United Nation Under God Indivisible for which it stand One Nation
Under Godfor Liberty and Justis for all. We should not allow ourselves
to doubt, and dishonor our Flag; our Constitution, and the Freedoms

Country. We are the United States of America, we are the Greatest
Nation in the World. And as such we will do what it takes to hold

I am Alisia from California. All I can really say is WOW...and Thank
You. I am not in any branch of the military, nor do I know anyone
in it, however I got to this site by way of a radio commercial indicating
that I can show my support thru email and I thought I would check
it out. All of the things that have been going on in the past few
days and weeks have just horrified me, but on the flip side of that
it has made me very proud to be an American. Yes, I know that before
the attacks I too was in this comfortable state of life. Now, my
world has been changed and I realize the importance of what I have
and am now realizing what it means to be a United States Citizen
and an American. I will not hide or be afraid as I will not let
them win. I will show my pride in the colors of my Country, I will
wear red, white and blue, I will fly my flag high and proud with
dignity for it will give! us all strength. Rob, Thank You for what
you have done here with this video. I would like to help, I'm not
really sure how or even what I am offering, but I think that this
needs to be shown always. Again, great job and drop me a line, I
would like to help get this across our great nation.

I have held my tears, almost afraid to breathe. While others have
mourned, I have steeled my heart for what is yet to come. But I
must say that watching this video has brought about more emotion
than anyone could ever imagine. Thank you, and thank everyone who
protects us, helps to keep us safe, and keeps our Liberty Free.

truly speechless. I must say to you.....Thank you. I was so moved
after seeing your tribute. The most outstanding common factor was
the genuine sorrow and concern conveyed between family, friends,
co-workers and strangers. I wish, like so many others, that I could
express my feelings of sorrow to the families of those who have
lost their lives. You have done an outstanding job of doing this
and I commend you for a job well done. God bless you and keep you
safe. God bless this beautiful planet and all that lives upon it.
Thank you again.

you for that incredible music pictorial in memory of our national

was very touching.

September 11, 2001 was in the eyes of all people who value life and
freedon, a horrible tragity. Most people after watching it happen
were without words, many cried, many were left with bitterness and
It is the spirit of America, our fallen Hero's, our Leaders, and many
unspoken acts of patriotism that will guide us in this time of need
to gather ourselves and become stronger.
I truely believe we have shown strength already, and it is
through men like yourself that we have been able to express it. You
are a true patriot because you have put your wonderful talent to use
for that in which you believe. May God bless you, May God bless those
who believe in what America stands for, and May God bless America.
you for a wonderful moment! It is incredible how strong we really
As a member of the United States Army, I greatly applaud you for
your efforts in getting your very personal and patriotic message
out. Like most of the other service members, I joined the military
to do SOMETHING better for my family and country. Unfortunately,
it is only now that people are starting to undersand the deep feelings
that I have everyday when I salute the flag and pay the respect
deserved to the flag and my fellow service members. It is amazing
the support and concern that I have gotten from eveyone that I have
met recently. I also grew up being a firefighters daughter. It breaks
my heart that it took all of this horror for many people to stand
up and take notice of what these couragous men and woman deal with
on a daily basis. Thank you again for putting your message out there.
God bless America and together we stand as ONE.

like to thank you, and all of the other people who made the movies.
It gives me the strength and the courage to get through my days.
I am a military spouse, my husband is gone to parts unknown, for
the first time in the 11 years we've been together, I cannot talk
to him. Your movie, and the others on the tribute site, have really
helped me put into perspective the reason for the mission. I thank
you from the bottom of my heart.

wanted to say that your website http://126.96.36.199/misc/america.htm
was wonderful. Thank you for the time you put into it and the words
of hope you pass with it..... THANK YOU!
What an incredible website you've created! As I've viewed it (several
times now), I can't help but think how very proud I am to have you
as one of the recipients of Bobby's Memorial Scholarship a few years
back. The spirit behind that scholarship is the boy who inspired
the following words: "Imagine, if you will, the effect...if
we all incorporate in our lives a little more humility, a concern
for fellow man, a pledge to further develop the potential of our
individual talents, and a commitment to decency! If, indeed, we
wish to memorialize [Bob], let us start by being motivated by the
beautiful qualities this fine young man shared with us: there could
be no more fitting tribute to his memory."
you so much for taking those words seriously--for using your talents
and your sensitivity on behalf of those who are hurting...on behalf
of those who gave their very lives...on behalf of those of us who
need a place to come together for support and inspiration...on behalf
of our country and all just and freedom-loving people throughout
of the world. You have more than fulfilled the intent of this scholarship
in memory of one 17 year-old boy who loved art...one Eagle Scout
who loved his family and country. We who know you and have watched
you grow into the fine man you have become are in awe and very grateful.
all the loved ones and brave people who were taken from us in the
September 11 atrocity--and the tremendous inspiration we can take
from the quality and heroism of the lives they led, however brief.
May we all, with God's help, recommit ourself to the values of compassion.
courage, decency, and commitment to society which lie at the heart
of our beautiful country. God Bless America! And God Bless you,
after watching the streamline video and the music that accompanied
it. For me, it helped bring many emotions embezzled deep in my soul.
Like others I am sure, it takes "stirring of emotions"
to heal. Your talent will help heal America.
like to thank you again for showing us your patriotism through this
magnificent piece of work. You truly stand tall and guide many of
us into renewing our faith and loyalty to America....the land of

done at that. I was wondering if you would be interested in exchanging
links with us. You can link to either http://www.AmericanDisaster.com.

work has touched us all here at the United States Air Force Academy.
I have never seen such a change in the personalities of my fellow
cadets as I did after your link passed silently through the network
to all or our computers. The pride in being an American is stronger
than I have ever seen, or ever imagined our nation could unite.
I personally was deeply inspired and reminded of the reason I have
chosen to serve this great nation. Thank you so much.

moving tribute... previous posters have said all I could say. We're
buying US flags here in Australia too.
Ever thought of using Samuel Barbers 'Adagio for Strings' in any
future projects? It is the most hauntingly beautiful piece of music
and what's more, it's American.
very moving movie clip, Thank you for doing it. This country is
to remain free.

say...thank you. Well done, well said.
My hubby just sent me the link to this movie, and I wanted to thank
you for such an inspiring and empowering set of imagery. The images
of that day have been burned into my brain, but to see them in a
way that brings all of us together, and healing, means alot to me.
Warm Thanks and Brightest Blessings,
eyes were on the sky
Many people stared and then began to cry
As they watched in great horror
The tears came with great sorrow
Our world was changing before our eyes
No one could stop looking up to the sky
Lord help us What is this we all see
The planes the crash the fires could this be
Not in our country Not in the USA
This is what the American people do say
How can this be what went wrong
Our country is free we are strong
We are puzzled confused But we have courage
We will survive we will flourish
We will show the world we will not fall
Togethe we stand one and all
This is the day we are united as one

I just saw your great video, and read the responses. All were very
moving. I was in Pakistan on Sept. 11, that's where I live and work.
I only have a radio, but went next door to see BBC after hearing
one sentence on the radio, that a plane had hit one tower of the
WTC. I saw the second plane hit on live TV, and just sat there stunned,
in tears. There was only one other American around, so the folks
actually around me didn't quite understand the depth of my pain
as I watched. But in less than 2 weeks every one of us had had to
evacuate out of the country, away from our homes and the international
school we work at, so the others came more and more to understand
the profound effects of that terrible day. I am writing this to
say to you and anyone else who reads this: despite what the media
portrays to us, the people of Pakistan were shocked and appalled
at the terrorist action. Some of them, it is true, support the Taliban
and so are not sympathetic to America, but I never talked to a single
Pakistani who thought it was right to bomb a building full of civilians
like that, and most of them were horrified and begged me to tell
people of their sorrow over the event and their desire to stop terrorism,
wherever it may be found. Just as there are racists in America,
yet they do not represent America, so there are Taliban supporters
in Pakistan, yet they do not represent it. As we mourn for our country
and come together to pray for it, please pray that Pakistan will
also experience unity, and not go the way of neighboring Afghanistan,
shattered by civil war and with thousands starving.--Nancy, now
I can't tell you how impressed I was by your flash movie. The combination
of picture and music is as moving as anything I have ever seen.
Thank you for expressing so well the spirit of America following
As one with a long military history in my family, I have always
felt a very deep love for this country and was often saddened by
the lack of it displayed in some people who just seemed to take
it for granted; but now for many, including myself, things have
changed. I feel a greater sense of love and pride than ever before,
and I see it in so many others as well. There are times I feel my
heart will burst as I drive through my neighborhood and on the highways
through town and see flags on almost every house and building. President
Theodore Roosevelt once said that "There is no room in the
United States for hyphenated Americanism," and I think we see
that lived everywhere, every day. May that never change!
God bless you, God bless all of our leaders as they guide us through
this time and beyond, and God bless America!
I am teacher and an eleven year old boy in my class told me to watch
your movie. I opened it, and again so many feelings overtook me
as my heart rolled down my cheeks again. Australia and in particlular
its youth, turns to America as its mentor, its example, a 'big-brother'.
Watching your sight showed me what an awesome influence you and
your countrymen are. We share your hero's, your courage, your pride,
your tears. Our hearts, our children's hearts, are with you. The
world of freedom is with you all. Peace and Courage be in your hearts.
I would be honoured if you placed this with your messages.
your movie is the epitomy of what all humans should have felt. Thanks
so much for your time and effort. Also I should let you know that
the US gov is archiving sites
and I suggested yours. Hope you dont' mind. I just feel it's so
up your flash skills they're incredible, one day I'll get the hang
of all that.
