I have received my bracelet and have not taken it off since I opened the package. The bracelet is much appreciated and is a beautiful tribute. I wanted something that I could wear every day to remind me of the lives lost on that tragic day. I did not personally know anyone in the towers, but every person who died, survived or aided others on that day deserves recognition. I want to always remember how quickly lives can change and I wanted a physical representation of my memory. Thank you so much for giving me the closure that I needed. I now have my own way of dealing with September 11, and I appreciate your site more than I can say. Thank you, Melinda B.

For My Schoolmate Sean Tallon
I am in the Army and my Unit is deploying to Afghanistan this weekend. Sean Tallon and I were in High School together at Fordham Prep in the Bronx, NY. He was a few years older than me but I will always remember that he was a great friend. - Amal A.

For My Brother In the Navy
I purchased these bracelets because my brother is in the armed forces (Navy) and they deserve to be remembered for the heroic actions and because the 9-11 attacks had an impact on my life though not directly. I also wanted to show my support in the fight against terrorism and to remember those who graciously gave their lives to save the life of others. I hope these bracelets are a tradition that keeps on growing to show how people never forget. - Crystal R.

In Honor of Diane Lipari Take From Us at the WTC
I received my Memorial Bracelet in honor of Diane Lipari who was taken from us during the attack on the World Trade Center. This bracelet has special meaning to me because she was the sister of a very dear friend of mine, Lorraine G., who I have only know through phone conversations over the past 10 years or so.
Next week, I will be flying to New York on business and will finally meet Lorraine and another dear friend Helen V. for the first time. Every day we remember all those who lost their lives during the 911 attack and hold them near to our hearts and pray for them and those they have left behind. God Bless America.

To Pay My Respects to the Firefighters Who Died on Sept. 11th.
I use to be a cadet/intern for the Arlington County Fire Department and I saw how hard a firefighter job can be sometimes and I wanted to get a bracelet because I wanted to pay my respects to the firefighters who died on September 11, 2001.
To Not Forget The Pain We All Felt on that Horrible Day
My bracelet is beautiful. It's perfect and I wear it everyday. I ordered a bracelet because I live an hour north of the city and being so close and such an easy commute, a few people I know were in or around the World trade center. My beautiful city and its heart were destroyed. We must stay strong and we mustn't forget the pain we all felt that horrible day. We will not forget. But we will fight to bring the people who did this to justice. Thank you for your memorial bracelet it means a lot to me.
