    911 The events of September 11th brought forth a flood of artist responses.

I was speechless. It was surely the most horrifying event in my lifetime. The terrorist attacks on the three locations of the Eastern United States took countless lives, and threatened the spirit of our nation. And I found myself fumbling for words.

And so I took up a search for words to borrow, and what resulted was the tribute video below ā€“ a video honoring the citizens of the free world who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

Iā€™m sharing a message of compassionate non-violence, a message that Mahatma Gandhi so eloquently delivered.

"Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man." ā€“ Mahatma Gandhi

The images are all property of Reuters and AP Photo, and the music is a beautiful song by Hans Zimmer from The Thin Red Line Motion Picture Soundtrack.

ahhhh... sure, but....

...i guess the human rights violations will just go away if we ignore them, right? and don't go thinking that there was tremendous peace and harmony before we (and plenty of other countries - russia, UK, etc...) got involved in the Middle East. there's been war and famine and religious massacres for centuries. it's a place that's hard to stay away from. i think it's fairly clear that the proper solution doesn't involve turning the other cheek.

YES BUT THINK A LITTLE DEEPER

I AGREE THAT THE WTC ATTACK WAS TERRIBLE AND THOSE RESPONSIBLE ARE UGLY EXTREMISTS. HOWEVER AS ONE WHO KNOWS ABOUT THE MIDDLEEAST MAY I SUGGEST THAT ALL AMERICANS LOOK AT OUR ACTIONS IN THE ME. OVER A MILLION PEOPLE HAVE DIED BECAUSE OF OUR BLOCKADES AGAINST IRAQ.WE HAVE POLICED THE WORLD WHERE EVER WE HAVE INTERESTS.WE HAVE SUPPORTED A PUPPET REGIME IN EGYPT WHICH HAS A LONG LIST OF HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS. IT IS ONLY A AMOUNT OF TIME BEFORE MORE PEOPLE RAGE AGAINST OUR POLITICS. I AM PURE AMERICAN AND I LOVE OUR COUNTRY BUT COME ON PEOPLE TAKE AN INTEREST IN OTHER PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD.

Gave perfect 10 because it was very heart touching

i am sad yes but it's so very true i would've loved to cry during this especially the doll scene it really pained me to see that and knowing Osama is behind it i wan't to just kill him for doing something so terrible so violent that he does it to make himself look powerful but in the end like the movie said "There may be tyrants and murderers, and for a time , they may seem invincible, but in the end, they always fail."

for reasons i don't understand

it was ok at first. then i saw Mahatma Ghandi's name and the music suddenly came together with the pictures and the words and it stopped being music, pictures and words and became a tribute... just like the title says. it didn't move me to tears, make me angry or proud. it just made me think about things i've thought about before and realize i'm not the only one who has thought that way.
