An Emotional 9/11

It's been an emotional, patriotic tenth anniversary of September 11, 2001, to say the least.  Some of the television programming has been rivoting, especially a program I watched on The History Channel about a hero by the name of Rick Rescorla, who predicted the attack on the World Trade Center.  It was his implementation of evacuation procedures that saved thousands of lives in Manhattan that tragie day.  Unfortunately, it didn't save his life.

It was a disappointing start to the season for the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, getting throttled by the Bears in Chicago, 30-12.  But what a stirring performance of the National Anthem by Jim Cornelison.  Click on the photo below to watch.

A Dunwoody resident by the name of Brian Mand has edited a book about 9/11, The Legacy Letters:  Messages of Life and Hope from 9/11 Family Members.   All proceeds go to the non-profit Tuesday's Children.
