9/11 How Soon We Forget - September 11, 2013
video will only be up on YouTube until 9/15/2013… Then I’ll be taking it down until
I bring it back again around this time next year.
9/11 How Soon We Forget
-- VIDEO NO LONGER UP --
made the above video/slide back in 2004 on the events of 9/11 the
day… and as time slowly passed, up to one year later.
first like to tell you how this video came to be…
running down some music to use on my family website that I use to have up… and
at the time was looking in a place I used from time to time that had GREAT midi
files that a very talented man name Dan West wrote and composed.
when I ran across his latest work that he had written and composed himself in
memory of the victims of 9-11. His song was titled “Heartbreak Blues” and Dan
had put it up on his website for all to listen too.
make a long story short… Dan’s music inspired me so… that I wrote him and asked
his permission to use his music in a video/slide project I was wanting to work
on and he was kind enough to say OK. And that I still thank him for.
About the video.The very
first part is put together pretty much in a perfect timeline as the events
unfolded that tragic day on 9/11/2001. Then I go back and forth in time with
part, “Goodbyes”, after the credit roll, starts off at the footprints of the
Twin Towers, one year later. It was early that morning on 9-11-2002 and the
family members of the ones that lost their lives along with others came to say
goodbye one more time.
morning went from a calm clear morning at first then to being very windy and a
dust storm whipped up. Some of the family members who were there said it was as
if their loved ones had come down from heaven to say their last goodbyes too.
Many said a chill was in the air and that a strange calm came over them.
first few pictures I move back and forth in time from days after 9-11-2001, as
people from around the world mourned the dead and this tragedy to one year
later, back at the footprints of the towers.
Why did I
make this video some might ask? Well… I mainly made this video for my family
and friends to watch once a year... and being you are reading this right now…
you MUST be one or the other!!!
this video/slide that I made is actually a 2-parter. The 1st part I call “9/11…
How Soon We Forget”. Then after the credit roll is the 2nd part that I call
“Goodbyes”. So be sure to watch it to the end.
the record… I could have gone very graphic with this and almost did at first…
but in the end I keep away from doing so for I wanted it to be able to be seen
by both adults and children alike. Regardless, I still made it strong enough to
get the point across as to just how violent and emotional of an event this
9/11, how soon we forget
No other words needed
In memory of all those that lost
their lives that tragic day...
