I plan to send this card to our local fire department as a way to honor the memories of the firefighters and other first responders who ran towards the disaster when so many were running away! May God bless all first responders who ignore their survival instincts to help others every day.
EDITED TO ADD:
Kaylie and I delivered the card and some of my famous peanut butter cookies to the local fire department after school today. Kaylie asked me to bring the camera because she wanted her photo taken with the firefighters. The two on the right in the top photo have bracelets they wear with the name of a firefighter who died on 9/11/01. In the bottom photo they suggested she put on one of their helmets. She's holding it because she said it's VERY heavy!
What a great opportunity to give back to our community heroes as a way to honor those who lost their lives on 9/11! We may have started a new Patriot's Day tradition in our home.

Beautiful card, Allison and a lovely tribute to send the the firemen. I, too, vividly remember where I was when I heard the news that day.ReplyDelete
