I want to say Thank You for your bravery. Although I didn't know you, I was born on the day you died. That is what brought me to your page. There are no words powerful enough to express my gratitude for your bravery, and for the sorrow of all the lives lost. Gone but not forgotten. Somehow you are a part of me. We are people born and raised in the USA.
