That Website is a nice monument to the victims of 9-11.
I didn't know it was you who hosted/financed the webpage. It sure is a small world.
I saw that site this morning in my Net travels.
I had no idea that you were responsible.
Thank you for that site and this one as well.
God bless you, Gerard. You always come through with your eloquent prose.
Now, I think I'll go and perform some sort of community service instead of mourning. I must rid my self of these memories....that's just not gonna happen, no matter what our socialist leadership suggests.
And we're worried about a man yelling, "You lie!" in the Hall of the People? Mr. Wilson sheepishly walked back from his passionate outburst after the first bit of criticism.
May we never walk back our passionate and correct assessment of the day's events on 9/11.
Thank you, Gerard. For this, and everything else you've shared about 9/11.
May we never forget.
I need to clear up one thing. I no longer am in a position to do this. I was for a year or so when it was struggling.
It is, or was, a 7 meg flash file and was being called millions of times in those days.
In those days bandwidth was a much more expensive thing than it is now and the man responsible was in a position where he simply couldn't afford it and was going to have to take it down from its initial host.
I was then running Penthouse.com and we already paid for plenty of bandwidth. The addition of this site to our servers cost us more but it was something I felt we could do and so I had it done.
Sometime after I left in late 2002 the new people running the site had it move on. When that was I don't know.
And no, it wasn't a "part" of Penthouse.com or a subdomain. I had a pointer to it on the home page and on the original early version of this page that I also started early in 2002, but that I think was it.
Didn't make it.
The heart falters.
Maybe when my husband can sit beside me.
I watched this flah presentation so many times that I cannot tell you. I watched it again yesterday afternoon thinking about that day. I worked in midtown and walked up Manhattan and the Bronx that day to my home in lower Westchester not knowing what else to do and hoping it would tire me enough to be able to sleep.
This presentation has a sincerity and intensity to it that no slick commercial presentation has ever conveyed. It is the most touching tribute I've seen from that entire horrifying episode. So I cannot thank you enough for being responsible for all of this. Thanks.
Thank you, Vanderleun. That was well worth the small wait.
Very powerful presentation. I remember Friday night of that week watching a high school football game in Alabama and weeping as the Star Spangled Banner played. God bless America!
Thank you for keeping up the site. And for your poem.
