The entire world has joined together, both online and offline, in its grief and response to the attacks to the U.S. September 11, 2001. Below are discussion lists and community sites that reflect some of how we're coming together in response to the 9/11 attacks to the World Trade Center (WTC), the Pentagon, Flight 93, and related terrorist attacks.

While I'm not adding to or further developing this section, if you find any dead or redirected links, please contact me with the relevant information, and I'll update or remove those items. Thank you!

The World Community

A Moment of Silence, in respect and memory for the victims, families, and colleagues of the attack 09-11-01Sites all over the world are coming together in a Moment of Silence [1], community, tributes, and to share information, express concern and offer love, support, prayers, and community.

We can show the world how we are all interconnected, that we’re one world, one community. We will become stronger, not weaker. We will not retreat but will gather together. Terrorism will not defeat us. Instead we will gain renewed energy.

If you have a site paying tribute in some way, here are some sites where you can have yours listed.

If you have a community site to be added to the above list, please contact me and I’ll add it to the above list. Let’s spread the word. Thank you.

Others Coming Together off the Web

Communities all over the world are helping out in many ways. Volunteers are selflessly giving of their time and effort. And prayer communities are gathering as well.

"If we are to know a better and more secure world, then through our thoughts and actions we must counteract the negativity that seeks to undermine it."

Thanks to Paul Smith, Life in the Bus Lane for creating and contributing the animated Moment of Silence image above.

Attack on America

“But peace does not rest in charters and covenants alone. It lies in the hearts and minds of all people. And if it is cast out there, then no act, no pact, no treaty, no organization can hope to preserve it without the support and the wholehearted commitment of all people. So let us not rest all our hopes on parchment and on paper; let us strive to build peace, a desire for peace, a willingness to work for peace, in the hearts and minds of all our people. I believe that we can. I believe the problems of human destiny are not beyond the reach of human beings.
[09/20/63 New York, President John F. Kennedy]
