We Will Never Forget
Friday, September 9, 2016 

As we look back on September 11, 2001 let us remember the Bravery, Courage and Humanity shown that day. Let us take a moment this weekend to remember all those who left their homes to never return. Let us keep them as well as their families always and forever in our hearts and prayers.

On this 15th Anniversary of September 11th we remember the sacrifice of our public servants who demonstrated the greatest of all by laying down their own lives for a friend.

May we always remember the unselfish acts of kindness that was shown by all Americans.

September 11th was a day that we did not worry about ourselves, we worried about others. It was a day that as Americans we stood up to evil and moved forward to rebuild as on Nation.

September 11th will always be the day that when darkness hit our country we all stood up as one and made the sun shine again.
