the story behind this painting is that a dad has just gotten on to fdny and it was his first day he got his first fire and it turned out to be at his wifes friends house and his wwife and duaghter were there and he realized his duaghter was still in the buildin went in and got her and the roof started collapsing when he got down to the second floor so he jumped out the window and saved his very own duaghters life......truly a hero This is amazingly beautiful........have never seen a greater passion on "canvas" ♥~ This is awesome. GOD BLESS AMERICA! Very touching. Sometimes one cannot find the words for such an awesome piece... God Bless folks like Michael Israel and the greatness and inspiration this nation brings out in people..and God Bless this great nation...

This is a great tribute to all who lost their lives on 9/11. Sends chills down my back watching it. Thank you to everyone who participated in 9/11, and their families. This I think is one of the best tributes to 9/11. Shall we never forget what the Firefighters / Medics / Police and the civilians went thru on that tragic day. im singing the first song in this video

I think what makes this video so amazing is not only is this unremarkable but my daddy Michael A. Massari showed this to me and had me listen to the song hero and it was unbelievable how much this meant to him, he was a firefighter when he was younger, he died June 27, 2009 and i am so glad that i can watch this knowing how much impact it had on him. i am his 16 year old daughter and i thank you for giving me the chance to feel close to my true hero again. i love and miss you daddy! i am really sorry about that, that you lost your father, it makes me sad. he was assertive a brave and honor man. Im Sorry your dad is gone and Im glad he left this world with a great impression on your life. I hope that you can give your friends the same impression that your dad gave you to them. dude my moms best friend died 4 days befrore that in a bad fire @xopartyxo23 Keep going strong, your story is amazing. Was your dad fighting in the 9/11 attack? @xopartyxo23 i think the painting represents a firefighter and his daughter I think what makes this is amazing is not just that this is unremarkable but that my dad showed this to me and the song hero he had me listen to it before, he died June 27, 2009 and i know that this video really meant something to him and me being able to watch it over and over again makes me feel closer to him. Michael A. Massari my daddy my hero may you rest in peace. i love and miss you soo much.<3 remember every time at the day 27. 2009, i try to remember, too.

Your creations are awesome and as one who steers clear of police, fire, military and anyone else putting their lives on the line, it was a great time paying my respects.

There are many selfish people in this world: dictators, murderers, thieves, brutal abusers, megalomaniacs, and on and on. If unopposed, these people would dispose of anyone they pleased like so much trash. If we only live once, then life is exceedingly precious and it ought to be protected. Thank God for those brave police, fire fighters, EMTs, and armed forces who are willing to risk their lives to protect everyone's families. There are givers and takers in this world, and fortunately, they balance out. The ones keeping this balance are the armed forces, the law enforcement, and the fire fighters, etc. keeping us safe. Damn pookybear84010... damn those are some words of truth right there!!!! Thank God for these people who are out there serving to make others lives more peaceful!!! SGT. Lopez U.S. Army INFANTRY

God Bless the U S A ! O MY GOODNESS... he is amazing.. it is soo kool that he can do that.. he was born with this talent!!!!! He shows passion 4 what he duz.. i respect that If anyone knows what it is like to be rescued by a firemen in a "bad situation" (expecially twice in a lifetime) then you all would know that they are true hero's and you would also agree with me that "We should be Pround to be an American".

God bless the families of all the brave firefighters, cops, and all the others who left us on 9/11, either in the planes, the towers, the Pentagon or on the ground. We must never forget them, and must also remember the spirit of America that united us all in those early post 9/11 days. Let's try to recapture that spirit of unity and purpose, and put aside the divisiveness that will destroy us if we allow it to. I'm an American, and I'm proud of it.

Michael has some awesome talent. If his artwork doesn't touch your heart or bring a tear in your eye, you obviously do not know what it is all about. Being a firefighter, I can not tell you how much it means to see someone not only show their talent but their appreciation for those who put their lives on the line to protect others.

my brother was one of the fire fighters during the 9/11 bombings. we lived about 5 miles from New York city. he was called in. later that day, me and my mom recieved a phone call telling us he died. that was the worst day of my life, he was my hero, god bless the U.S.A This is an awesome video! The choice of songs are amazing! How did he learn to paint like that? America!!! Love It or Leave It!!! Linsgiraffe, yes it is extremely awesome and the chose of songs were perfect. Lee Greenwood, wrote the song "God Bless The USA" specially for that fateful day. Just as Alan Jackson wrote and sang "The Day the World Stopped Turning". GOD BLESS OUR GEAT NATION.

JCsGirl0676 1 year ago

pix4434

bevjo, no that is not right. Lee Greenwood's song God Bless the USA was written in the 80's. He did not write it about 9/11. It was written about something else that I can't think of, but God Bless the USA is an older song. Not about 9/11. Michael Israel did pick the song for the art work and is about that day though.

This is such an awesome way to be artistic and also to dedicate something to those who were at the scene of 9/11. I love the detail that he put into the painting! I wish that I could paint like that!

This country was formed, (thanks George), fought for, died for, and prayed for. Hopefully we will never lose GOD out of our money, national antham, or way of life I understand your sentiment and I also appreciate Michael Israel's work. However, one thing for which our forefathers (including George Washington) fought so bravely was freedom of religion.  I don't believe in your God or Gods, however I'm just as American as you are. And although I'm a flawed person, I'm also very possibly just as ethical and kind as you. Basically, I don't believe one has to worship a higher being in order to be a good American. show

OK...what the hell am I missing here?. What was religous about this ?. Was the mention of 'God' in the first song so offensive to you that you took it to mean a slight against your athiesm ?. You athiests are more asinine and arrogant than the biblethumpers at times !. It's not about merely BEING and American, it's about being PROUD to be an American. Unfortunately for reasoned Atheists, many others ruin it for the rest because they don't seem to be Proud to be an American at all. They allow religion, or lack thereof, to define them first and foremost, which greatly dampers any other message they have. The Founding Father's message was much broader than freedom of religion. Many since fought for mere freedom, of which one right includes freedom religion. DID HE PAINT A GOD OR THE GOD? NO. HE PAINTED A BROTHER FIREFIGHTER. GET OVER YOUR HANGUP ON GOD. By the way, if you were ever in a house fire looking for someone or the seat of the fire, you would know there is a GOD. fucking amazing.... GOD BLESS THE USA! love this country with my heart... glad to sign up for the USMC... glad to go to bootcamp june 22 2009.... glad to be a future warrior for this wonderful nation... love it...

General admission tickets are only $40...discounted to $25 for firefighters. The $250 VIP tickets are for people wishing to support the People's Burn Foundation of Indiana and the National Fallen FIre Fighters Foundation (and for that $250 they get a serigraph normally sold for $500, admission to a VIP reception with Jeff Saturday, table seating, cocktails and food.) The above is for the Heroes and Icons Tribute fundraiser on April 10 at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.

I'm sorry you don't get the good, no the great that comes from this work. Buy a print, hang it up, look at it, feel it, maybe you'll get it some day.

Exploiting??? Your failure to realize that what he is and has been doing to keep not only the memory of what happened on 9/11 alive but also the memory of those who sacrificed so much proves once again that our country is still great. We win even with people like you still around! God Bless Mr. Israel and his talent and may he continue on keeping the rememberance alive and well!
