COUNT-OFF & NAME-O-RAMA4 Pax, no FNGs  Commando, Moth Balls, Jail Bait, Orange Julius
Discussed the importance of remembering the events of 9/11. Should we, our children, or our grandchildren forget, then something similar will happen again.
Each Pax reflected on where they were the day it happened. Each of us had a similar yet uniquely different experience. The clarity with which we are able to recall those events down to minute detail is always startling.

Prayers for Commando, currently undergoing changes in employment that have resulted in some uncomfortable yet necessary conversations as he does what is best for his daughter.

Prayers for Jail Bait and his M as they prepare to welcome a newborn next week into their family!

YHC loved the opportunity to post and Q at the Sandlot!
