IN MEMORIAM

I spent a good part of the day yesterday watching the ceremonies marking the opening of the memorial that took place at Ground Zero.  A good part of it was spent watching C-SPAN, as they provided uninterrupted coverage of the family members reading the names of the heroes who perished tragically on September 11, 2001.  Their moving testimonials gave continuing rememberance to the goodness of each and every one of those who lost their lives, and the family members they left behind.  May the strength that your loved ones displayed, and you continue to show, be a lasting reminder of what we all can spiritually bring to our daily lives as we rebuild a nation that remembers their martyrdom.
