Our Story - About Us

Purpose of This Website

This 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 U.S. history and the lives of every American.

In commemorating the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, this website (and its related Facebook, Twitter, and Online Blog social sites) was designed to:

  • Honor the memory of all those who have died as a result of 9/11,
  • Honor our men and women in the military for their distinctive and proud service to country over the past decade since 9/11,
  • Rally all Americans around a common anniversary theme--Never Forget, Stay Vigilant, and Remain United,
  • Engage American youth and young adults in dialogue regarding 9/11,
  • Remind all Americans everywhere of the principles and values that we share and that have kept us united on the issue of 9/11,
  • Serve as a platform for encouragement and support through sharing of our stories of strength, survival, resilience, and hope, and
  • Facilitate a medium for expressing and conveying our gratitude (through words and special gifts) to our men and women in the military, their families, as well as the firefighter community.

About Us

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.
