, especially myself. God Bless...

Thank you again,

Goodness, if you felt my heart pounding against my chest you would understand the way I feel; the knot in my throat makes it difficult to speak and the tears in my eyes make it harder to see. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for reminding me of what this country stands for. Thank you brother for such a wonderful gift, thank you for reminding me that NO ONE can take away the one thing our country has fought for FREEDOM. . . . .

Rob! You have done an absolutely wonderful job!! How wonderful it is to feel the spirit that comes from this film. I am a Grief Counselor in Salt Lake City, UT and working on putting together a program for 9/11/02. Nothing has inspired me like your film. Congratulations!! Chelsea Whitney SLC,UT

Dear Sir,
That side show was very moving. I really enjoyed this and hope to see more of them. You did an outstanding job creating a very patriotic tribute from a truly terrible tragedy. I have passed it to several of my friends at church, and they all agree that is a truly wonderful piece. Keep up the good work.

Hi Rob,
Your movie was great! It made me cry and that is a good thing. I am a member of Scoastee United Methodist Church, we are having memorial service on September 8, 2002 to honor of all the lives lost from 9/11. I would love to show it on that day.

Between the field where the flag is planted there are 9+ miles of flower fields that go all the way to the Ocean. The flowers are grown by seed companies. It's a beautiful place close to Vandenberg AFB . Checkout the dimensions of the flag. The 2002 Floral Flag is 740 feet long and 390 feet wide And maintains the proper Flag dimensions as described in Executive Order #10834. This Flag is 6.65 acres and is the first Floral Flag to be planted with 5 pointed Stars comprised of White Larkspur. Each Star is 24 feet in diameter; Each Stripe is 30 feet wide. This Flag is estimated to contain more than 400,000 Larkspur plants with 4-5 flower stems each for a total of more than 2 million flowers. You can drive by this flag on V Street south of Ocean Ave. in Lompoc, CA
I was there. Thank you for your very moving tribute to America.

They don't win. We win.

Is there any way to purchase your video to use in a 911 remembrance service?

Sharon Fields

great job on the video
You really expressed the determination we feel as a nation NOT to let
the terroists defeat us!

I was wondering if there is any way to download your trade tower program? I would like to use it in a special service at our church.

I am a Navy Chaplain and would like to obtain a copy of the slideshow "God
bless the United States of America" which I viewed on the following website: I would be grateful if you would
respond to this email and provide me the information I need to acquire a
copy. Thank you and God bless.

Chaplain Bill Appleton

Not really sure why it took me so long to e-mail you, but I'm glad I finally did. Your "America Triumphant" website is outstanding - I can tell how much work went into designing it. However long it did take, you did an incredible job. My question to you is, is there anyway for me to download your video to my computer? I don't know if you plan on leaving America Triumphant as an active website forever, and I would hate to not see the video. Thanks, Rob, and again, excellent job. You brought out the patriotism in a lot of people with your work.

This was a great tragedy, Some may have lost but in the end this has brought America together. we all feel the pain even though some of us who were not there, that didn't loose family and friends. We all still pray every night hoping that this will never happen again. thank you to all the heroes before and after September 11.2001. We stand strong from know on. Binladen you need to watch your back cause the USA is coming for you, and we don't run.

united we stand now and forever

How can we get the slide show from your website to use as a part of tribute
to 9/11 victims at the El Paso Veterans Affairs Health Care Center, El Paso,
Texas. The use would be limited to the event.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

Dear Rob-
Thank you so much for sending a copy of your movie, but thank you more for taking the time to write me an e-mail. I imagine that you received a ton of e-mail right after September 11th in regards to your movie- responding to all of them must have been some task. There were so many video tributes put together after that terrible day - I saw ones including music from Enya, REM, Creed - but yours jumped out at me a hell of a lot more than all of the other ones. Maybe it was because I am big Crimson Tide fan, but I think more so because, although these other tributes were good, yours was done in such a professional, classy, respectful manner that brought out such a level of patriotism that I did not get from any of those others.

I don't know how much you were affected by the events of September 11th. If you lost a loved one or a dear friend, then my heart definitley goes out to you. I work at my family's funeral home on Long Island and I am also a volunteer firefighter from my hometown, so I have dealt with a lot of memorial services as a result of the attacks as well as losing a friend who was a city fireman.

Again, I just wanted to thank you again for creating a stunning video tribute to remember one of the darkest days in our history, and I do appreciate you taking the time to respond to my email and passing along your masterpiece. Feel free to respond, I understand if you are too busy. Again thank you, take care, and God Bless.
-Eric Buehler

Can you send me a copy of your video file? I want to play it at our chapel
services at Freed-Hardeman University on 9/11. Thanks in advance.

The movie gave me goosebumps. It would touch a lot of hearts
I just thought i would tell you alittle story.........My brother died in the 911 and he left behind a 2year old daughter. There is not day that goes by that dont hurt. I really appreciate what you have done with this video clipping but please keep in mind that not only were the firefighters and police heros we all are... We lived there battle and survived their pieces of SH**. But also keep in mind that on that day and throughout the months we all pitched in to help find whatever survivors was left..

Thank You
Michelle Ruiz
