Photographer: Christian Meyn

Media has the ability to be burnt indelibly into the mind. Moments frozen in time that never leave one’s mind and which tell a story so strong.
Some of those moments for me are below.

This photo (taken by Nick Ut), has become memorable throughout history. It shows the innocence of human suffrage, the victim of war and brutality. She runs through the streets, with burns on her back from a napalm attack on her village by the Vietnam Air Force. The crying children fleeing from a grisly attack, mars the human mind.

In the shade of an open tent flap, photographer Steve McCussy
immortalized the haunted eyes of a 12-year-old refugee in a camp on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border.

The girl’s piercing green eyes, shocked with hints of blue and fear, gave away her story. Soviet helicopters destroyed her village and family, forcing her to make a two-week trek out of the perilous mountains of Afghanistan.

The fall of the Berlin Wall was the first step toward German reunification, which was formally concluded on October 3, 1990.
On November 9, 2009, Berlin celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a "Festival of Freedom" with dignitaries from around the world in attendance for an evening celebration around the Brandenburg Gate. A high point was when over 1000 colorfully designed foam domino tiles, each over 8 feet tall, that were stacked along the former route of the wall in the city center were toppled in stages, converging in front of the Brandenburg Gate

Band Aid, whose members comprises some of the well-known acts in the industry, was founded by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in 1984 in order to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia. "Do They Know It's Christmas" was recorded no more than 24 hours on the 25th of November 1984 and was released on December 3, selling a million copies on its first week alone and stayed at the top of the charts for five weeks. Then came the "Live Aid" concert held on July 13, 1985. One of the biggest ever. Held in different venues around the world, an estimated 1.5 billion viewers, across 100 countries, watched the live broadcast generating millions for the relief effort. Merry Christmas. Feed the world.

Declan was born on December 19, 1991 in England. He is from Scottish AND Irish origin. Declan recorded a song that asks the question: "Tell Me Why Does it Have to Be Like This?"
On December 9, 2002, the largest choir in history, drawn from all parts of the UK and Ireland joined Declan Galbraith to sing 'Tell Me Why' for a Guinness World Record. 10,000 singers with Declan and 80,000 others throughout the UK and Ireland were successful at obtaining the record.

"Tears in Heaven" is a ballad written by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings about the pain Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor, who fell from a window of the 53rd-floor New York apartment of his mother's friend, on March 20, 1991.

Due to the increased amounts of requests to download this video, I have decided to allow the video to be downloaded. I feel that the people who want to use it in schools, churches, projects and reports should be able to do so. I ask that you do not edit or modify it in any way. I know that I can not enforce this, but I trust that most people will listen.

This is a music video I made in about 2003 that tells the story of the events that occurred on September 11, 2001 as well as after.

This is a tribute to all 2,998 people who died that day. Please be respectful.
