I want to reflect a bit today on what happened 11 yrs. ago. The day that changed America. That day our security was shaken, lives were lost, but our FAITH remained strong!! I remember the strong need to be with my children. They were 9 and 6 years old. Even at that age they understood the tragic events of children losing parents and parents losing children. I am grateful today that I have my family. I am grateful for ALL those who have given up their lives for our BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY and our FREEDOM. For 10 years after the tragedy of 9/11 I quit celebrating my birthday on that day. BUT I AM HAPPY TO SAY THAT TODAY I AM CELEBRATING but also giving HONOR to the MEN, WOMAN, CHILDREN who died on MY BIRTHDAY 11 years ago. I WILL NEVER FORGET!!
