Together We Stand
On the eve of September 11, you can't help but think back to 2001 when the United States was rocked to its core with the horrendous acts of terror that took the lives of thousands. It's a somber time for every American as we go on with our regular day while trying not to forget the events that took place. If you were to ask anyone where they were on that day, they could tell you, in a heartbeat, what they were doing, who they were with and where they were. Like a Phoenix though, America has risen from the ashes of September 11, 2001 and have worked hard to rebuild what was destroyed - tangible and intangible. Though it's been 9 years, we still need to stand by each other and support one another. Whether tragedy strikes a country, family, company or community - the best way to get through it together is to stand beside each other.

FranklinA thoughtful mind, when it sees a Nation's flag, sees not the flag only, but the Nation itself; and whatever may be its symbols, its insignia, he reads chiefly in the flag the Government, the principles, the truths, the history which belongs to the Nation that sets it forth.
-Henry Ward Beecher
