LOVE this local tradition at Xavier Charter School.
Was sharing with my children this morning about September 12, how much I really miss the day after September 11. There was no division that day, not by color, not by politics, not by religion, not by immigration status. Do you remember? I remember how it felt. Sept 11 affected all of us, born, naturalized, immigrated, documented, undocumented it was an attack all Americans. But it was September 12 that revealed who we are as Americans. Americans from all walks of life united in a historic way to reopen and rebuild. We rolled up our sleeves to honor the fallen by supporting, defending & bringing life back to America. We were united by our pain, compassion & strength. God Bless all who continue to sacrifice & serve.
