Thanking our Nation’s First Responders


With the week starting with 9/11, it’s the perfect time to be thankful of all those First Responders in New York, D.C., and the brave flight 93 passengers – not to mention all the others ready around the Nation that day. With our current National Disasters—whether intense forest fires, hurricane destruction, and countless other emergencies, please keep all Fire Fighters, Police Officers, National Guard Teams, countless volunteers, and civilian heroes in your thoughts and prayers.
