I've written this piece in such a way as to leave the audience with new, healing memories linked to those that still wound us. Ann Van Hine, the wife of one of the characters in the play said, "We shouldn't be coping, we should be hoping." It is my deepest desire that this play will bring hope and healing to those who experience it.
Arrangements can be made to have Ann Clark Van Hine, the widow of one of the characters in the play, speak after the performance, and/or have Dominick Crincoli play the song he wrote for the play, "I Will Respond." Dominick could also perform a mini-concert and/or worship service after the play, with or without his band.

Wow. I remember being at MasterWorks a year or so after 9/11 and seeing this drama. There wasn't a dry eye in the room - the all guys row behind me was sniffling all throughout. I wish I could see it again, but it made a deep impression on me, and brought healing to our group. Thank you for sharing your gifts.

This play spreads his glory.

Thank you for such a great performance. I lost my friend who was a firefighter. Your performance and sensitivity meant the world to me that night.
