Subject: Freedom and love will win...

With the close of the 20th Century, the past evils that strike at the heart of humanity has been passed onto the 21st Century.

Man still possesses the same hatred that began since day one of the human race. The forces of evil are still around because Satan wants that. It is up to the free world to not allow him to win. Moreover, that, is something he will not accomplish because good is always victorious over evil.

September 11, 2001 will always be remembered. It will never fade into some black hole. The innocent souls are with God now. My prayers are with them and their families. Their deaths will not be in vain, justice will be served in the harshest way. Terrorism is a war against the world, the people, and this planet and against God. We are united and we will win against those that spew the blood of innocence.

As a co-author of Between Light and Dark, a book about abuse, disabilities and the harsh realities of life, the book sends a message that there is always hope, for now and the future.

The cowardly actions of these evil people that have been laid upon us, hope for a peaceful world now, and for the future, will overcome their actions and justice will prevail.

God bless all of you, the stolen innocence, the families of the victims from all over the world. I stand with you. You may have left us; however, you will never be forgotten.

I must also send thanks to the many people around the world that have displayed their sorrow with us. We love you all.

In addition, as a final note, I send my sincere thanks to the hero's that are doing what none of us wish to ever have to do. From the citizens on the ill fated plane that crashed in Pennsylvania, to the firefighters, the police officers and the numerous volunteers who are desperately trying to find survivors, I am with you and God certainly is blessing you as well. You are my hero's.

What a great idea! I have one addition I'd put in... I'd have him listen to "God Bless America" over and over and over and over and .... well, you get the idea!

Replying to:

I think we should all work for JUSTICE for our pal Osama.

I'm defining justice as: something like that portrayed in A CLOCKWORK ORANGE...let's put him in a room surrounded on all sides (wall, ceiling, floor) by the live video we've been watching this week of the FACES OF THOSE PEOPLE CRYING FOR THEIR LOVES ONES.

Every fifteen minutes or so, let's intercut that with shots from the morgue. And shots of forensic scientists holding small pieces of what used to be people up to their microscopes...

Then, on the anniversary of 9-11, let's put ole Osama in one of those clear plastic balls that people buy for hamsters to roll around the living room floor. Let's let all of the families of victims get to "interact" with him for an hour...

Then back to his cell and the live video of people screaming.

And one final thing: let's take real, real, real good care of him, so he lives a long time.

In agony

For the past several days I have sat in my living room scanning from one news station to the next. I am not unlike most of the people of the world in that aspect. I have seen the images of what took place and is still taking place over and over again, yet it still seems unreal to me. I can not believe my own eyes. I am usually a person who is never at a loss for words, yet I feel I have nothing to say. There are no words to describe how I feel. All I have are the tears in my eyes and the pain in my heart. Some day the words will come...but they will not take the place of the tears and pain...they will never go away.

God Bless Us All.

I do agree that ANYONE who is behaving suspiciously or is obviously breaking the law should be reported to the authorities. But I do not believe that you can single out Moslem people alone. Terrorism is against the Moslem faith which teaches that all men are brothers. What Bin Ladin did was not the act of a true Moslem. I am a Jew and I can say this.

We must not become a nation and a world of haters. If we do, then the terrorists won. I love all my Moslem brothers and sisters. I would never know how to look a Moslem child in the face and explain to their innocent eyes how I hated them just because they are Moslem. I could never do this.

For the children, for ALL our children, please don't hate. Love justice. Seek justice for what happened on September 11 at the World Trade Towers. But please don't hate.

Don't let the terrorists win.

I agree completely with you. We must not punish innocent Muslim people due to the stupidity of these fanatics.

We must go to war. I support our President 100 per cent. But we must only punish the people who initiated this attack and those who hide them. NOT innocent people. That is what makes America great, remember, we did not blame all Germans for the insanity of the few.

I never knew what it was to really be an American until the morning that changed my life forever.
The early morning of Sept 11th,2001.
A call from a family member in Manhattan saying there had been an explosion.
Was my wake up call that day.

I watched in horror!
As I went to pick up my eight year old son from school panic had struck so many mothers.
I grabbed them by the shoulders, I challenged them to have courage and faith.

That one act must have planted the seed in my own heart to be strong.
For that moment I knew, that I too was part of the land of our fathers.
The spirit of them lived once again in us all that day.
The spirit that cries...
Home of the free and land of the brave.

I am so proud beyond words to be an American.
My heart goes out to the thousands of families that have lost loved ones now, and in the past through the hands of mad men.

I am also blown away by the thousands of men and women, who have risked their own lives to help try and save those in such grave peril.
For the amazing out pouring of love and support, by all our people through out this great nation of ours!

We will not be destroyed!!!>>>>>
For a house divided against it self falls.
We are a people united, through God we believe in liberty and justice for all.

God will heal our lands as we seek His face.
God has, and always has been the head of the USA!!!
His hand of love will guide us, lead us, and protect us in the days, months and years to follow.
Your loved ones are safe in the arms of love and you shall meet them again one day.
This is not goodbye but see you later!!

Now is the time for us all to put aside the pettiness that kept us divided, and together lets help make America beautiful and strong from sea to shining sea!!!
God bless our world.
May peace love and freedom ring forever!!!

Subject: From a Survivor of Terrorist Hijacking- Black September 1970

I survived the terrible hijacking by terrorists in the middle east in September 1970 and was one of those who were considered 'prisoners of war' and thus endured and survived the Jordanian civil war. Our rallying cry they was "We are Americans and will stick together and prevail". It is 31 years later and the root causes of the major problems in that part of the world still have not been eliminated. There were radical elements then that did not want to solve problems by negotiation and other peaceful means. There are even more radical fanatics operating today, as we have just seen. The free world must not allow the small numbers of these people to intimidate us. We must use reason , be patient and steadfast , and come together - not only to punish the few terrorists and their leaders and helpers- but to make sure this time that the root causes are adressed. God Bless America and All the Freedom Loving Peoples of the World.

I would like to say not only to my family back in Philadelphia but to all my fellow Americans back home that the anxiety, the fears, the anger and the sadness at this needless loss of human life has touched me like no moment in my own personal history has. Images do not normally bring tears to my eyes or a lump to my throat, however, I became quite ckoked up the other day when a picture from a New York newspaper showed the American Flag, hoisted up high by three New York firefighters amid a backdrop of debri and rubble that was once the twin towers! It seemed as if one was witnessing America being born again!

Hi -

I created a t-shirt design for my site, My Dog Murphy's T-shirts and Gifts, and am giving the profits to the Red Cross. I'd love it if you would take a look at and see the shirt. We've already raised more than $100 in less than 48 hours.

I am not allowed to give blood, and the Red Cross is actually turning away volunteers, so I figured this was the least I could do.

God bless,

This is a wonderful gesture on your part. I heard of a lady who just set up a stand on a street corner in New York and raised over $7,000 for the families of the New York victims.

But she also had ID from the Social Services Agency that licenses people to collect for a charity. If you are collecting for a charity, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE contact the Red Cross or the city/county agency in your area that is in charge of that sort of thing so you can also get certified.

They already announced on TV that the FBI would investigate all solicitations made on behalf of the victims of the WTC terrorism and if the person is not properly certified to collect for charity they could face legal troubles.

DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN TO YOU. Please take care, okay?

Subject: cancer of societies

I share the deep sorrow of the great American people and believe that good will prevail over evil in the end.

Terrorism is the cancer of our societies and there are no such thing as "good = benign" and "bad = malignant" terrorist.

But many "civilized" European governments used to see terrorists, some of them at least, as "freedom fighters" and even supported them.

I would like to cite German governments in the first place, that have been giving political and financial support to the Turkish "Islamic" extremists in their country for years ! These groups aim to topple the Western-oriented, secular Turkish Republic and build a religious state like the one in Iran and Afghanistan ! And we should not forget the PKK which killed thousands of innocent people, both Kurds and Turks, during the last 10 years or so in Turkey. A lot of European governments, Germany at the top of the list, have been and continue to be the principal supporters of these bloody bandits!

And make no mistake, Osama Bin Laden was trained and used by CIA in an effort to weaken the former Soviet Union !

So folks, let us change our minds and not differentiate between terrorists any more !

Terrorist is terrorist, no matter which nation or ethnic group or religion he or she may belong to!

God bless the USA and all the "civilized" nations of the world!

Thank you for this tribute site. I hope the love and support shown hear will, in some small way, help those who suffered the greatest loss on Tuesday. I don't know the ultimate source of the poem below, but I feel the sentiment comes from all of us.

We Remember Them

At the rising of the sun and at its going down,
We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of winter,
We remember them.
At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of spring,
We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of summer,
We remember them
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of autumn,
We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends,
We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.
When we are weary and in need of strength,
We remember them.
When we are lost and sick at heart,
We remember them.
When we have joys we yearn to share,
We remember them.
When we have decisions that are difficult to make,
We remember them
When we have achievements that are based on theirs,
We remember them.
As long as we live, they too shall live,
for they are a part of us, as we remember them.

Although I enjoy writing poetry, I don't do it very often as it usually takes me days to write a single poem. Today, with no thinking before hand I picked up a pen and wrote the attached poem in less than 10 minutes.. Don't ask me where these words ccame from because I don't really know, they seemed to just flow from my pen with no help from me. I can only believe that the words came from a Higher Power, and so I share them with the world in the hope that it will stop at least one person who is thinking of doing something like this in the future.

I offer my prayers and sympathy to all who lost loved ones in this tragedy. For those who were injured I pray for a speedy recovery. May God bless us all!!




On a Tuesday morning bright and clear
I gave my girl a kiss
Then watched her board a school bus
Never knowing what I would miss
I'll never kiss her cheek again
I'll never hear her cries
One life destroyed and one life lost
When terror fell...
...from the skies

Who will teach her how to pray?
Who'll hear her dreams and cares?
And who'll be there when the preacher says
"Who gives this woman to wed?"

She'll cry at night and call for Mom
Her calls will be in vain
Because of a day when strangers came
And hate fell...
...from the skies

So now I'll watch my daughter grow
As I sit at the feet of God
And I'll pray for peace throughout the world
While my tears fall...
....from the skies

There has always been trouble.
There has always been despair.
When others need help,
who has always been there?

You have tested our strength,
and our will to keep going.
The flag will always wave.
It doesn’t matter if the wind is blowing.

Our country is the
best of them all.
From wars to terrorists,
Our flag does not fall.

We have been through things
that would make your head spin.
This attack, will receive only
the highest form of discipline.

Missing loved ones is
what this country fears.
For those people we shed
Our own little tears.

Americans will never forget
this horrific day.

Subject: So Many Unanswered Questions

How does one find the words to express what's in her heart? How do I learn to try and accept what it is I don't understand? How do we teach our children, and our children's children to love and trust, when our trust has been so violated?

These are all questions that only God can answer. So my revenge and retaliation will prevail. My weapons will be my faith and prayer, which is much stronger then any bomb mankind has created.

This past week has been so very difficult for us all to deal with. To try and continue with a, "business as usual", attitude is next to impossible, knowing that so many thousands of individuals feel as though their world, as they knew it, has ended.

Life is strange and God never promised tomorrow. It is truly a shame that each of us needed a tragedy such as this to remind us how lucky we are to be American Citizens, who live free.

My weapon of prayer will be to ask God to direct our leaders to do what is right for our country, whatever that may be. For we all need to protect our freedom, and go on teaching our children love and trust.

May God bless the families who have lost loved ones due to this needless act of violence. May God also bless the brothers and sisters of LEO's and Firefighters lost in this attack. May we all stand proud and continue, "business as usual", to teach the terrorists that they will never win this war of theirs. Because we are citizens of the United States of America, and will continue to stand in Unity, generation after generation, in spite of the ignorance of others.

Finally to all the other Countries who stand with us, may God Bless you!

I want to offer my deepest condolences to the victims' family members, as well as to the people of America for their tragic losses, as a result of the horrendous and despicable attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001. Attacks that have not only deeply hurt the people of America, but also civilization itself. Americans, I'm sure, will overcome what has happened to them, and they will rise from this tragedy stronger and more self conscious than before. People the world over are mourning with you, and are very much emotionally affected by all of this. We all must do our utmost to make sure that a terrible crime like this, can never happen again. If anything good can come from this, let's hope it will bring us all closer together, so we can make this a better world for mankind from now on.

God bless the people of America.

When I awoke September 11th I had no inkling that any thing out of the ordinary had occured. To me it was just another day and I was almost late for work. I had turned on the radio and just caught the tailend of the announcement of the tragedy. I thought it was just another plane crash. I went about my business until I finally was informed in another broadcast about the enormity of the situation.
As I watched on television later that day the same scene of the Airliner smashing into the World Trade Center over and over again I could feel my throat tighten and the tears continually well up in my eyes. I just could not fathom the enormity of the situation.
Later on in the broadcast there were scenes of some people who were watching as some of the victims jumped from the burning Trade Center.I happened to be sitting in a room with others and if they had not been present I believe I would have broke down sobbing.
I think the following day there was a scene of the Congress standing and singing "God Bless America", the pride and respect that welled up inside of me could hardly be contained. Tears flowed freely this time and I was not ashamed.
I have noticed that there are no complaints or opposition from groups that are always calling for separation of Church and State at this time. It appears that everyone has put aside these petty differences to pull together and to acknowledge that our strength is in God and the unity of faith. There are prayers that are being offered mentioning the name of Jesus Christ in government buildings.
Please lets not forget that He is the author and finisher of our faith.
Lets continue to pull together as a nation.
I am so proud to be an American, and I beam with pride when I see the flag being displayed all over.
I think the greatest pride I feel is when I hear "God Bless America" being sung and our God being acknowledged as He should always be.

Thanks, Leilani

Your support means a lot to all America right now, especially to the families of those directly touched by this nightmare. Keep us all in your prayers, but especially the victims, the rescue workers, and all their families.

Thank you from America!

“The End Of The Beginning”

In a world of love, hate and crime...

Many of us didn’t take the time...

We have jobs, stresses and strains...

Where we as Americans take life in vain...

We don’t think twice, but in the end someone will pay the price...

For we don’t know who, it could be me or it could be you...

On September 11, 2001 life was changed for good...

Thousands died, thousands cried...

We are all in this together, a ban of united humans that look out for one

For what has happened has hurt me and hurt you....

We have let our guard down and let the stranger in the shadows come

We will find you no matter what it takes...

For what you have done has not shut us down, but shown what we are
really made of...

Americans are united as one, you will never untie the united one...

Bow down to the one you serve, YOU WILL GET WHAT YOU DESERVE!

It's my job to have something to say. They pay me to provide words that
help make sense of that which troubles the American soul. But in this moment
of airless shock when hot tears sting disbelieving eyes, the only thing I
can find to say, the only words that seem to fit, must be addressed to the
unknown author of this suffering.

"You monster. You beast. You unspeakable bastard.

"What lesson did you hope to teach us by your coward's attack on our World
Trade Center, our Pentagon, us? What was it you hoped we would learn?
Whatever it was, please know that you failed.

"Did you want us to respect your cause? You just damned your cause.

"Did you want to make us fear? You just steeled our resolve.

"Did you want to tear us apart? You just brought us together.

"Let me tell you about my people. We are a vast and quarrelsome family, a
family rent by racial, social, political and class division, but a family
nonetheless. We're frivolous, yes, capable of expending tremendous emotional
energy on pop cultural minutiae -- a singer's revealing dress, a ball team's
misfortune, a cartoon mouse. We're wealthy, too, spoiled by the ready
availability of trinkets and material goods, and maybe because of that, we
walk through life with a certain sense of blithe entitlement. We are
fundamentally decent, though -- peace-loving and compassionate. We struggle
to know the right thing and to do it. And we are, the overwhelming majority
of us, people of faith, believers in a just and loving God.

"Some people -- you, perhaps -- think that any or all of this makes us weak.
You're mistaken. We are not weak. Indeed, we are strong in ways that cannot
be measured by arsenals.

"Yes, we're in pain now. We are in mourning and we are in shock. We're still
grappling with the unreality of the awful thing you did, still working to
make ourselves understand that this isn't a special effect from some
Hollywood blockbuster, isn't the plot development from a Tom Clancy novel.
Both in terms of the awful scope of their ambition and the probable final
death toll, your attacks are likely to go down as the worst acts of
terrorism in the history of the United States and, probably, the history of
the world. You've bloodied us as we have never been bloodied before.

"But there's a gulf of difference between making us bloody and making us
fall. This is the lesson Japan was taught to its bitter sorrow the last time
anyone hit us this hard, the last time anyone brought us such abrupt and
monumental pain. When roused, we are righteous in our outrage, terrible in
our force. When provoked by this level of barbarism, we will bear any
suffering, pay any cost, go to any length, in the pursuit of justice.

"I tell you this without fear of contradiction. I know my people, as you, I
think, do not. What I know reassures me. It also causes me to tremble with
dread of the future.

"In the days to come, there will be recrimination and accusation, fingers
pointing to determine whose failure allowed this to happen and what can be
done to prevent it from happening again. There will be heightened security,
misguided talk of revoking basic freedoms. We'll go forward from this moment
sobered, chastened, sad. But determined, too. Unimaginably determined.

"You see, the steel in us is not always readily apparent. That aspect of our
character is seldom understood by people who don't know us well. On this
day, the family's bickering is put on hold.

"As Americans we will weep, as Americans we will mourn, and as Americans, we
will rise in defense of all that we cherish.

"So I ask again: What was it you hoped to teach us? It occurs to me that
maybe you just wanted us to know the depths of your hatred. If that's the
case, consider the message received. And take this message in exchange: You
don't know my people. You don't know what we're capable of. You don't know
what you just started.

"But you're about to learn."

Being 25, I was born after the major horrors of the previous wars, and was naive to believe that America was immune from the attacks that other countries have experienced. Tuesday was an eyeopener for me, and frightening as I have a wife and daughter. I'm not an overly patriotic man, and definately not a man of faith, but I now have faith in the human race, as we as a nation have tried to show the world that while we grieve, we will band together. My heartfelt sorrow goes out to family & friends of those who were lost, and I hope we can heal.

With the Grace of God...walk I

I want to be where the eagles can fly free,
But, I am wings to touch a breeze.
I want to be remembered where I leave this earth,
But a speck of sand am I with a temporary hearth.
I don't really want be great...I am small,
But, I ask God fervently to bless us all.
My heart is aching and filled with sorrow,
I wonder about my...and everyone's tomorrow.
My eyes are filled with tears, shed without shame,
For September 11, 2001 brought tragic change.
It brought shock, disbelief...and great anger,
The day took many lives and heros face danger.
To the families and friends of those lost...for this
loss, what can anyone truly say?
But, may God bless you...give you strength...I pray.
To the families and friends of those lost...for this
loss, what can anyone truly say?
Your loves ones...brought this country together for
more than just one day.
On Friday, September 14, 2001, people wore and flew
America's colors of Red, White and Blue,
We joined together for remembrance, mourning, and the
concept of freedom...but also for you.
American patriotism is not lost nor forgotten,
It's still in us...the wealthy or downtrodden.
Prayer services were held at noon and at night,
Candles were lit...God saw all these lights.
And, God heard each prayer sent...the multitude and might.
Many countries embraced America and joined us in our sorrow,
A plight not theirs...another country's pain for a time borrowed.
It's said that the concept of freedom comes with a price,
Hundreds of thousands paid with their blood...once here and
gone in a thrice.
For all those lost...past and are and will be
For the freedoms enjoyed and the patriotism that your life's
blood engendered.
May your souls know God's grace...may your spirt fly like a
soft breeze to touch your loved one's face.
And, may you know as this soft breeze blows by,
It's with the Grace of God...walk I.

My sincere condolences to the families and friends of all those lost...this event has touched my life and it will never be the same again. And, please know that my prayers are with you all.
Please also know...that those lives lost and those of the still missing brought people together...color, race, religious beliefs, ways of life...these differences didn't matter. Because beneath all these differences burns the desire of freedom...the love of country...justified anger...and overwhelming sympathy and sorrow for your loss. God be with you, bless you and give you strength.

I am a British citizen and in February this year I visited NYC,
and have never been so touched by a place in my life, the people,
the buildings, the living. When the Twin Towers were bombed I was
so angry I wanted to join up myself. But much more importantly
than this was the attack upon freedom itself. I don't give a damn
what the excuse used is for these attacks. Better any US
intervention on behalf of freedom than Middle-Eastern government
oppression of freedom. Condolences from the United Kingdom go to
all those touched by this horror.

Terror's tragedy

I want you, I want you to know, I want you to know that love still lives. And whatever, whatever comes what may, I want you to know there'll be better days.And in this world there's evil and good and the good will conquer just like it should

Cause the people must stick together and there's not a storm that we can't weather.Cause we are the strong and we are the brave and we won't give up 'til we're in our graves.
Cause when we put our faith in God, no one can stop us
And no act of terror will ever stop us
Cause a coward dies a thousand deaths but a brave man only one

And we as a people will overcome and we'll make it through to the other side. And all of the victims in New York's tragedy, we'll see you again in paradise. And all of the mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers. And all of the children and friends and next of kin.
I know there's no greater pain than when you lose the ones you love. And when you put your trust in God, you'll get your revenge
But whatever you do, don't lose your loving heart
Just remember in paradise you'll see them again. So let's come together, everybody in this world as one
Cause there's only one God, one creation, one humanity
And we'll get through New York's tragedy together
Cause New York's tragedy is a tragedy for the world
