  1. 1. September 11th- 10 Years Later Darryl Heron
  2. 2. September 11th- A Decade Later <ul><li>As we approach the 10th Anniversary of September 11th, it is hard to belive that a decade has passed </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes it seems that it hasn‘t been that long </li></ul><ul><li>Sometimes it seems that it has been a whole different world and life (this is certainly true) </li></ul><ul><li>Many people have progressed pretty far in their healing </li></ul><ul><li>Others are scarred for life and might not ever truly heal </li></ul>
  3. 3. Purpose of this presentation.. <ul><li>I‘ve put this presenation together as my own tribute and way of reflecting on the tenth anniversary </li></ul><ul><li>Like many other Americans (and other people of the world) I was profoundly effected on this day and feel that we must never forget </li></ul><ul><li>I feel that we should celebrate and honor the lives of the victims and make the world a better place </li></ul>

  7. 7. Keith Roma <ul><li>Keith Roma was 27 and with Fire Patrol </li></ul><ul><li>The Fire Patrol wasn’t under the jurisdiction of the FDNY, but he was called to the World Trade Center and fell under orders of the FDNY then </li></ul><ul><li>His daughter Samantha was seven at the time of his death. </li></ul><ul><li>He died along with nine people that he was trying to save. </li></ul><ul><li>Breaking the 9-11 myth describes efforts to get Keith Roma listed among the official FDNY September 11th victims list </li></ul><ul><li>Fire Patrol’s website has a tribute to Keith Roma along with other fire fighters. There is a nice remix of Arms of the Angels - Sara McLaughlin </li></ul>

  9. 9. Joseph P. Henry <ul><li>Joseph P. Henry was 25 and with Ladder 21 out of Manhattan </li></ul><ul><li>I was drawn to him when I read “I was trapped in building one for an hour. I would not be alive if it weren't for the firemen who unlocked and broke down the doors to the stairwells. I want Joseph's family to know that when the time comes and I get married and have a family, I will name my first born boy after him. He was an amazing person and I will forever keep him and his family in my prayers.” Vanessa Sierra, college classmate </li></ul><ul><li>Julia Corrales (his girlfriend) wrote “Joe Henry worked as a Fireman for only 11 months before he was taken from us on September 11, 2001.” </li></ul><ul><li>Joseph and his girlfriend had planned to go to Ireland on October 19, 2001 </li></ul>
  10. 10. Karl Henri Joseph <ul><li>Karl Henri Joseph was 25 and working from Brooklyn. He was an EMT. </li></ul><ul><li>His family came to America from Hati, he liked Hati but America was his home (isn‘t this the case for so many that have chased the American Dream from all corners of the world!) </li></ul><ul><li>Michael Beehler, who went through the fire academy with Karl said that “He had a great smile and a great laugh,&quot; </li></ul>

Project 2996 <ul><li>„ On September 11, 2006, over 3500 volunteer bloggers joined together for a tribute to the victims of 9/11.“ </li></ul><ul><li>„ Over the last 10 years we’ve heard the names of the killers, and all about the victim’s deaths. This is a chance to learn about and celebrate those who died. Forget the murderers, they don’t deserve to be remembered. But some people who died that day deserve to be remembered–2,996 people. „ </li></ul><ul><li>From 2996 @ http ://project2996.wordpress.com/2011/04/30/2996/ </li></ul>
  13. 13. Gone But Not Forgotten <ul><li>Through Project 2996 I‘ve come to know a little bit about the lives of Keith Roma, Christopher Santora, Joseph P. Henry, Karl Henri Joseph, Dana Hannon, and David W Laychak. </li></ul><ul><li>I‘m glad to have had this opportunity and somehow my life is a little bit richer for the experience. As long as memories of you all live on in family, friends, and in the lives that you have touched, you‘ll all never be forgotten </li></ul>
  14. 14.

  15. 15.

  16. 16. A Different Kind of Social Network <ul><li>You might have heard hear of MySpace and Facebook, well Prepare New York is a different kind of social network </li></ul><ul><li>It is hosted on Ning, which allows you to create your own social network. I‘m a member at a couple of different networks </li></ul>
  17. 17. An Interfaith Effort <ul><li>In a newsletter that I received after joining they referred to themselvs as &quot; Prepare New York is a coalition of New York based interfaith organizations.. who are committed to preparing New York City (and the nation) for the 10-year anniversary of 9/11 by promoting civil dialogue, education about religious pluralism, support for the Muslim community, and coordinating events on the day of the anniversary” </li></ul><ul><li>Interfaith this means that Christians, Jews, and Muslims are working together (other groups are welcome to join as well!) </li></ul><ul><li>I‘m filled with hope when I think of what more interfaith projects like this can accomplish </li></ul>
  18. 18. Ribbons of Hope <ul><li>One of the projects promoted by Prepare New York is Ribbons of Hope </li></ul><ul><li>According to the web site…“ Ribbons of Hope is an interactive, community-created art project designed to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the September 11th attacks by inviting people of all backgrounds, religions, ages and races to tie a ribbon inscribed with a message of hope and healing for New York City.“ </li></ul><ul><li>It is just a short walk from Ground Zero, alongside the Gardens of Remembrance in Battery Park </li></ul><ul><li>This event is planned from September 9-12, 2011 </li></ul><ul><li>http://prepareny.ning.com/ribbons </li></ul>
  19. 19. Check out Prepare New York <ul><li>Why not check out Prepare New York and see what you can learn and share. </li></ul><ul><li>There are plenty of activities that they‘ve been promoting and plenty with more on deck. I hope to see you there </li></ul>
  20. 20. Do You Have Pictures That I Can Publish? <ul><li>Do you have pictures that I can use in future articles and posts about September 11th of New York, the Pentagon, and of the victims, or anything that can add more visual flare?
