In the face of tragedy, America, no matter the debates or the difference of opinions, has pulled together and has continued to solidified what we stand for.. ..FREEDOM. A stronger America giving hope and faith to all Americans….. ... …young and old. But America is not just about freedom but about UNITY and with this strength in mind, we will be able to kiss our children goodnight and know that tomorrow will be a better day and that our America is still the BEST and SAFEST place to be.

It is a chance of reflection on many important things we tend to overlook in our everyday lives.....make the effort to reflect on love, on family and on freedom.
