I worried about the family of a neighbor of mine. She is from New York City.

I will never forget the fear and confusion, or the pride in America as people put aside their differences, joined together, and helped each other through a difficult time.
While we may disagree on what choices our leaders need to make in order for our country to move forward, let's be sure to remember one thing: when we work together, we can accomplish anything.
