A Solemn 9/11 Tribute: the Names of All 2,996 Victims

On September 11, 2001, 2,996 people lost their lives at the hands of Osama Bin Laden. This is a solemn and simple video memorial to the victims of the World Trade Center attacks.

While it is simply white names on a black background, seeing them scroll on and on evokes the true magnitude of 9/11. We’ve all seen the horrifying footage of the planes hitting the Twin Towers, but to sit and watch these names and remember that each and every one of them represents someone who lost their life, one can appreciate more the horrors that happened that day. Each of the people listed was someone who had a family, perhaps children, a childhood dog or cat. They had people who cared about them, a mother and a father. They all had lives as full and meaningful as our own, and to see these names, and really think about that, is the only way to get some idea of the magnitude of the events that took place on 9/11/2001.
