Remembering September 11, 2001

I would like to take a moment of silence for the memory of those who died on 9/11 and those who are fighting and dying each day to help make our world a safer one for us and our children ... at this fifth year anniversary may we remember what it means to have democracy and how lucky we are to live in this land that I love so dearly.

For this moment of silence I am including a picture of the scene that most often puts me in my place. The ocean always reminds me of how small I am and how there truly is something bigger at work here. God is in charge and we need to remember that and show him some respect.

I love you all.

So ... recently I went home to spend some quality time with my sisters and meet Lauren's new roomie, Erica. We hopped in the 'Sunday Car' and traveled to Ponce Inlet south of Daytona Beach to take Erica (who is from Rockville, Maryland of all places) to check out the Lighthouse.

Here we are on the way down there ... Ashley, Erica and Lauren.

Of course I just had to take a picture of this old boat ... notice the name. ;)

Here's the beautiful sunset in Ponce Inlet ... and finally a windblown Caron atop the Lighthouse.
