In Memorium

One can't live in America and not know the significance of today's date, 9-11. It has been eight years since the terrorist attack but the images are forever with us. We pause today to remember.
North St. Paul is my husband's hometown. His sister lives in there. Last weekend North St. Paul police Officer Rick Crittenden was killed when he answered a call about a domestic disturbance. He died defending the wife and daughter of a man who was violating a restraining order. He was the first policeman ever from this sleepy little suburb to die in the line of duty. He will be buried on the day we mourn so many in public service who died helping others when the World Trade Center was attacked. May they all be in our hearts forever. We are grateful for their sacrifice.
