Release Date: September 11, 2020

September 11, 2001, revealed heroism in ordinary people who might have gone through their lives never called upon to demonstrate the extent of their courage. ~Geraldine Brooks

As true as this was on September 11, it remains true today. Thank you for all of the courage you display when called to do so…all positive changes in the world were made by the selfless acts of ordinary people.

Have a relaxing, enjoyable weekend.

P.S. If you get the chance, go by the Pentagon to see the lights honoring all who lost their lives on September 11. It’s beautiful.
