Moment of Silence

The President has asked all Americans to join him in a moment of silence tomorrow morning. All flags will be flying at half staff, and we will reflect and remember those who lost their lives in the ridiculously awful and unnecessary shooting in Arizona yesterday.

Love your neighbors, hugs and kiss your family and love yourself. Tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
