The last thing you need is me pontificating about September 11th.  We all know where we were, who we were with and what we were doing.  Sometimes though, pictures don't hurt.

I just hope we can turn this tragedy into a day of service.  A day where we give of ourselves for our neighbors and our country.  Maybe bring a policeman or fireman lunch or some sodas and snacks.  September 11, 2001 isn't the only day their lives are on the line, and rarely, do we see them when times are good.  Maybe you can donate a pint of blood or just take some time to talk to a neighbor.  America is still the greatest country in the world.  It will always stay that way if we, Americans, are the best, kindest, strongest people we can be, and we never turn our backs on those who need help.  Most importantly we must never ever forget September 11, 2001.
