This is such a wonderful tribute to all of our fallen heroes. It's a true blessing to have such wonderful and loving people as your self. In all your efforts this has really made you a hero. Keep holding your head high and continue to be strong for the ones we lost. They are watching us and I know they're filled with joy. This a very touching song and it is now in the hearts of many. Many tears were shed when this message was forwarded. May God Bless YOU! ~ Terra

I just wanted to thank you for allowing me to see that beautiful piece for 9/11 it really inspired me to look more into people, Thank You ~ Joey

OF COURSE, SEPT. 11TH AFFECTED US ALL, BUT WE NEVER REALLY KNOW WHAT OUR CHILDREN ARE THINKING. MY DAUGHTER WATCHED THE NEWS, AND HAD WHAT I THOUGHT , FULL KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT WAS HAPPENING.  NOT UNTIL SHE WATCHED THIS VIDEO AND LISTENED TO THE SONG, DID SHE TRULY UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENED.  SHE WAS NINE YEARS OLD, AND WHEN WE WERE WATCHING THE VIDEO, TEARS BEGAN TO ROLL DOWN HER FACE. SHE THEN LOOKED AT ME AND SAID, "I DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS REAL" I SAID, "WHAT DO YOU MEAN?" AND SHE STATED, "WELL ON TV IT DIDN'T LOOK REAL, BUT WATCHING THIS VIDEO MADE ME SEE THAT IT REALLY HAPPENED, AND PEOPLE REALLY DIED."  FROM THAT POINT ON, 9/11 TOOK ON A MAJOR IMPORTANCE IN HER LIFE. SHE IS INVOLVED IN PAGEANTS AND WHEN SHE WAS ASKED WHO HER HERO WAS, SHE WOULD PROUDLY SAY " THE FIREFIGHTERS ON SEPT. 11" . AND YES, WE HAD TO MAKE SEVERAL STOPS AT PETCO TO MAKE DONATIONS FOR THE DOGS.  ONE NEVER KNOWS WHAT A CHILD IS THINKING, OR HOW THEY PERCEIVE THINGS. WE TALKED TO OUR DAUGHTER, WENT TO CANDLELIGHT VIGILS WHERE THEY HAD CHILD PSYCHOLOGISTS TALKING TO CHILDREN. YET, STILL SHE DIDN'T REALLY UNDERSTAND THE IMPACT UNTIL SHE WATCHED THIS VIDEO. WE RECENTLY TOOK A TRIP, THE FIRST AFTER 9/11, AND WHILE WE WERE IN THE AIRPLANE, SHE EVEN REMEMBERED THE SONG, AND MADE A COMMENT ABOUT HOW THEY MUST HAVE FELT SO HIGH IN THE AIR, KNOWING THEY WERE GOING TO DIE.  I JUST WANTED TO WRITE THIS MESSAGE FOR SOMEONE TO KNOW THAT THIS SONG, THIS VIDEO, TOUCHED A LITTLE GIRLS LIFE.  THIS IS SOMETHING THAT WILL BE IN HER MEMORY FOREVER. THE DAY SHE REALIZED WHAT SEPTEMBER 11TH REALLY MEANT.   THANK YOU SO MUCH. ~ Mariah

All I can say is that this video and song is the most moving tribute to those that we lost so tragically a year ago. It still seems so vivid in my mind.  I don't think that the nation or the world will ever forget September 11, 2001. Bless you for giving this gift of healing to those of us on the internet.  ~ Anna  

~~*~~

When I heard this song and saw the video I cried I sent it to my whole family America was hit hard on 9/11 but it made us wake up and stand together as a whole the world now can see we will not fall. My heart goes out to the family's and I pray we never go through this again Thank you Sandy for such a wonderful song. ~ Sallie May from Florida

~~*~~

Thank you for this lovely tribute.
It helps to deal with this day and to help us move on.
I think it will mean alot to the nation and to the survivors of this tragedy to heal through song. ~ Diane

~~*~~

Sandy, I cried SOOO hard when i heard you sing... little did she know, I am a proud yet, sad Canadian, I have done all I could (no I shouldn't say that), but all in my power as a 15-year-old to help the victims of September 11th, 2001, and i just wanted to say, i have seen many websites on this horrific occasion, and yours touched me the most so thank you very very much! ~ Erin

~~*~~

I just wanted to say that I loved that song that goes with the webpage you created, called, "Little Did She Know...". I love the voice, because it reminds me of one of my favorite (and missed) music artists -- Karen Carpenter. Although I know that it isn't Ms. Carpenter's voice, it sounds a lot like her style. Also, may I add that this has a special significance for me, since #1) my husband is a firefighter, #2) Flight 93 went down only 30 minutes from where I live and #3) the Twin Towers were located only couple of hours from where I used to live -- I am a native New Yorker. Thank you for adding this webpage.  ~ Lisa

I loved this song, it brought many tears to my eyes. I am a 7th grade junior high teacher and at the beginning of each class our school has "G.O.T" time for 5 minutes. This is a 5 minute time for students to "Get On Task". Today 9-11, I played your lovely song for this "Got" time. My students loved it and it brought tears to even my "so-called tough" students. I pray for you each day and know that all of those angels in the sky are smiling brightly and proud of America. May God Bless you always. Love and Light, ~ Teri

~~*~~

Sandy, I am a retired firefighter and retired Air force vet and your song left beautiful tears in my eyes..  I haven't had tears for a long time. Just years of built up passion and stress I guess. Your song and tribute is so wonderful.  Just thanks and May God Bless. ~ Bob

~~*~~

I just found your tribute on 9/11 i was watching cnn at the same 
time.. I'm from Waco Texas... I was watching that morning when the plane crashed into the wtc and i was so much in shock. At first i couldn't believe it.. So i called my friend in Houston and she said the same thing. I just wanted to let u know that I really enjoyed your site it made me cry which gave me a little relief.. I didn't know anyone in the wtc, although i had a friend from Dallas that was there the day before.. I can only imagine how the people feel in that area and so many people lost there lives that day.. I myself am still trying to cope with it.. I hope and pray with each and every day for the families, and everyone that helped with the wtc and pentagon.. My thought's are with ya'll and everyone!!
Sincerely, ~ Pam

Thank you for the Wonderful Tribute. My wife and I are Emt's in New Jersey and we went to NY that day with our Ambulance Squad. They Stationed us at the New York Water Way in Weehawken, NJ where they were bringing people over by ferry. Those people were the lucky ones being treated for mostly Smoke Inhalation. They would not let any of us in near ground Zero. On the other side of the river there were over 1,000 Fire, Police and Emt's just sitting on there Gear along West Side Highway because of it being too Dangerous to be near the tower site. That is a Day We will never forget in our life time.
Once again,
Thank you, ~ Al & Carol

~~*~~

I was sent by a friend "Little Did She Know" I enjoyed that and shared it. I have viewed all of your 911 pages. You have done a beautiful job of paying tribute to all the victims and families and heroes of 911. Thank you for your time and efforts. I am sure that others have enjoyed this as much as I have. ~ Mary

I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I WAS VERY TOUCHED BY  LITTLE DID SHE KNOW. THE FIRST TIME I HEARD IT I CRIED I THOUGHT OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO KISSED HERO'S THAT MORNING NOT KNOWING IT. ~ JEAN

~~*~~

I'm having difficulty putting into words what I think about this tribute little did she know. I'm not often at a loss of expression, and I've seen and heard a lot of tributes to the 'heroes of 9/11', and this is special. Thank You, whomever sent this to us. and thank you, Ms Foley, for sharing this. ~ Mike

~~*~~

Thank you!
That was sad, that made me cry, that made me feel just a smidgen of what those heroes' wives and families must have gone through having lost their hero. It also made me feel so proud of them too. They gave the ultimate sacrifice for a better good. How do you thank someone like that? You just did.   This is a beautiful and wonderful tribute to them....just wonderful,
thank you again. ~ Robyn

"Little did she know" is absolutely beautiful! I would listen to it many times a day and it would comfort me. Sorry you discontinued it, I really miss it. ~ Becky

IT DEFINITELY  ADDED TO THE SERVICE AND  MADE EVERYONE REMEMBER THE PRICE THAT WAS PAID THAT DAY, NOT ONLY THE LOVED ONES WHO DIED ,BUT THEIR FAMILIES AND THE VOID THAT IT LEFT IN THEIR LIVES TOO.  AS AN AMERICAN AND MOST OF ALL AS A HUMAN BEING WHO LOVES ALL PEOPLE AND FEELS THEIR SORROW, I   SALUTE YOUR WILLINGNESS TO USE YOUR GOD GIVEN TALENT TO  GIVE TRIBUTE TO OUR FALLEN HEROES, I   THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND GOD BLESS YOU AND EVERYONE AFFILIATED WITH YOU. GOD BLESS AMERICA                ~ TED

I saw this tribute and I couldn't help but to get a tear in my eye. I wasn't directly affected by this terrible tragic thing, however it saddens me never the less. This was the most beautiful tribute that I have ever seen. I am sorry that it isn't available any more, I was about to share it with a friend of mine. Thanks for the memory of it though. ~ Ruth Ann

~~*~~

This tribute to 9/11 has touched all who have seen it.  I was so disappointed that it was not able to be seen again, because so many others wanted to view it.  Please continue to try to air the tribute again.  Thank you. ~ Karen

~~*~~

Of all the tributes for those who suffered the lose of loved ones, this one has got to be at the top of the list.  What a wonderful tribute to all of them.  It sure brings tears to eyes of those who only knew them as fellow Americans.  May God Bless You for this wonderful song. ~ Nina

~~*~~

Sandy, This has got to be one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Thank you for taking the time to sing such a beautiful tribute to those who lost their lives in 911. Your song is very special and extremely touching. As Americans, we appreciate it! God Bless You! ~ Annette

~~*~~

Those of us Australians who have paid our respects at Ground Zero have been moved & humbled by that experience. Sandy's tribute brought tears again as I remembered the horror of that day. Please remember that Australians are with you. We have been Allies for over 100 years & will remain so for at least another 100 years. God Bless America.~ Roscoe, South Australia

~~*~~

I cannot see how anyone could listen to this beautiful piece and not have watery eyes! We need things like this for us to realize and open our eyes, hearts, and souls to the tender thought of true humanity. We need to view what we live for, what we all stand for, what we each strive for! I always will appreciate what you made, and what I had the blessing to hear and to keep, within. God bless us all! ~ Carolyn

~~*~~

I would like to congratulate those involved in bringing this beautiful tribute to the public,...I am from Australia and this I know has touched so many people here...This is just to let you all know that even the Australian residents have not forgotten you and never will. Please all be strong and we will overcome all the problems that this has arisen out of 9/11...My thoughts go out to all Americans ~ Barbie

~~*~~

I am an Australian, with many wonderful friends in America, I have been there three times and love the country and its people. This is a beautiful Tribute and such a pretty song, it certainly has touched the hearts of many all over the world, and I personally thank everyone concerned, I have forwarded it on to friends both here and in the States. 'GOD BLESS' you all. Thank you. ~ Elaine

~~*~~

I have just learned of your website and the song is beautiful. I'm so sorry I did not get to see the video. Perhaps you will bring it back sometime. The song is such a lovely tribute--it made me cry. But God is good and I know He is with all who will lean on Him. May God bless you and God bless America.~ Pearl

~~*~~

Very, very touching tribute. You are a hero as well to so many. You enable people to grieve in their own way, at their own pace. G-d Bless You. ~ David

~~*~~

I knew Cee Cee who was a flight attendant on the flight 93 that went down in penn. She was a terrific person as a cop and she knew people well. I hope her family and friends will always keep her in their heart. Love you CeeCee. ~ Vicki

~~*~~

So beautiful and soul searching for us. Not only did we enjoy and reflect on the message, we are positive those souls have been blessed by your tribute as well as those of us who remember the day. ~ Bob & Christine

~~*~~

Ms. Foley, when I first saw little did she know, I was in school. Our teacher told us to look at it on September 11. I started to cry, and I don't cry very easily. I have shown this site to many people and everyone has been deeply touched by it. thank you so much. you have touched a lot of lives! ~ kaileigh

~~*~~

I just wanted to tell you that, this have touched my heart and soul forever. I think it helps us heal, and not deny what has happened, yet look at it in a way that these men and women where HEROES! Thank you to everyone! ~ Marisa

~~*~~

I believe this has to be one of the most heart-touching tributes I've ever heard & seen. What an incredible amount of love has been poured into this. This tribute puts me in the center of all that took place that day; a day that will remain in the heart & souls of so many. God's has inspired those responsible for this lasting tribute. God Bless all who were personally involved & those who felt a part of the event. ~ Evelyn

~~*~~

As a New York City Police Officer for 15 yrs Sept 11th was the worst day of my career. I lost many of my co-workers (extended family) at ground zero. I admire their heroism and miss them terribly. I find comfort in knowing they are now Angels. I think of them and their families daily. Thank you for keeping their memory alive. God Bless.... ~ Liz

~~*~~

The most moving and beautiful song and video I have ever seen. We must never take life for granted again. I miss the video and the people in it will forever be in my heart. Thank you for the song and for singing about ALL our heroes. This song and video needs to be shown to the world. God Bless you.~ Laurie

~~*~~

I have listened to this song over and over again....I still get goose bumps. Well done and God bless. Please bring the video back they go so well together. ~ Leslie

~~*~~

This song is so beautiful. I am writing a speech for my speech class and I was doing research on the fdny and I came across this site. I have seen and heard several and this was absolutely beautiful. It made me cry. Since 9/11 I do not take things for granted like I used to. I will never look at people the same and I will love everyone, even the rude and mean ones. God has a place in his kingdom for all. God Bless. ~ Shelly

~~*~~

From Canada with love, you touched our hearts, when we heard this song, it melded all tragic stories together and one can heal from all hurts, 9-11 or others from the healing words within your song. Thanks, from us who have also had a tragic loss and from Canadian Troops who served in Afganistan, Canadian snipers having 6 confirmed kills in 6 days.  Canadian Special Forces who participated in hunting and seeking out AL Quada members and destroying their points of operation with the utmost professionalism and realization that the war on terrorism will not end here.!  But as proud Canadians, we will stand our ground, and fight to the death, because that is the way of the Canadian Military Man!! We are proud and we salute you.  For every loss that is incurred, there is a hero, for every moment that is lost, there is a hero, not recognizable, not in the forfront, but with every tragedy there is a hero.! Look unto yourself and you will see one. ~ ROSE AND WILLY HRENCHUK

~~*~~

I am from Long Island New York, and new alot of firefighters that died that day. But my heart truly aches for all those people on the airplanes. And I think we should all be so thankful for those heroes who may have saved many other lives by taking over that plane. No one who died on 9/11 will go unnoticed in my heart............EVER!!!!!! ~ Kim

~~*~~

I was so moved by this Web site that I really don't know how to express my anguish at the Arab world.  You want the government to nuke the Middle East on one hand, but you want the world to heal on the other.  I just don't know what to say except God bless all the people who became heroes for merely dying. ~ Ken McVay

~~*~~

I want to thank you so very much for this inspiring song. It has touched my heart so very much. I live in Oklahoma and experienced the Oklahoma City bombing. I cannot explain how horrifying it was or how others must have felt during 9/11. But with others, guided by god we are a strong nation and will make it through. again thank you! ~ Kevin Main

~~*~~

My husband worked at the pentagon...need i say more.. thank you for the song , I will think of him every time I hear it, I miss him so much. I would like to take the time to say to all my sisters in morning I love you and hope we will carry on for them. GOD BLESS AMERICA...Honey I MISS YOU
 ~ Cindy

~~*~~

Thank you so much for this beautiful tribute.  We in Okla City feel a kindred spirit with the people in New York since we experienced the bombing of the Murrah Building in 1995.  This beautiful tribute brought many tears to my eyes since I have played it many times and I sent it to so many of my friends and they all thanked me for sharing this beautiful song with them. ~ Aubrey

~~*~~

I ordered the cd and still every time I play it (at least  6 times a day) it brings tears to my eyes, as I think about the friends and families who lost a  loved one on that memorable day. May God wrap his arms of comfort around these people and may they find comfort in His embrace. This is part of God's bigger plan; what an honor that He chose your loved one for the mission. I hope this may  offer some comfort to those who lost someone that day. May God continue to comfort you in those times of sorrow and know that there are others out here continuing to lift you and your families up in prayer. May  God Bless you and you find comfort in his blessings.
~ Kathy

~~*~~

Sandy, I ordered your CD online. It sounds even more beautiful on my stereo than is does over the computer.  Whether stereo or computer, though, it always makes me cry....its so incredibly beautiful and makes me appreciate each and every day with my loved ones so much more,,,,none of us guaranteed a tomorrow and "Little Did She Know" set that thought in my mind all that much more.  Thank you for your work and for making your recording available to the public,.  You truly are and an angel from heaven!!     An adoring fan always, ~ Wally

~~*~~

Hello. I cry EVERY TIME I hear this song. It was a great tribute. By far the best one I've seen. Thank you for doing this. GOD BLESS AMERICA ~ Kim

~~*~~

When I heard this song it mad me cry because it was a terrible thing what happened to us and I will never forget it. Although many people lost love's one you people have to remember that there sole. smile, laughs and everything good about them is still in our minds and hearts! Now I may just be 11 but I do know what I am talking about. I will never forget that day! ~ Sara

~~*~~

This tribute really touched us, my husband serves in the Air Force and it really hit home when that happened.  We never know what life holds for us each day.  We never know when we will say our last goodbyes to our loved ones.  Life is truly precious, live each day to the fullest.  It really makes you appreciate all the people who are police officers, fireman, EMT'S,  and all those who serve in our military,. Thank you to all of you and we are sorry for all those who lost a loved one.  Everyone of them is a hero because they taught us how to love more deeply, give more of ourselves and to stand united as one country.
~ Kathryn

~~*~~

what a wonderful tribute to the many heroes of September 11th.as a brit with many friends in the states it bought tears to my eyes. a friend of mine was in the pentagon when the plane hit, luckily he was on the other side, but it makes you realize just how vulnerable we all are. all the very best for the future, and if possible, give my love to the ones who lost a hero that sad day. ~ Paul

~~*~~

little did she know tribute has helped so many of us heal our hearts since 9_11 thank you for giving us this song ,every time i start to feel  bad or my day goes off  wrong  this comes to my mind .You even melted  my husbands heart which by the way was very cold at one point but when i played this song for him he got very quiet, he calls me from work more often and we talk more . Bless you and your family. ~ Karen

~~*~~

I came across this beautiful song and photo display while cleaning my hard drive at 4:45 in the morning.  I never saw it before.  The message stopped me and caused me to listen.  I have had a difficult time expressing my feelings on our 911 tragedy.  i was touched by this tribute, the music, lyrics and photo's.  Thank you. ~ Edward

~~*~~

Every time I listen to this song, I become very emotional and teary eyed.  I worked on Wall Street as a trader in 1969  as the Towers were being constructed. My husband was an officer in the U.S. Army for 26 years and we knew several people who were in the Pentagon when it was stuck.  So many people  perished on September 11th. So many individuals gave their lives to save others! But let us not forget the men and women who gave their lives during the World War I, World War II, the Korean War but most of all "The Viet Nam War!" The men and women who gave their lives during that war were never hailed as "Heros!" They were spat upon and were not supported by their fellow countrymen. They went to Viet Nam to protect all Americans.  I pray for ALL men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom and "mourn and weep" for the innocent people who were trapped on that fateful day in September....  May God keep all those who still mourn for their loved ones in "the Palm of His Hand" until they are able to stop hurting emotionally...  May God Bless each one of you.
 ~ Susie 

~~*~~

Sandy:  I'm a Viet Nam veteran and a retired Police Officer of 32 years.  Your tribute brought back so many hidden memories, and tears to my eyes.  Thank you for paying tribute to those that made and are willing to make the divine sacrifice for others,  God Bless  ~Brad

~~*~~

I watched with horror and distain at the truly shocking events of that sad day in September 2001 on TV back here in the UK. Every one of those who lost their lives were not just American heroes, but World heroes. The song is so beautiful and touches even the hardest heart strings. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of seeing and hearing your tribute. God bless America !
  ~Kevin - UK

~~*~~

I wanted to thank you for your beautiful site. New York is like my second home. I have stood in between the trade towers, and looked up at them. it was so hard for me to watch them drive by, heaped in a dump truck. This site has touched me, as a 14-year old, so, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. ~Meredith

~~*~~

This site is the greatest gift of all, and that is Love. People from all over the world coming together, pouring out there feelings and showing the love that we all have in our hearts. Just as long as we stand together we will never stand alone, and as long as we stand together we become as one. One that cares, One that Loves, One that will never turn our backs to others, but to only hold out our hand to take some one else's just to let them know we don't stand alone. God Bless ~Danny

~~*~~

I know that my dad would really appreciate this. ~ Rachel O'Brien Age: 12

~~*~~

What a remarkable tribute. I was so touched. I have seen and heard many tributes of this nature since 9-11 but nothing touched like this one did. Thank you. ~ Bob 

~~*~~

Itís beyond words to explain, itís so beautiful, my heart were touched, I canít find the words, except God Bless You

My brother had just walked out of his office the day the plane hit the Pentagon.  They thought a bomb had hit.  Had he been in his office, he would have died.  The floor began to collapse as they started to run.  Many of his office people that day lost their lives.  I was in such a panic until I heard his voice.  This song is one of the most inspiring, uplifting songs I have ever heard.  It has really comforted me.  May God Bless you for doing it. ~ JoAnne

~~*~~

I lost my husband, Scott McGovern on September 11, 2001.  I cannot tell you how many times I have looked at his picture while playing this song and cried.  My husband had just left Cantor Fitzgerald and moved to a job in Tower 2 in July.  He stayed behind as others left so he could "check up on his buddies at Cantor to see if they were okay".  He told that to his sister in a phone call shortly before his building, and floor, were struck.  Thank you so much for this song as a tribute.  My husband, like Todd Beamer, will always be a hero to me. Thank you for the beautiful words.  ~ Jill

~~*~~

I am a Fire Fighters Wife and this tribute that you have done and all your others have made my Family cry when we hear them, but it is Beautiful and my heart goes out to all the Fallen Heroes on that Tragic Day. God Bless Us All.  It is time America Blessed God and I Thank You for the wonderful things that you have done for them all. God Bless you all. ~ Fire Fighters Wife

~~*~~

What a beautiful tribute to all those wives, mothers, sons, daughters, sisters, aunts, who "Kissed their heroes goodbye"!  That was such a tragic day for all of us, but not as tragic as for those who lost "someone", "anyone" they loved or cared about!  Thank you for making this available for all of us to hear and see and, yes, to cry again!  May God bless and touch each of you who have been intimately touched by the events of September 11, 2001. ~ Priscilla

~~*~~

This tells the story of the many people that lost their lives on September 11, 2001. This also tells the story of the many people that are putting their life in harms way to protect this great nation. This site is great place for people to visit when they need a remembrance of what has happened on September 11,2001 and for what our troops are doing all over the world as part of the War of Terrorism. Thank you very much for putting this site out for others to see. God Bless!!! ~ SGT Eric Crist

~~*~~

This has got to be the most beautiful heart felt tribute that one person can give to many, we as Canadians have felt your sorrow since Sept. 11th and we still feel your sorrow, we only pray that each day gets easier and better for you all that has lost someone very special in your loves, we know they maybe be gone but never forgotten because their love will always remain in your hearts as they do for us. We salute all the heroes past and present and will never be forgotten. God Bless you all for standing tall in your horrible tragedy, you have shown us what heroes and bravery is all about   sincerely ~ Sue Petrachek & Family  Canada

~~*~~

I think of the families all the time that lost a loved one in this tragic memory.  I feel that part of my heart is part of yours that is broken.  I look up in the sky at times and pray as plans go by.  I have followed the news, the books, the special shows, and the closeness of this nation is untouchable.  It's wonderful that so many people can come together and help others heal.  I think of the families that lost loved ones all the time.  These new babies especially that have lost one of their parents.  Even though I never met any of the heroes, I cherish who they are and their families are so lucky to carry their piece of the hearts forever.  My thanks goes to all the crews that helped during ground zero to the hospital recipients to the families at times during the holidays.  Some people aren't as fortunate to have close families, and it's very special when a nation can come together and help each other heal.  God bless.~ Nancy

~~*~~

Those who died, are no doubt looking down on this page, and smiling that someone cared so much. I salute whoever created this page. Thank you ~ Amanda

~~*~~

I want to just take a min. to thank everyone of the firefighters all over the U.S.A.. As an 11 year old I probably can't do much but pray for all of the families that lost someone on Sept. 11 2002. ~ SARAH

~~*~~

This is the most beautiful tribute I have ever seen or heard. I related to it as though it were one of my family members. The memories of the twin towers collapsing will be forever in my mind. I can only imagine the horror those who lost their lives went through in their final moments. God Bless each of them and give their families and loved ones the faith and strength to carry on. ~ Jack

~~*~~

I remember exactly where I was when I saw the plane crash into the second Twin Tower. I was only 15 at the time, in one of my history classes at my high school. People were running down the hallway crying, and I just was in complete shock. Throughout all that has happened to America as a whole, I feel we have all grown for the better. I personally want to thank you for the beautiful tribute you have put together. It truly helps to depict our true angels that will forever be watching over us. God Bless you, and thanks again for the beautiful healing touch you added to my life.
~ Amy Stone From Greene

WOW! That is a really cool collage, 9/11 really touched my life also, just like it did so many. "We will never forget the day, one year ago when our country was attacked by a cowardly act of terrorism. Planes crashed into our twin towers and the pentagon, killing thousands of our American citizens who died of a cowardly act. Before that day we all went on with our everyday lives like nothing bad could ever happen thinking we live in America home of the brave, and land of the free. Even though we are still brave and free, we are stronger because we have become united as one. We have learned not to take life for granted, because there may not be a tomorrow. Although families were ripped at the seam, it has also brought a lot of families together. We are united as one, and will stand together in this war, and fight to the fullest, knowing that we are America, and we can stand united together, as ONE!!!!" God Bless America. That is just a little something that I wrote in remembrance of 9/11 ~Steven

My Dad is in the National Guard and he is going away for a year. I just want to say thank-you for this wonderful tribute, It means so much to my Family and I. ~Rachael Sturgeon

When I first heard about this song from one of my friends I figured what?? I mean Little did she know?? That's nothing to do with Sept.11!!! But once I heard it my eyes filled with tears and I cried for an hour! I really love this song and I will never forget how it effected me! And I recommend anyone who comes to this site to listen to it! Love Always Jennifer H (Georgia) God BLESS all! ~ Jennifer

I am a world war II vet from the old Army Air Corps and realizing the enormity of our loss in New York, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. causes such emotional response within me until I do have to respond. My adult step son called from Dallas to inform me of the first plane hit and I turned on in time to see the second plane hit. It was bone chilling, unbelievable. I thank you so much for the opportunity to share these very emotional feelings with so many of our people, I feel the greatest in the world. ~ Jessse of Lake Whitney, Texas

Your tribute has touched my life in a tremendous way. "Little did she know" just serves as another reminder that we should be thankful and not take for granted how important each passing moment is in our lives.~ Kristy from Kentucky

GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU! AND EVERY DAY THAT YOU AWAKEN REMEMBER THEM IN YOUR HEARTS AND PRAYERS AS WE WILL NEVER KNOW WHEN THAT KISS TO YOUR HERO MAY BE THE NEXT! ~ Melanie

~~*~~

This had to be one of the most devastating times in our times. We have so many heroes to pay tribute too. It certainly makes you think about saying and doing kind things for your loved ones, never knowing if you will get another chance. My son lived in New York and loves the City and this was so hard for him too. May God be with all the families of the victims this Holiday Season. This is a Beautiful Website. ~ Donna

~~*~~

I was really moved by the song and the picture collage. They are both beautiful. ~ Stephanie Davis

~~*~~

You have touched my heart! In some ways your site helps the healing, yet at the same time, your work keeps me ever mindful of what others have suffered. I continue to hurt for them and continue to be so proud to be an American. God bless those who have suffered so many losses, and God Bless our President as he works to make the world a better place to live in. Sincerely, Linda from Texas

Our hearts are broken forever. A friend that I haven't seen in years was killed that day. His name is Dennis Cross he was Batillion Chief in the Bedford Styvastant area of Brooklyn. His body wasn't recovered for a week. His poor family must have gone through hell. I went to school with his wife JoAnn Doria Cross. Originally from Queens Village, Hollis area in New York. We went to Martin Van Buren High School together in the 60's. We used to sing together! Thank you for the beautiful song, they are all Heroes. ~ Grace, Pompano Beach, Fl.

What a wonderful tribute and a beautiful rendition of the song that has touched people from every walk of life. All I can say is MORE MORE. ~ Jim

~~*~~

Thank you for that tribute. The attacks occurred on my birthday and I was in the hospital. I cried all day. I am from New York and use to walk trough the trade tower site when it was being constructed. God bless all the people who died in that horror of a tragedy as well as the families that they left behind. ~ Barbara

~~*~~

Beautiful song and a wonderful tribute to all the men and women heroes of that fateful day. My heart goes out to all the families who lost a loved one that day. I know first hand what it's like to lose someone close to you that you love. Every time I hear a sad song like this, it always brings tears to my eyes. I didn't know anyone who died in the towers on Sept. 11, but I still feel so sad whenever a song like this plays. After losing my father, I guess I can just imagine how the families feel. It takes time, but they will hold their heads high again. God's with you. ~ Kathy & Joe 

~~*~~

I would like you to know ,it is people like you who make me proud to be an American someone who sees the pain and does something to help by offering not empty sympathy but truly heartfelt emotional support you embody the very best of what it means to support your country and those we have lost I am sure it means more than they can say to the families of the victims it is a beautiful song and i hope you do well in the future god bless you for your efforts and may you find continued support for this venture as the healing continues long after the memorials are built and everyone forgets. ~ Cheri

~~*~~

This is a WONDERFUL TRIBUTE!!! Little did some of those know, that when their loved one left for work that morning they wouldn't RETURN. :( Just goes to show you it can happened to anyone at anytime. So while your loved ones are STILL HERE, let them know how much they mean to you and how much you love them. My HEART goes out to ALL the victims and the victims families. may God comfort you all, and may you find peace once again. (((HUGZ))) This *Little did she know song* touched my soul and made me cry. They were *TRULY OUR HEROES* God Bless us ALL and God Bless the USA!!! I send my Luv and prayers to you ALL! ~ Carol Sue (Estes) Torres, Washington State.

I was married on 9-15-02.  The days just before my wedding were not spent worrying about the now unimportant details.  All of that was now trivial to the crisis in New York.  Our anniversary will always be a remembrance to the people who lost their loved ones and a day that I can be grateful for every day with my family and friends.  The day that I first heard this song I was lost in tears.  It took me 4 months to find this song after many lengthy searches.  It has been worth the wait.  I will always remember marrying my husband while so many others lost theirs.  One of the angels truly helped inspire this song.  There is no doubt in my mind that this song is blessed. ~ Kathleen Nichols

~~*~~

What a wonderful tribute.  Each time I hear this song, it brings a tear to my eyes.  The healing process will be long and hard, but this song helps buffer the pain.  Only time will heal.  My prayers are with each and every person affected by the tragedy.  God Bless America.... ~ Tonya Thornton

~~*~~

I lost my father in the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.  A photo from his funeral was used in this video and is still on the home page collage.  This was truly the most beautiful and touching tribute I have seen.  It completely captures the feelings all of us had on the terrible day, but most especially I believe that it has helped the rest of America, and the world, to understand the loss that 3,000 families had that day.  Thank you. ~ Kathleen Maude Koehler

~~*~~

This was such a beautiful Tribute. Thank you, Sandy, for sharing. ~ Bill Baxter, DTM

~~*~~

This tribute is a good act of respect to all those who lost their lives on September 11. Let us pray to God that those affected by the disaster will be comforted, and that those who brought this upon us be brought to justice. ~ Alex

Our son joined the US Marines on Sept 10, 2001. After the events on Sept 11th he stated," at least they didn't do it while I was swearing in because they probably would have stopped the process for that day and I'd just have to go through it again later." He is now in the US Marines and graduated June 20, 2002 and is being deployed to Iraq. We are so proud of him but this site reminds both my wife and I of how lucky and blessed we are to live in the US. Our values and tributes mean so much to everyone around the world and this site in an good reminder of these things. Thanks again for this site! God Bless America and all the troops helping defend freedom all around the world. ~ Bill

Dear Mrs. Foley & Sandy....this touched my heart so deeply...I am still mourning for our dear fellow American's who lost their lives on 9/11/01 and still praying for all the families who lost their loved ones and for the other heroes, and for our country also...God Bless You in this heroic effort you have made to still touch our hearts, and I will never forget all the hero's or that terrible day. Love & Prayers to all of you, Hannah

My friend Stephanie sent me this and I had heard it on the radio before, and had not thought much of it, but then I saw this video. I saw the tears in people's eyes. I saw the flowers. I saw September 11th.  These images and this song have touched me truly and deeply. I greatly appreciate this tribute.  ~ Kelsey

~~*~~

I just want to tell you thank you for making this page.  As a service man's wife it's greatly appreciated even we had lives lost when the world trade centers were attacked. September 2001 will never be forgotten and GOD BLESS AMERICA  ~ Susan

~~*~~

Sandy, My husband spent the year 2002 guarding prisoners at Guantanomo Bay, Cuba as a result of 9/11.  During this past year, every time I felt sorry for myself because he was not here with us. I went to your web site to remind me why he was away.  Every time I did this, I was proud to know he was serving his country and those who lost their lives on 9/11 was not meaningless. ~ Lisa

~~*~~

I feel every aspect of your story and feel it and everything about it from my heart. The tragedy will never be forgotten by anyone. The story you have here is the best I have ever read by any site I have been to. As a veteran and on disability myself, this is a song and story that touches so many. The people involved in this will never be forgotten ever and everyone should be very proud of what was done here. The world is a small place and so many take it for granted what we can do and what can be done for the love and support of tragedies such as this one. you have done an excellent job and definitely have touched my heart with tears of joy for you and all involved. The rainbow has no end as this wont either and hope for the most wonderful recovery of all. God Bless you and your family!! ~ Dale Adams

~~*~~

Thank you so much for sharing this with so many countless Americans! I was touched so much that I even ordered the CD and I listen to the song every day. MY family is near tears when we hear it! AS for the families of those who were lost that tragic day, we applaud each and everyone of them for their courage and bravery over the past 1 1/2 years! THEY ARE ALSO HEROES! For all the countless infants who will never meet their fathers, may they come to know that their daddy led a flock of new angels into heaven and he will watch over them from up above! May they also know that even though they never met him, a part of their daddy's spirit lives within them and that one day they will be reunited! I hope and pray that everyone else who visits this website and hears the song will think back to that life changing day, when terrorists tried to divide us! The truth is, little did they know that we would come together as a stronger nation, and stand united! May God bless America! ~ anonymous

I just wanted to say that the tribute "Little did she know" really touched my heart, I cried every time I saw it because it reminded me of the loss of so many loved ones. God Bless All. ~ Mandie

~~*~~

I just came back here to try to find the tribute and found that it is not available anymore. I know I can't be the only one who wants to see it here again!! I can't tell you how I felt on 9/11...nor can I tell you how I felt when I first heard this song. Bro, you know how much I missed working with ya when I came out here....1400 miles away, and I still remember gearing up next to you for the calls. Still gearing up when the tone drops out here, but man it just isn't the same knowing you're not here anymore. Thanks for showing me the ropes....every time we go now I think of you. I don't think I ever told you face to face how much you mean to me....wish I had time to tell you before all this happened. I went up to the site after they cleaned everything up, just hoping I would somehow feel closer to you. Keep on Keepin on bro....see ya when I see ya Jon

~~*~~

I too wish to thank you from the bottom of my heart for this beautiful touching tribute to the many who lost their lives on that terrible day. I pray God will comfort, strengthen and bless the many loved ones left behind. God bless you for this amazing tribute. Life is so precious and taken for granted so often. Tears have been shed by the thousands and tears will continue but through faith tears can also heal and comfort. My prayers are with everyone for we all had something taken away from us but we are one country under God and we shall come together as one country under God. May the Lord bless and keep you in His tender loving care. ~ Diane

~~*~~

That was an amazing video and it touched me deeply. I am a fellow new yorker myself currently serving in the military. No matter how much time goes by I still cry just as hard as the day it happened whenever I watch it. My heart goes out to all those who lost loved ones. Thank you! ~ Sr A GORDEN-PROUD TO SERVE MY COUNTRY

~~*~~

This video touched my heart in a way that NO other video has ever done. I cried so many times listening to it and it made me remember who easily life can be taken from us and how much I needed to let my family know how much they mean to me. Thank you for sharing this video and helping us remember the lives lost of 9 /11 Sara

~~*~~

My 13 yr. old daughter Ashley and myself want to thank u for this song and message. We have said many prayers for the families of all our lost friends, they all became like family overnight as we prayed and cried with the rest of the country ~ Bob Jackson


~~*~~

Out of all the memories that I have of the events that took place in the early morning hours of September,11 2001, the one that sticks out the most did not occur that day. Being in the Marine Corps I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of interesting people, but none touched my heart more than a 7yr old girl, of whom to this day I don't know her name. I was working as Military Policeman when we crossed each others paths... no words were exchanged between the youth and I but her mother did ask one favor.. the little girl wanted to hug me... so I bent down and she gave me the biggest hug of my life... her mother said that she had seen the event of September 11.... and was having nightmares..but she wanted to tell Me (the Marines) thanks for keeping her safe from the bad people.... and just as fast as we met she was gone but I knew that the hug that was shared between us had changed both of our lives. ~ Michael

~~*~~

Thank you for making this page. I was so touched by it. It is such an awesome way to remember all the heroes of that horrific day. Thank you and God Bless America! ~ Alisha

~~*~~

As a 14 year old girl, it is hard to imagine things such as 9/11 actually happening! I was horrified at the videos on t.v., but i never really realized how real this was to so many people! When i saw this video and heard this song I sobbed! i then knew how this had touched so many people so hard! This made me realize that these people are the real heros of the world! Thank- You for honoring these people, and for bring us to see the truth about 9/11! ~ Kelsey

~~*~~

This is such a beautiful tribute to the fallen Heroes' of 9-11. It really touched my heart, and I wish there was something I could say that would ease their pain, because I know they still feel it. Just know my prayers and the Countrys ' are with you. God Bless and Keep You. ~ Shirley

~~*~~

I want to say that this message really touched my heart. I was trying to locate the song but its not on here anymore. This really meant a lot. My husband is serving in the Marine Corps and has been for a little over 4 years now. I am so proud of him and the rest of the military out there who are serving our country. Thank you for making this song it really meant a lot and I will pray for those families lost on 9/11. love all yall ~ Angela

~~*~~

The most touching out there I shall never forget it. Nor shall I ever forget our children who now stand tall for all of us. God be with each and every one of our children so soon turned into grown men and women. God Bless the usa and our defenders of freedom and peace. ~ Gloria

~~*~~

THANK YOU FOR THE TRIBUTE. OUR FALLEN HEROES DIED DOING WHAT THEY LOVED. THEY WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED NO MATTER WHAT. THEY PUT THEIR LIVES FIRST AND WENT INTO BURNING BUILDINGS TO SAVE OUR AMERICANS LIVES. I AM SO PROUD OF THEM. THEY KNEW WHAT RISKS THEY WERE TAKEN BUT THEY DIDN'T CARE. WE LOST SOME VERY SPECIAL HEROES ON 9-11-01. WE EVEN HAVE HEROES OVER SEAS RIGHT NOW THAT WE HAVE TO REMEMBER. MY HUSBAND IS A FIREFIGHTER AND WAS IN THE ARMY. I KNOW THAT WE LOST SOME LOVED ONES. THAT IS WHY THIS TRIBUTE MEANS SO MUCH TO ME. JUST KEEP IN MIND THAT WE LOST SOME VERY INNOCENT PEOPLE ON 9-11-01 THAT DIDN'T DESERVE IT. NOW IT BROUGHT US BACK TO WAR AGAIN. WE LOVE OUR SOLDIERS AND THEY WILL MAKE IT HOME SAFE AFTER THEIR WORK IS DONE. ~ Nicole

~~*~~

In memory of my brother David ~ Jonathon

This video really inspired me to thank others for their support for fighting for our country. Even though I was 11 when it happened I understand now what was going on. I am 13 now but it still hurts knowing that so many people died that day and that so many people are dying out in the fields of Iraq. Just because they hurt us don't mean that they can take our freedom. We are the USA and NO ONE and i mean NO ONE can take our Freedoms away. ~ Miranda

~~*~~

How humbling yet so undeniably moving to see the wonderful tribute put together by you, I am from Australia as well and would have to say we shared your sorrow and heartbreak only to have so many of our young and not so young people taken so savagely and cruelly from us in the Bali incident...the swines knew where to hit us right where our kids go to play...gentle and beautiful unspolied Bali, never to be the same again. thank you so much this tribute is worthy of such praise...Kez from downunder..

~~*~~

Your tribute truly touched me the first time I saw it. I was there (WTC) on 9/11. Like so many others, I was lucky enough to have left those towers before anyone knew how much trouble there was to be minutes later. I am saddened to have lost friends, acquaintances and fellow commuters. Your tribute has put a voice to our hearts. Bless you and all those who are fighting for us now. ~ MaryAnn

~~*~~

Your voice is beautiful and your messages are very powerful. ~ Ilene

~~*~~

I just want to say how touched i was when i read this tribute, i found it very hard to fight my tears away when i was reading it. Thank you who ever made this page, I think it is a real big help to those who lost someone on September 11th god bless you all - Naomi
