||In response to the
terrorists attacks upon America there was courage, there was heroism,
there was sacrifice, there was compassion and there was wisdom. First, however,
and this is the virtue from whence all those others come, there was humility.
From the office workers who helped each other escape, to the firefighters who
responded, from those trapped in the towers above, to the airline passengers in
the skies over Western Pennsylvania.
It was a day when the human
virtues and verities of wisdom, triumphed over the truth of the hatred and
intolerance and death and destruction the terrorists brought out of the
On September 11, 2001, America as a country, as a people, and as a
way of life was attacked. The horrible acts of a few took the lives of many and
left the rest of us with an opportunity. An opportunity for us as a people to
unite and rise up to our call to save lives. On that day while loved ones were
made victims, heroes were born. While the towers burned, souls surged.
Selfishness fell to sacrifice, fear was met with bravery, and hate died at the
hands of love. On that day we as Americans seized our righteousness, and united
in hope and determination for our fellow man. Firefighters raced up stairwells
all the way to the fire floor. Police Officers pulled out the injured. EMT's
and paramedics treated people and transported the injured only to return to
preform their duty. 9/11 operators and dispatchers stayed on the phone with the
trapped until the phones went silent. While nurses and doctors worked to cheat
death one life at a time. Many were saved. All gave some, some gave all. Many
people gave their lives to save people they didn't even know. 430 public safety
personnel were lost including 343 fire fighters, 63 police officers, and 8 EMT
/ paramedics. They made the ultimate sacrifice. Thousands united in rescue
efforts and millions began to offer their support in countless ways. Our loved
ones and our way of life was attacked, and we responded with what makes us
Americansstrength, love, and sacrifice.
Now you have an
opportunity to show your respect and patriotism with the purchase of
collectible coins. And: Help raise money for charities... one coin at a
This site and organization was
created with the idea that something could be done to help the victims and the
charities that support the families that were directly or indirectly affected
by the events that unfolded on 9/11/2001. It will also serve as a reminder that
we will NEVER FORGET...
1000's of hours have been spent on the design
and production of the coins. More hours were directed to creating this web site
and setting up the operation. Loans were taken out and money was supplied from
my paycheck. Currently the business end of this venture is almost 25,000.00 in
the red. Thousands of dollars have been applied the charities, some small, some
large. Coins have been given to organizations as well as people that have
supported public safety personnel as gifts.
I have NOT taken one dollar
for my time invested. I run this operation on my free time by myself and have
my wife run to the post office if I am at work and can't make it. More time has
been volunteered to bring 9/11 memorials to San Diego and now to help bring a
memorial across North America to New York.
Additional money has been
donated from the business as well as personal funds to a few charities that
total almost 50,000.00.
I take offense to a few uninformed people that
have made unwarranted comments about my bank account getting the benefits from
the tragedy as well as the implied distasteful fact that I am taking advantage
of the 9/11 victims and have used this as a personal opportunity. I am a Fire
Fighter Paramedic and would not feel right about this if I were not donating
the money to responsible charities.
The agreement I have with the
charities is non binding and without a legal contract. I do have written
permission to collect money for each organization and this "commercial
co-venture" does not impact the foundations in any financial negative method.
No funding was acquired to produce the coins. Nor does this agreement endorse
the coins nor do I endorse the foundation other than supporting their
