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
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.
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...
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
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.
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.
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

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.
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!
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
WE LOVE YOU
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.
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.

web site was posted by a U.S. Marine, on www.military.com 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!
so much for this piece...so very moving and true. May God bless
you and keep you.
- 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
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...
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.
stay strong. Lady Liberty rules!!
Julie and Amanda
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!
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??
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
work is inspirational, motivational and healing for all of us still
hurting from the terrible events of that day. Keep up all your good
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
Dave, a cop in the midwest
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.
GOD BLESS THE USA
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
God Bless You and thanks for uplifting my spirit,
Saint Petersburg, Florida
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!!!!
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
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.
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.
for your time and effort on the movie. It is appreciated.
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.
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.
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.
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.
up the good work and God Bless!

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