9/11 brought devastation and profound loss, fear brought a new world, children new hope, a national soul brought endurance and a spirit to rebuild. Our grief made us thoughtful, our dilemma is that our sense of justice and freedom might not keep us safe but it will keep us American. Our hearts are with those that suffered and suffer still.

Happy Labor Day.
"Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers and is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. It was created by the labor movement in the late 19th century and became a federal holiday in 1894." - Apr 13, 2010/ Labor Day 2019: Facts, Meaning & Founding - History
