9/11   Never Forget
Unfortunately, sometimes our memories are too short and many no longer remember the horror of 9/11  and the evil that attacked our great country 9 years ago.

We received an email yesterday with a very touching Power Point presentation that we should all view at least once a month so that we remember that we are in a fight for the very survival of our nation and our way of life.  There are people who want to destroy us and they are not going away.

You can download the Power Point here ...  it is very large and will take a while to load ... and you won’t be able to view it unless you have Power Point on your computer.     View and remember and stay strong.
