9/11 Memory

9/11/2001 broke my heart, and probably yours, too. But not my great-nephew Chase. It was his first birthday. He is 10 years old today. It took a lot of courage for his mom, my niece Amanda to go ahead with his party that year. But it was the right thing to do. In the midst of death there is life, but it needs courage and nurturing and the ability to put one's own grief aside in order to do the right thing. Happy Birthday, Chase. God Bless all of our 9/11 heroes. Even the ones who bake birthday cakes.
