Tributes

A Heartfelt Thank You
This is the first huge tribute to appear immediately after September 11th, documenting images from around the world, of shock, grief, and horror. Viewed here in New York, this collection of images was one of the most intense expreriences of my life. I shared it with other mental health professionals, some of whom said (once the initial trauma had worn off after a few weeks), "seeing these images allowed me to cry for the first time". This is not the images of the Twin Towers burning or collapsing, or the planes, or the exodus below. These are images of real people in places like Tokyo, Palestine, the Phillipines, China, Germany, France, Finland, and the U.K., to name a few. Candles and flowers and tears, everywhere. The message is overwhelming: all the people of the Earth were in shock, collectively, and thanking the U.S. for its past while recognizing the horror of the present. This will bring tears, hopefully tinged with appreciation for our world neighbors, and the joy of knowing that people around the entire world are equally horrified by senseless acts of terror and hate, and were there for us in our time of need, thanking us for having been there for them, as well. As the 21st Century begins, we maintain hope, together....

America Attacked 9 1 1
This is also very powerful, likely to bring tears to many. A multimedia (flash) presentation combining heart-wrenching images and sound-bytes of horror, shock and disbelief on Sept.11, in New York and Washington, with a full-fidelity soundtrack of Only Time. "Dedicated to the men, women and children who lost their lives; all those who sacrificed their lives; And to all the Heroes that responded to the emergency 11 September 2001".

Steven A. Jacobson
This is a personal tribute to a friend who died atop the World Trade Center on Sept.11, a hero. Steven maintained radio and TV transmitters and kept emergency communications going from atop the WTC, through blizzards and bombs... and up until the end. Many people miss him. I've heard from friends and family and total strangers, sharing sympathy and remembrances, and telling of their own memorials to Steven, ranging from books to quilts.

Tribute WTC Visitor Center[Updated]
This "person to person history" of 9/11 opened 5 years after, in September 2006, across the street from the site, keeping the memory of the WTC alive and offering tribute. Powerful and respectful.
