An Anthem

This song was inspired by the poem of a seven year old girl,  a few days after the events on
Sept 11th.  She was trying to comprehend what took place that day, and how she could help. 
The song features a message of how we are never alone, and there is always someone out there
to lend a hand.

The song was composed by a Canadian and arranged by an American who have never met in
person.  You have permission to perform the song.  It was written for everyone to sing.

The goal today is to get this song to every school or group in New York City, or any where for
that matter.

                        I HAVE A FRIEND

I HAVE A FRIEND, WHO LIVES ACROSS THE SEA
THOUGH FAR AWAY, I FEEL HIM  NEXT TO ME
AND IF BY CHANCE I  FALL WHEN NO ONE IS AROUND
I KNOW MY FRIEND WILL NEVER LET ME DOWN

I HAVE A FRIEND, WHO NEVER TURNS AWAY
A DIFFERENT FAITH AND LANGUAGE HE MAY PRAY
BUT IF HIS SKY AND DREAMS ARE DARKENED BY A FALL
WEíLL STAND AS ONE, HEíLL NEVER HAVE TO CALL

AND WE WILL RISE,  AND WE MAY FALL
BUT WE WILL HOLD OUR HEADS UP HIGH AS WE STAND TALL
AND IF THEY TRY, TO TURN OUR SKY TO GRAY
I KNOW MY FRIEND, WILL HELP ME WIN THE DAY

I HAVE A DREAM, (a simple dream) THAT WE WILL LIVE AS ONE (for all to hear)
A DREAM OF PEACE (a single world) NO BORDERS, HATE OR GUNS (we have to try)
AND IF I WAKE TO FIND MY DREAMS HAVE ALL COME TRUE
I KNOW MY FRIEND, HELPED MAKE MY DREAMS COME TRUE

AND WE WILL RISE, (on mountain tops) AND WE MAY FALL (Weíre not afraid)
BUT WE WILL HOLD OUR HEADS UP HIGH AS WE STAND TALL (like all men should)
AND IF THE ROCKETS TURN THE SKY TO GRAY
I KNOW MY FRIEND, WILL HELP ME WIN THE DAY
 
I HAVE A FRIEND, (not so far away) WHO LIVES ACROSS THE SEA (I can see him now)
THOUGH FAR AWAY (calling out the words) I FEEL NEXT TO ME (can I help)
AND IF BY CHANCE I FALL WHEN NO ONE IS AROUND
I KNOW MY FRIEND. (I have a friend) WE ALL HAVE FRIENDS (I have a friend)
HAVE A FRIEND, I HAVE A FRIEND

A Fourth Autumn of Discontent

With-in the shadows of our discontent, we gather this day atop hallowed ground, in the chill of another Autumn morning.
Coaxed-up memories torn into our souls, bring a river of tears, that trace another years life upon our face.
There Between the shadows, your souls begin to fill our eyes with-in a mirage of mirror-like images. 

Hope fills a cityís cleared glade, as reflected beams of fractured light overpower the shadowy darkness, and together the sadness we feel begins to fade.
Suddenly, youíre there shining down, and as each appear through a tunnel of time, we see that special smile of yours, remember? It was the one you had given back,  that very last time?

In those reflections,  we see you in that great golden lobby, and then your on that wonderful ride to the top of the world.
Above us all, youíre seen flying high above the clouds, and your holding the hand of another,  as your kindness comforts another to whom had never flown before.

Like thunder rolling in, our hearts fill with honored ultimate sacrifices
The visions of your placing a lost child back into a Motherís arms, as you stand tall in a worriers uniform. No, dont go back again, I beg you, please stop!
The pleas go gallantly unheard, as you canít hear me, and you run back into those hellish flames and smoke once more. Every year that passes, we grow weaker from calling your names.

Touched by so many reflections, overwhelm suddenly brings joy, as an incredible rainbow forms above the massive vacancy, and your all there, dancing upon itís beams, as it stands shining upon us all, and casting away any shadows left upon your memorial.

Reassurance blankets us, as we look up into those beams of brilliant color and beautiful hues, and our outstretched arms will forever grasp those incredible reflections flickering down toward us

We surround ourselves in your memory, with-in the hope brought to us by sanctity of this hollowed ground.
We bring our discontented hearts here every Autumn, no matter where we may be, to remember, those greater of us, and to give to you our honor, till the end of days

Not a day or moment goes by without my heart aching for you.  Your children miss and adore you.  Watch over us and let us know your here.  I Love You and Miss You.  Love, your wife, Audrey

I consider myself spiritually and morally responsible personally for the 9-11 attacks, for not being a better person and for not fulfilling my own obligations as a human being and as a Jew to G-d and to others. Words cannot express my grief at the suffering those went through as a result of the Twin Towers attacks.  It is a horrible, horrible, unspeakable tragedy.  I wish I had been more aware and did more to prevent this situation or help afterwards. As long as I am alive in the future, I will do more to prevent these tragic events for others in every way I can. I will no longer stand by in the face of suffering of others.

I live in Australia, I will never forget those images that  came onto our television screens that morning. For days I sat and watched and hoped and prayed for miracles. They were few and far between. The terrorists had done what they had set out to do. To bring us to our knees. But thought we will never forget 9/11 neither will we let Terrorist rule our lives.

It is now four years since 9/11, but we will never forget you - those who helped other souls in their last hour of need and those who couldn't - those who couldn't make it out of the plane, out of the buildings.  May the Almighty God will that your departed souls rest in peace and may you be with God, always.  We love you all.  May God Bless your families and loved ones.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy in New York City. Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. The sponsors of this site are paying all expenses, and are thereby keeping the site free from advertising that would take away from the solemnity of the purpose. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE! Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
