Our nation has always cast it's bread upon the water reaching out to those in need across the oceans. Even though our nation became broken at this tragedy on September 11, 2001 with great loss of life, grief and devastation, if we Trust In God, He will heal our broken hearts and brokenness for their is healing in His wings.

As a people and a nation we must never put greed, hatred, riches, jealousies or possessions above human life, we must never forget that life itself is more precious than fine gold. May we never forget to Trust In God! Our national motto is, "In God We Trust." We must not loose our Trust In God no matter how much loss we suffer, or how much grief we have to bear, or how much devastation we have suffered as a family member, loved one, survivor, friend, people, nation or nations. If we Trust In God He will lift us up again and again.

A 9/11 Tribute in word to the family members, loved ones, friends and people who suffered great loss, devastation and grief that day and every day since that tragedy. A 9/11Tribute in word to the brave who marched into devastation to reach out to those who needed help regardless of the cost knowing that they were not coming back out of the tragedy but gave their lives for others. A 9/11Tribute in word to the people of our nation and the people of the 90 nations that this tragedy touched.

On 9/11/2001 nearly 3,000 people died in the attack time, including 2,977 victims, including three hundred seventy two foreign nationals who perished in the attacks, the immediate deaths included 246 victims on the four planes, 2,606 in New York City in the World Trade Center and on the ground, and 125 at the Pentagon and about 292 people were killed at street level. All the deaths were civilians except 55 military personnel killed at the Pentagon. Some immediate deaths were not added to the list until years later.

Weeks later after the attacks the death toll was estimated to be over 6,000 more than twice the number of deaths eventually confirmed.

We must not forget what terrorism brings to a nation! We must stand and be all that God has called us to be One Nation Under God!

Health effects extended to students, office workers of Lower Manhattan and nearby China Town approximately 18,000 have developed illnesses.

We must remember what terrorism brings to a people and a nation. Terrorism comes to steal, kill and destroy. We must not forget how precious life is and we must cherish life and our freedom in our nation as a people, for we are truly weaved in the fiber of life itself, one life touches another weaved in time with God's love. We must trust in God.
