Today, you have not made me pee from laughing like you usually do. And that's okay. Sometimes we need to do something else.

I weep from seeing these figures. My heart aches, my eyes leak.

I prayed for the 9/11 victims' families today as I got ready for work. They've been on my mind and in my heart all day. And I have printed out a little picture of the U.S. flag and taped it to the front of my desk at work so everyone will see it. And not forget.

Thanks for helping us not forget.

with love from Pittsburgh...
