Purpose of This Website
website was created for the sole purpose of commemorating the 10th
Year Anniversary, and subsequent anniversaries, of the tragic events of
September 11, 2001 (9/11) -- events that forever changed the course of
This 9-11 10th Year Anniversary initiative was conceived, funded, designed, developed, and is being operated by a team of everyday Americans like you, here at EKTIMIS. Much like all patriotic Americans, we at EKTIMIS were also touched and changed by the events of 9/11.
One of the lessons of 9/11 is the fact that freedom is worth defending, and we all saw our freedom threatened about a decade ago by people who choose death over life--for themselves and for those that they hate.
Our vision in commemorating this 10th Anniversary of 9/11 is in essence a celebration of freedom. We have chosen to do so by remembering and honoring those who lost their freedom on 9/11, and those brave warriors and diplomats who have made the ultimate sacrifice by defending our freedom since 9/11. Because of their loss (of freedom), ours is preserved.
We invite all Americans to join us in this commemoration--this celebration of freedom. Join us, connect with other Americans, and engage in a respectful and honorable celebration now and during each subsequent anniversary.
As part of this 10th Year Anniversary, we have created two fine works of commemorative art as well as a collector's merlingold medallion memorabilia. These commemorative artworks were conceived and designed by Niyi Taiwo (founder and principal of EKTIMIS), and were drawn under a special commission by freelance artist, Christine Waniak-Howell, artistic director and advisor at EKTIMIS.
EKTIMIS is a Massachusetts (USA)-based company that creates, publishes, and produces products and services that offer practical solutions to individuals, families and businesses on the sole topic of respect and a culture of respect.
