Healing America’s Broken Heart, Year after Year.

Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve.  -George W. Bush

With the anniversary of September 11th, 2001, looming tomorrow, this can be a very emotional time for many.  Check in on a neighbor, stop in to see a family member.  Give an extra hug to someone who may need it.  Call that friend you’ve been meaning to, but have been too busy.  Smile at a stranger.  Take the time to reach out, show you care.  Talk about your feelings and always allow time to grieve.  It’s been 13 years, but feels like just yesterday….a sure sign that life passes us by and loved ones can be gone in a flash.  That day is forever engraved in our hearts and minds, and we would like to send our thoughts and deepest sympathies to those who had to endure the loss of a loved one.
