My name is John Desselle, living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Boy, what a way to wake up Sept. 11 for work to turn on the TV and see all that. I have gotten so very tired of seeing the same things on TV, the same photos on the internet and being sent the same things via E-Mail.

Your video presentation really captures most of this situation. The sorrow, bravery, coming together, strength, fear, courage, chrisiama (SP?), patroticness (is that a word?)

I am so glad you put this together.

If you make CD's for sale, pleas let me know. I would want to help keep your site up as long as it takes for everyone to view.


great work. it's a really amazing piece. i'm sure you must be getting flooded with e-mail like this, but i had to put my two cents in two. i'd love to get a copy on cd if possible. just let me know how much it would be.

thanks from hawaii...

Hi Rob
Your movie was excellent. I live in Amherstburg, Ontario, Canada, which is across the Detroit River from Detroit, MI. Being that we are so close to the US here, we are so deeply affected by this disgusting attack on innocent human life, as well as the fundamental basis of the United States - freedom. Everywhere I go in and around my little home town of 20,000 people, there are fundraisers, firemens' boots to collect donations, blood drives, you name it...anything to help our extended family. I have lost count of how much I personally have donated, but it can never ever be enough. Our local newspaper, The Windsor Star, ran a full color, full page print of the American Flag last Saturday, and I can't count how many homes have it hanging in their front window, including mine, in support of the US. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers and that we will stand behind you every step of the way. God Bless the United States of America.

Dear Mr. Kamphausen,

Your effort is appreciated. I don't really understand how the host thing works, but I do agree that $600 is well over most people budget. I would be willing to receive a copy that I could save and share with others for $10. I don't know how you'd collect the money. Maybe I could mail it to you and you could email me a copy. It's a short movie, but your effort is appreciated and the fact that you would donate any surplus to the Red Cross motivates me to say it's worth a minimum of $10. Let me know what you decide. And thanks for your thoughtful reflections. America IS beautiful! And Americans are tender, thoughtful, generous caring people, like you.


If you make a cd of this I will take several. I have a brother in the special forces and a nephew in the army in New York.

You did a wonderful job. If the decision to make this cd either email me or make a post and I will put my order right in.

Regarding your web sight, I fully understand. I myself have just shopped around for an affordable web host so that I can post my "American Tribute" website. I know the costs that are involved. Have you approached any of the major web hosts (i.e. Verio) to see if they would cut you some slack especially regarding the fact that they would be supporting something that America really needs? Also too, I would be willing to pay up to $20.00 for you to put the Flash on CD.

I was very inspired by your e-mail slide presentation of the recent events that occurred in our country. Your presentation eloquently expressed the many emotions and feelings that our nation is going through, which is almost impossible to put into words. I, like many others, am sending this to all of my family & friends and I know they too will be inspired by your slide presentation.
I would be interesting in obtaining a CD of your presentation if you decide to make one.

I just found your web tribute to our great country and want to say it is the BEST my family and I have had the pleasure to view since the tragic 9-11-01. I wish you would provide a copy to the major networks and have them share it with everyone. Great job! God Bless You!

thanks for what you have pruduced its beautiful altho it brings sorrow into all who watch it .its great God bless you and all your work may you find what you need

I just watched your very touching slideshow of the attacks on America. Having been a United States Marine for over 20 years, I am very upset by the recent events. I have always known that America is strong. I have always known the resolve that we possess. Only now, do I see the "coming together" of ALL Americans against this enemy we call terrorism. We do stand together, we will be strong, we will weather the storm, we will be successful.

I believe that President Bush has done exactly what he needed to do in this situation. He and his cabinet are strong, wise, and determined. We will come out of this tragedy a better America. I can say that I am here for my country when she needs me, as are all military members and their families. Maybe ALL Americans should remember that in the future when there is a question of whether the Armed Forces should get a pay increase. We are ALWAYS there. You may not see us, but we are.

God Bless America,
Semper Fidelis

Your web site was posted by a U.S. Marine, on and I just got finished watching your video. I must say, that of all the sites I have viewed since the September 11 tradgedy, this is really something special. I am a police officer in Florida, and I am trying to get information on a friend, who I went through the police academy with, who was NYPD in Manhattan, New York at the time this occurred. Of course, with everything going on, that is impossible right now, and I hope he is okay. I noticed your message about keeping the site going, and I would definately be interested in purchasing a CD to help you out. I will revisit the site in the hope that you will update us with your plans. This is an outstanding effort on your part and I will be sending this to all my friends. Thank You!


Thanks so much for this very moving and true. May God bless you and keep you.

rob - thank you for your inspiring site. many at my work in california have garnered goosebumps and shed a tear or two, a couple times after viewing it.


OMG!! that is absolutley wonderful.. I have been down to ground zero several time in the last 19 days and words cannot express what i have seen. Thank you so much fir doing this movie. If you decide to sell copies of it please let me know...


Absolutely wonderful job Rob! Very moving and inspiring to say the least. I hope you do get the chance to put this movie on CD as I am sure many would gladly purchase it.

We will stay strong. Lady Liberty rules!!

Thank you,
Julie and Amanda


You have done an excellent job! You should be very proud. Proud, but not broke!! Your message indicates that over 67,000 people have viewed your creation. If each had paid just a dollar to see it, imagine what you could be giving to the relief organizations now!

Maybe a CD is a good idea...and make it cheap. I say this because people who don't have much money will be able to buy it, and organizations can buy it by the hundreds! Maybe $5 a copy??

Think about it! And, if you decide to make CDs, please let me know, and I will be in line for one of them! Even if they don't cost just $5!

Your work is inspirational, motivational and healing for all of us still hurting from the terrible events of that day. Keep up all your good work!

God Bless you,

You have done an absolutely fantastic job on this movie. No matter how many times I watch this, the tears still well up in my eyes. Great job
Dave, a cop in the midwest

Hi Rob...I was wanting to if I could get a cd with your movie on it and what are you charging for a copy of it. I saw it today on your site and it simply brought tears to my eyes but yet gives you such a feeling of pride when you watch it..that you live here in this country
My fiance and I has a friend who is still missing He was at work on the 104th floor of tower one when the tragedy struck.

please let me know if I can purchase a cd with this movie on it. thanks



I just watched your tribute film and it was the most inspiring one of all I have viewed. Please keep me informed if you are oging to make cd's of it, whatever the cost. I do think your host should waive the fee and match it with a donation to the Red Cross or September 11th fund.

God Bless You and thanks for uplifting my spirit,

I just want to say that it was very moving. Our hearts goes out to everyone. No I my not have lost someone in the attack by my heart still hurts for everyone that did. My family is in law enforcement so yes in a way I did. but still I just want to say you did a great job! AND LET THE STARS AND STRIPES LIVE IN ALL OF US!!!!


Hi Rob: first of all I want to congratulate you on such a well done job.. this video is excellent and breathtaking indeed.. I was so moved by it, made me cry.. I like to suggest the following: why don't you make copies of this video and try to sell at a very low price.. also you could try to find dif. websites that would want to promote this video for you.. and also you could maybe charge a small fee like $1.00 to every person that looks at it.. hope that these suggestions will help you
thank you.
Bonnie Morrison

Dear Rob,

What a fantastic moving video.

Have you gotten any response on the sale of the CD? If so, how much are you selling them for? I'd hate to see this site go down, it should live on forever.


First of all, let me tell you how wonderful a job you did on the movie. It's inspirational and it truly captures the moment, the feeling, of the people of the U.S.

Thanks for your time and effort on the movie. It is appreciated.

That was the best movie clip I've seen! Great choice of music and great narration. It totally caught the spirit of our country at this time. Thanks for inspiring me.


It was an inspiration to us! To see what has happened in New York..... We can KNOW that GOOD will always overcome evil!!! Because GOD is on our side. We have sent it to eveyone we know.
Thanks Again
Ray, Donna, and Katie New

Thank you so much for your movie. I think what really made this such an inspiration to me was the music. What a great composition to choose. I cry every time I watch this.

Ever since this 9/11/01 tragedy has happened, I watch TV or read the newspaper or listen to the radio and I cry. I cry all the time for people I don't know. But in reality we are all family, friends, neighbors. I live in New York about 500 miles from where this happened and it has touched all of my families lives.

Keep up the good work and God Bless!

Dear rob,
I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Your wonderful movie has given me such a sense of pride in our country and all of our heroes! You have done our country justice. We will never forget September 11, 2001. You have made a wonderful contribution to this tragic time and have made me proud to be an American!! Please keep this movie on as long as is an inspiration to me and many others that I have sent it to.
God Bless the firefighters, the policemen, the paramedics, health workers and many volunteers!
God Bless New York!
God Bless our Brave Military!
God Bless our President!
God Bless America!


Thanks so much for helping to make my 8 and 4 year old know the patriotism I feel in my heart. They now have a great understanding of what it means to love our beautiful America; sacrifice and determination for a better day in the land of the free. Your film is an inspiration to us all, young and old. May God Bless you always.

Thank you for creating such an inspirational site. I hope many Americans will see this. I will make sure to pass this along.
