I have been overwhelmed by the responses I have received in relation to this site, many from people I've never met. Here are just a few of them...
(from the person that posted the pictures used in this
tribute in a chat room I later visited)
Thanks again for the beautiful page... you truly have a gift! I was truly pleased that you were able to edit the Australian remembrance into the pictures; you were right, it is so moving to hear from all corners of the earth, especially when we have loved ones everywhere now via the internet.
I feel you should know that God was truly working to get
your page together... I was at work on Tuesday, and we had no television access
there. Instead, I was listening to the radio, and looking for information and
pictures on the internet, when one of the nurses said that she'd seen some pics
on Yahoo.. I went to that site, and they had about 36, then 75 pics up... every
hour the number became greater. And they were, as you now know, stunning photos.
I went to the chat room Friday night while I watched a replay of the memorial
service at the National Cathedral in Washington. When I found it empty, I clicked
over to the Yahoo site again, and every time I'd see a picture that moved me I
posted it. No one ever came into the
room, and I was halfway wondering why I was doing this and if anyone would ever see these pictures that
Of course God moves in ways we cannot plan, nor comprehend. Thanks for showing me that. It is a lesson that bears repeating!
I love how you web page is laid out ... you did an excellent
job. I have sent it to quite a few people who do not 'chat.' And it helps me,
as an American to feel globally supported right now. It is hard for most to express
what is going on inside of them and pictures allow a venue for tears to flow ....
thank you Beth. Thank you. Today was a new day ... one at a time, we will go forward
and heal by Faith .... see you soon, i hope.
Oh, thank you my sweet friend for that great site and your great work to make it. You have hit on what is the truest way to peace, when we can move past the mind set of "us and them" there is no them, only us.
An absolutely astounding tribute. I had tears in my eyes through the entire display. God Bless you and all the world!
Thank you for your web site, I shed tears as I see others around the world share in the grief of this country.
I have forwarded it to hundreds of readers.
You have touched my heart.
thank you and may your God bless you
Talie, that is the most incredible tribute I have seen to
date. Brought me to tears. TY for devoting such effort to help comfort all of
us struggling to cope, not only in the USA, but, as so well spoken by you, worldwide.
I am sorry I accidentally sent it back to
the list. Forwarded it to everyone in haste, after being so moved. My love to you all, and please, PEACE ON EARTH.
Your tribute to the victims of Tuesday's terrorist attacks was most moving and beautiful. Thank you for your tasteful memorial and sentiments. Your efforts to comfort will long be remembered.
Absoluitely beautiful...and so peaceful and healing. Thanks
fro sharing...and I have fwd it to eveyone I can think of...around 50 people...at
least...and I know they will forward as well.
Thanks for sending me the web site address. It was just beautiful. We can't understand it. We never will... no matter how much news coverage we watch or how much the US government searches for the perpetrators. These things are beyond us... but not beyond God.
Thank you so much for the site you created. You did a fine
job. It will be sent all over from me. I understand about the over-abundance of
news. When I was little it was the Watergate scandals. I wonder what my boys are
thinking. Anyway, I was so glad when I got up Saturday morning to find Cartoons
on! From Tuesday
morning until Saturday morning, there was nothing on except news. No exaggeration. No soap operas, no sit-coms, nothing. I did not have a problem with it until the media seemed to be grasping at straws looking for something to report. I felt a need to get back to some routine, to not focus entirely on something so stressfull. It did amaze and impress me how the media spoke of faith for the first time in decades. Spoke of God. Billy Graham delivered a salvation message not only on national television, but on world television. Wow! That would have never happened. So it wasn't all bad. but to the point, I know what you mean about so much on the news.
Absolutely one of the most moving tributes I've seen for our fallen comrades. Thank you......The pictures..... are so terribly poignant, and they the broad scope of this incredible show of support.
Thank you again.
This page is absolutely beautiful. Such a nice tribute you
have made for the familys of this terrible disaster here in the United States.
May God bless you and all the others in the world who show such heartwarming caring
Della Mawk, Indiana, USA And I am so proud to be an American.
from someone still awaiting word regarding friends and family lost...
.....but thank you for your page. In some solemn way, it
helps my heartache.
