 I'm sorry But I avoided a Tribute to 9/11/01  The day was just too emotional, 
 And in recent years it has been used to promote sales rather than remember those that we lost, 
 However one company's video makes us remember the event in the solemn dignity it deserves
 No Hype, No Words, No Ads, No Sales pitch.
