Shared personal story of my 9/11 experience as a native NY-er and fathers comments to me as he saw the towers fall.  WWII Navy Vet – “Nicky, I fought overseas so this would never happen on our shores” :(( What can happen when we become complacent and take our eyes off of the blessings of Liberty?  Judges 2&3 “There arose a generation who knew not God or warfare…”  Shared quote  “The roots of the tree of Liberty must from time to time be refreshed by the blood of tyrants and patriots”  Every generation has responsibility to defend Liberty and preserve for posterity.  Never Forget!!! 

Countorama – 11 on 9/11 :))

Nameorama – Welcome FNG Palin!

Completely neglected BOM caught up in the emotion of the moment – posted prayer later in Slack Channel.


As difficult as it was for me, felt divinely appointed to be on Q this morn.  Still pretty raw …and guess that’s okay.
