We Remember Courage
Former New York City mayor, Rudolph Giuliani, said this:
"The attacks of September 11th were intended to break our spirit. Instead we have emerged stronger and more unified. We feel renewed devotion to the principles of political, economic, and religious freedom, the rule of law and respect for human life. We are more determined than ever to live our lives in freedom."
I know you're like me. You remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when it became evident that our country was attacked.
I especially remember seeing Thomas Franklin's photo of the three firemen raising the flag amid the rubble at ground zero. It became an icon of the strength, courage and resilience of America and its heroes. Club Scrap had the honor of transforming that image into a rubber stamp, and I thought it might be fitting to stamp it once again.
We will never forget.
