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 support us in our time of grief. 
While many of the piece are emotional and moving they also reflect the kindness, willingness to help and to come together that people felt at that moment.  
While this was always in important document of what was happening...it is now even more so as it is not a reflection but a real time compilation of where we were in 2001.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I have enjoyed being it's caretaker over the years.
