September 11, 2004
Today marks the third anniversary of the terrible attacks in New York, Washington, and Pa. I watched the tribute with a heavy heart as I have done for the past two years. I pray for the famiy of Firefighter Mr. Delvalle. Let me tell you why.

Within a week after the attacks, I bought a 9-11 memorial bracelet. I did not choose the name but I did ask for a firefighter one because my Dad is a retired N.J. firefighter. My bracelet reads Manuel Delvalle, FDNY, September 11, 2001. It is red and it has the symbol of a firefighter hat on it. I have worn it each day since receiving it and I will continue to wear it always. I did not know Mr. Delvalle, and I do not know his family. When I look at the bracelet, it reminds me to pray and it makes me a little sad. The losses on that day three years ago are horrific.

But it also makes me very proud to wear the bracelet because it represents such heroism and bravery. For that, I am grateful.

I will continue to pray for Mr. Delvalle's family. God bless you all.

Today

I look out over the sea of faces
Tears running down each check
Lives made wide open
All Hearts exposed

I hear the names read
each syllable spoken with care,
each name spoken wtih love
Voices cracking but never faltering

Our flag is flying
The sky is blue
We are one
We are hopeful
Never fading
