Lest We Forget: 9/11 Thirteen Years of Healing
The program was very good and insightful. I didn't know that the four planes involved were American and United. Melida Carli, branch manager of the Lumberton Library, made a very poignant reference to the fact that as Americans we should always remain United. The video of the program has been posted on the Lumberton Informer Facebook page. I don't know if it's because of the Day of Remembrance or if there's something in the air, but everyone was overly polite on this day. Everyone was greeting each other with smiles and handshakes. Unfortunately, none of the elected officials of Lumberton were in attendance. Aside from meeting several friendly people, I got the opportunity to chat with Lumberton School District Superintendent, Dr. Linda Smith. It's always a joy to speak with her and she had some very encouraging words to share. She invited me to attend the open house tonight at Lumberton School District. I don't know if the friendliness of others will last beyond today but I will enjoy it while it lasts.
