IN MEMORY OF THOSE WHO DIED AND THOSE WHO ARE MISSING FROM THE HORRENDOUS TERRORIST ACT OF WAR UPON THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
SEPTEMBER 11, 2001.
Like everyone else in this wonderful country of ours, we are in shock. The pictures we see on television are unlike anything most of us have ever seen. They are reminiscent of times of war, experienced by our veterans of all of our wars. This time, the war was declared on our soil, on our civilian people, on the core of our very being. This week has proven however that the American people are strong and resilient. We are a nation of many peoples, all colors, religions, ethnic backgrounds. But first and foremost, we are all Americans. And we are proud of it.
We salute the firefighters and police officers who are still battling to save lives in the rubble. The outpouring of help from ordinary citizens has been the greatest. We salute all of you.
We as citizens of this great country will now be faced with a new way of life, and with supporting in all ways possible the government and military of the United States of America.
Meanwhile, we can all help in so many ways. Here are some locations to offer your help in whatever way you can:
Robin Hood Relief Fund - http://911relief.robinhood.org/
Organizations to help vicitims of the September 11 attack on America - http://www.cochran.senate.gov/press/pr091901.html

Friday, September 14, 2001 was declared by President Bush to be a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance. It is our understanding there were services at most local churches throughout the day. We believe that those prayers should be said daily - for those who died, who are missing, who are ill from the subsequent Anthax attacks and those who are fighting for our freedom - both at home and abroad. And if you cannot make it to church, stop a moment and say a prayer - for the souls of those who have given their lives for their country, for the families of those who perished, for the rescue workers, for our country, our military, our President. Together, we will not only survive but America will become stronger.
On Friday evening, September 14 Americans were asked to light a candle at 7:00 p.m. and step outside. And we Americans did just that - in massive, impressive numbers.
The ever burning candle will remain on our pages to honor those who have passed on and who are missing, until such time as the world wide War on Terrorism has been concluded.
From the lifeblood of America - read what they have to say!
