September 11, 2001 is a day that will be remembered in the United States for decades to come, if not forever. The day that America was attacked by terrorists and nearly 3,000 innocent citizens and foreign-born residents were murdered has been memorialized by the citizens of cities and towns all over the U.S., and indeed in many countries around the world. This book of photography (and some history) focuses on just four important September 11 memorials – memorials of national importance because they are closely aligned with the events of that awful day. Unfortunately, many people may never get around to visiting all of the national memorials, and that's a shame because each is, in its own way, a fine work of art as well as a heartfelt remembrance of loved ones.The National 9/11 Memorials – A Photographic Guide takes you on an up-close, and personal visit to the three memorials run by the federal government and another run by the Massachusetts Port Authority in Boston. The book brings to you, in one place, dozens of beautiful color photographs along with pertinent background information about each memorial. The photographs and information gathered in this book may inspire (hopefully) the reader to go out on his or her own journey to visit these moving memorials, or the reader may just appreciate them within the book's pages. In addition, The National 9/11 Memorials includes the historical background, timeline information concerning the terrorist attacks and the responses in the ensuing years, and a list of victims of the tragic day. Never before has a book brought together so many photographs of these four September 11 memorials and information about them in one place so that the reader can participate in the honoring of the victims of the worst terrorist attack ever against the American people. It is humbly hoped that The National 9/11 Memorials – A Photographic Guide will spread awareness of these beautiful and heart-felt tributes and contribute to the everlasting preservation of remembrances of the lives of our lost brothers and sisters in the terrorist attacks of 2001. As the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City states on a wall near the victims' remains, “No Day Shall Erase You from the Memory of Time”. This is the object of every 9/11 memorial, and the object of The National 9/11 Memorials – A Photographic Guide.
For thousands of years humanity has been told that grief is a necessary part of life, that deep sorrow over the passing of our loved ones is expected and a natural process. Brian Holmes says emphatically that, No, it is not! We can be sad when a friend or family member leaves us, but sad as if they are moving to another country, not disappearing from existence forever. You can, and ought to be emotionally stable and spiritually content after the death of a loved one. People sometimes spend months or years of their lives mired in crippling grief which sidetracks them from school, career, positive and healthy parenting, or other fruitful endeavors. Grief sabotages happy, productive lives. Sometimes people in extreme grief become angry, abuse drugs and alcohol, or even take their own lives. It doesn't have to be this way. Sadness when someone leaves our lives is normal. Intense grief need not be. If you are a Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Jew there is plenty of support for the afterlife in the holy books and teachings of your faith. All combined, these religions encompass the spiritual beliefs of most of the people on Earth. 

If you Believe, grief is not for you - emotional peace and happiness is. Defeat your grief now.
