One Year Later

has been 365 days since we created this memorial site, and although a
difficult undertaking, both emotionally and from a time aspect, we
still stand by the belief that it has been the most worthwhile and
rewarding professional undertaking we have ever chosen to do. Though it
has been six months since the last update, we have monitored the
emails, message board and lists consistently. What amazes us to this
day is not only how we were able to help you, but you were able to help
us, as well as help the many other visitors to this site. Simply by
visiting, posting words, thoughts and pictures, this site still
accomplishes it's intended goals.
months ago we sat and reviewed, thinking of this day that has come upon
us now. We discussed a redesign of the site, and whether that would
have a positive or negative effect on us, as well as the many viewers
this site has had. After some discussion we decided against a redesign.
We designed this last September to memorialize those that we have lost,
loved, and now miss. For us to go and change anything, would in turn
alter peoples views of that day and the anything that happened soon
there has been significant media hype over the past two weeks about
this day, we tend to believe that the excessive exposure lessens the
importance of remembering 9/11. Being one year later does not make that
day any more significant than the first day, first week, or
ninety-third day after the event. That is because each and ever day
that passes is still a day someone is living without a father, a
mother, a sister, a brother, a loved one; and each and every day is one
of significance. This excessive exposure one year later cannot educate
us anymore than we were educated on that fateful day and the days that
encourage everyone to say a prayer, attend a vigil or memorial
ceremony, fly Old Glory proudly, and observe a moment of silence for
those lost but not forgotten, however we also encourage you to live
your life, carry on your routine as those lost loved ones would want
you to, because we cannot afford to lose another day to this war on

is with deep regret that
we have created this site. Today, is quite possibly the single greatest
disaster in modern history with the loss of people at the WTC, as
well as the towers themselves. It is unknown as to what the loss
count may be.
