    Thanks coaches for letting me go the whole way, and everyone for the encouragement.

    An even bigger thanks to all those who have sacrificed and continue sacrifice to keep us safe.

    Bear witness – Honor – Never forget

    Me too me too – I always wake up on Sept 11 with a pang of sadness. This was a great way to spend the day.
