In case you’ve never seen Blue Man Group’s Exhibit 13 vid tribute to 9/11, we wanted to share it with you. Per their youtube page:
The following pieces of paper blew into the Carroll Gardens neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York following the attacks at The World Trade Center on September 11th, 2001.
The Exhibit 13 video was created by the Blue Man community in response to those tragic events. We remember.

As we approach the anniversary of the 9/11 attack on our country, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the 2,977 lives lost…
- 2,753 victims at the World Trade Center (including 343 firefighters, 60 police officers, and 8 private EMTs);
- 184 who died at the Pentagon;
- and 40 at Shanksville, PA.
There have also been about 1,000+ responders who have since passed due to 9/11 related illnesses from working at Ground Zero.
People often forget terrorist attacks against our nation began long before the 2001 attack and, with all the unrest around the world, we will continue to deal with threats going forward. But we need to remain calm about the threat of terrorist attacks since they are a low risk possibility, and we should all be vigilant.
Our company works very closely with first responders across the nation so we ask you to please remember the sacrifices many responders and volunteers gave so willingly on that day – and everyday – to keep us safe. Never forget…

And if you have an hour to spare, watch 9/11: Ground Zero’s Responders (2001) – A film by Lou Angeli — Narrated by Kathleen Turner. Angeli’s description on Youtube… “Within minutes of the World Trade Center collapse on 9/11/01, emergency personnel and volunteers from around the nation responded to New York’s call for help in what is considered by many as the greatest rescue mission ever. When everything could have totally fallen apart, these remarkable people revealed to the world the true meaning of the American Spirit.”
