I really hope the word "cartoonist" does not pervent people
from checking out this site. Oh - the power and talent of expres-
sing oneself with out words. Very poignant.

I've been wondering, and have wanted to ask, if you have a
minute, how ARE your kids doing with this?

Take a moment to look at the following thread as you pray for world peace.
It takes a moment to load but it is worth it. To see the outpuring of support from around the world.
I pray that we can begin to heal together as a nation.
Those with slow links will have to let this load for quite a while (many minutes) but, as Kalalily said, it's well worth it. There are many, many pictures. I opened it in a separate window and let it run while I read other posts.
Thanks for the link, Kalalily and AriesMoon. What a comfort to see such world-wide support.

just thought you might like to know that even though all the usuall football games went ahead today as normal, all of the games had a minutes silence before kick off, and the Everton and Liverpoll darbey paid a lovely tribute, each captain laid out a flag at the half way circle, the Everton cap, laid the U.S.A. flag out and placed flowers on it,, and the Liverpool cap laid out the British flag and everyone stood in a minutes silence, it was so moving.

The ceremony inyour country sounded lovely. It bought chills to me. I thank you and your country for thinking of us during this time of sorrow for not only our nation, but the world.
PS. Please help pray for world peace and that our country begins to heal.

A friend of mine, Jerry S., that lives in Saddlebrook, NJ. sent me some pictures he and his wife took from the NJ side of the river.
It shows a new skyline alright...at times still beautiful too...but it'll never be the same. :scared:
If you'd like to take a look here's the url to the site

Hope you'll all visit...and Thanks.

But to me, this was the absolute MOST touching. It is NOT the imagine one posted here earlier, though it seems to have a similar title. It doesn't even share the same music.
MODERATORS WARNING: the Flash production at the URL below contains extremely GRAPHIC deptictions of the events of 9/11/01 and images you may not have seen on the television. Psychologists are warning the public, that we should not be viewing some of these images over and over, or they may cause Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome in the future.
However, the Flash production memorial is very well done - it will generate very strong emotions. But if you are sensitive, you may not want to view it.

You are absolutely right. This was a cut above the others I've
seen. Very beautiful, very moving, thank you.
As you can tell by my insertion of the warning above, I was deeply affected by this memorial.
I think however, the sevaral pictures of the people falling out of the towers, was a very poor decision.
Watch at your own risk.
09-23-2001, 10:50 AM
Sorry about that,,,, I should have warned everyone about that.
09-24-2001, 10:32 PM
I know the subject includes the message not to dwell on memorials, but I thought I'd share this tribute since I found it very moving:
A Tribute (http://www.azillionmonkeys.com/tribute.htm)
I should add that it does have some graphic images but not as much as the other flash presentation, and the second half is dedicated to the memorials.
I cried more when I saw this presentation than I did on the day of the tragedy.
09-24-2001, 11:58 PM
Well, I didn't get to see the tribute Elizabeth, (kept getting stuck at the infamous "39%"), but thanks for posting it.
But it got me to thinking what a shame it will be that all these beautiful tributes, words, and graphics, will be lost to future generations as our technology changes. Textbooks will preserve the history, but the thoughts and feelings of all of us experiencing these events may not be accessible in 10 years.
Our remote ancestors recorded their words and images on stone tablets and cave walls, which have lasted for thousands of years. What will they know about us one thousand years in the future? :(

Wow! Both of those had very powerful messages. I haven't been watching TV or on the boad much lately for a reason. I have been feeling like something has been taken from me........from all of us. My heart still is very heavy and I'm not sure when the pain will subside. I went back and forth with myself on weather or not I should watch those links. I am glad that I did. I don't think that I am ready to let go just yet. So very sad and such a waste!
I am beginning to think that we were all brought together to help not only spread the message of C.A.V or to learn about it, or because we have loved ones who have passed and desperately want to stay connect or at least learn how to see the messages they are sending our way.........but, maybe it is because in times like these we need to know that they are in a better place......they do still watch over us and love us. We need eachother and that is why we are hear.....that is why we all found JE when we did.........and that is why Pam had to put this message board together. I can't tell you how lucky I feel to have found JE, the message and all of you. Before this I was so lost in my beliefs.
I hope this all makes sence. I should probably step back and take a deep breath and reflect before I start typeing. But this is what I thought after seeing those tributes.
So A Big C.A.V. to all my JE friends. And a great big ((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))

A friend of mine in Saddlebrook, NJ who was in the Army (years ago) was deeply bothered by the attack on the WTC buildings...on Sept. 16th he and his wife went to Hoboken and to Weehawken and took some pictures of the New York skyline at a different angle...from the NJ side of the ocean.
He sent them to me, and I immediately felt a sense of knowing more about what the sight we were going to have to get used to seeing was going to look like-and wanted to share this with others...so I made a webpage...not with images of the destruction, but with images of the new scene. I think they give a sense of hope...I hope you all will see for yourselves the beauty that the NY skyline still holds, as I did.
Please check out the webpage and sign the guestbook and let me know what you think...if you like it, send the url on to others to see, and ask them to please sign the book also. I hope to hear from all over the World.

Thanks and Love to you all,

Nice page Debi. The photos reminded me that there is still beauty in NYC. Although you could clearly see ground zero all lit up, you could also see that NY is more than that.
I sometimes wonder if we will ever see photos of the skyline without a sadness for that which has been lost.
**I sometimes wonder if we will ever see photos of the skyline without a sadness for that which has been lost. **
I don't think so, Tammy. However, I do believe that one day soon we will be able to look at that skyline and feel pride in the American spirit mixed with that sadness. Bittersweet, to say the least...

I think you guys will really like it. At first I wasn't sure if it was a new site or an old, but there is one image that makes you realize even if it WAS an old, they have made an update.
No need for warnings on this one!
09-29-2001, 07:31 PM
Thank you. This has been a favorite since it first came out.
It is more so today.

:) TeresaR Thank You for posting this website here. It is beautifully done and Lee Greenwoods music is the best song for what we are going through right now. God bless the USA. Kim :)

Now that was AWESOME!!!!:daisy: :daisy:
Oh, that's IS a goody, thanks Teresa!
10-01-2001, 11:00 AM
That song always makes me weepy (they play it at fireworks all the time...) but now it's taken on an even deeper meaning....:) thanks
10-01-2001, 12:56 PM
i even enjoyed that myself.
i was in my local shop at the weekend getting my weekly shop, and along all the isles were rows and rows of the american flag, and a huge one at the end of the main isle, it was so touching and as i was walking down them, myself and my mum had tearey eyes. you guy's would have loved it.
10-01-2001, 06:03 PM
On my site. Can someone who does NOT have cable take a look, and tell me how long it takes it to load, and if it sounds ok? I am still looking for the perfect presentation, but it felt to me like it was time to change from God Bless the USA to the time honored song which you will find there.
10-26-2001, 03:01 PM
This is by far the best tribute on the net I have seen. It made me cry and have shivers. It is beautiful and well done. My hat is off to the webmaster who created it. To date over 100,000 people have seen it.
To answer some questions I have had from posting this to my Boxer group.
1. Make sure your sound is ON. The music is one of the biggest parts.
2. This is a flash file and shows LOADING, before starting.
3. Depending on the speed of you connection it could take a bit to load up. It is worth the wait.
If you don't have macromedia flash to view here is where you can get the download. http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash
Here is the link: http://www.wclubunderground.com/tribute.html
It will leave you speechless, well, I hope not to much, cause I want to see if anyone else found it as moving as I did.
Love and Light,
10-26-2001, 03:37 PM
Oh wow. Yes, chills, tears, sobs.....and prayers. The music was just so chilling. It was such a baleful, mourning. But, I think what also struck me was that hint of a mid-eastern sound.
Thank you for sharing this.
That was very moving. Thank you so much for sharing it with us.:daisy:
11-11-2001, 11:15 AM
That was beautiful.
That was truly a wonderful tribute. I am in awe of all of the people who have put together the many tributes I have seen these last 2 months. Thank you so much Star! A friend of mine at work who has a son on the USS Pelilue and is in the Indian Ocean, told me about this site but didn't have the name right so I couldn't get into it.:daisy:
11-11-2001, 01:21 PM
Starwindsing .....I am going to share this with my son godfather who lives in New York.....
11-11-2001, 02:32 PM
Thank you Star, :thumbsup:
I'm sending it to my sister in Portland and my good friend in Maryland. I know they will like it. It was beautiful.
