Sixteen-Page Magazine Touches the Lives of Sept. 11 Victims With Inspiring Stories and Words of Comfort

"Gazing upward, we saw plumes of fire and smoke staining the morning sky. . .Gazing upward, our hearts were broken. Yet gazing upward, we can find our hope." So begins the short but powerful Fallen but not Forgotten, a 16-page booklet given to millions of New York City's victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center.

Produced within one week of the attacks by Campus Crusade for Christ International, Fallen but not Forgotten features a collection of stories, prayers, and poems designed to encourage and comfort the grieving victims, rescue workers, and others touched by the devastating tragedy. Since September, it has been printed in five languages and distributed to 14 million people worldwide.

"We felt it was important that New York City's residents know that despite the evil that exists in the world, there is a God that loves them," said Judy Nelson, executive editor of the simple booklet. "Fallen but not Forgotten offers them¾and all Americans¾a ray of hope amidst the literal and figurative clouds in their lives."

Fallen but not Forgotten is the centerpiece of The 911 Remembrance Project, a partnership of thousands of churches nationwide. The booklet includes:

An article about Shelley Genovese, widow of a Cantor Fitzgerald employee lost in the attacks

"Honor Their Memory," an article about grieving written by Darrel Scott, father of Rachel Scott, a victim of 1999's Columbine school shooting

President Bush's remarks from the recent National Prayer Breakfast and from the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance (Friday, Sept. 14, 2001)

"It Only Takes a Moment," which speaks of the brevity of life and answers questions about good, evil, suffering, and the sovereignty of God
