NOV 30  THANKSGIVING REFLECTION


posted by admin on November 30, 2013 11:25 | under General



I remember walking up 1 st avenue and everyone being kind and stores having water out for the walkers. I remember thinking if this is it I should get dim sum as I am in China town and a cannoli in little Italy because we shouldn't take anything for granted - Tom yesterday at Thanksgiving reflecting on 9/11 when heard about this book

SEP 11  WHAT DO YOU REMEMBER ABOUT TODAY 12 YEARS AGO?


posted by admin on September 11, 2013 10:39 | under General



We all remember where we were and what we were doing . I cannot imagine that I could envision how my life would change due to the events of 9/11. As I drove down the West Side Highway to rehearsal I watched the towers in disbelief . Putting this book together I was struck not primarily by the tragedy but by the remarkable love and courage we had for each other. I am thrilled that our initial responses now live in this book as a reminder of those heroic and caring endeavors. In a few weeks Standing Tall will be in bookstores and I hope all can experience how we all have indeed continued to stand tall.

I was recently interviewed.  I loved this introduction which was used and wished to share it as it is a wonderful description of Standing Tall!  Thank you Toni for this lovely introduction:
 
There is now something new and special for Lynn Manuell coming out shortly, which has taken 12 years to birth!  Lynn has conceived the idea of a book whose labor pains were begun from the ashes of 9/11!  She has named it Standing Tall.
 
Based upon Lynn's and other's journals, self reflections and impressions...it is a piece of American history during the immediate months following September 11, 2001.
 
Stories, emails, conversations, letters from so many were lovingly preserved and woven into a tapestry of memories. Lynn's intention now is that this tribute book find its rightful place in 9/11 original sources.

JUN 24  WELCOME TO STANDING TALL'S WEBSITE

Welcome to the Standing Tall website.  I cannot tell you how honored I am to have been able to put together this book, which has become a piece of history.  It's purpose is to raise money for 9/11 charities.
 
This is not an ordinary book, and while I wrote parts of it and edited it - it is really a collection of emails, journals, creative writings and articles all prompted by the events of 9/11/01.  The first entries are from that day and are from people in the towers and around the world.  It progresses through the journals and writings that people created in response to the events taking place as a result of 9/11.  
 
The book includes entries from children, pacifists, military personnel, the average person in NYC and around the globe.  It reflects on the memorial activities, the rescue efforts and the world-wide commitment to ...
