About Never Forget


About the Tribute

The animation was originally inspired by an anonymously-produced PowerPoint slideshow making the rounds on the Internet and via emails after 9/11. I gathered some of the graphics and produced the prototype of the graphic to display on my personal website. After refinements and improvements suggested by Damsel and others, it appears as it does today. This is the graphic seen in the right sidebar depicting the attacks on America by Islamic terrorists.

In August of 2005, I made the animation available to anyone. The offer was only taken by a few sites at first, but since then, many more have begun displaying the animation. As of December 2005, there were over 200 sites linking to it, and that number has been growing since. Sites in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK and Italy (and several other countries) display it on their pages.

Damsel and I believe that the War on Terror is the most important issue before the American People and our Allies. The presence of this graphic on our site indicates our unwillingness to forget what happened and what still needs to be done. It makes us very proud to see our graphic on so many sites and gives us comfort knowing there are so many like-minded people in the blogosphere willing to display the graphic.

Tribute Statistics

The statistics counter in the sidebar just below the tribute indicates the approximate number of times that the tribute has been delivered to websites all over the nation and the world. Watch it for a few seconds to see it increment each time the tribute gets downloaded.

    Thanks, patd95, and Merry Christmas to you and yours as well.

    As of now, the graphic has been displayed over 2.1 million times – amazing. It’s an indicator of the high traffic levels in the blogosphere; there are so many people looking to blogs to get accurate news and right-thinking opinions which seem to be scarce in the mainstream media.
