9/11 Five Years Later

I made this quilt one year after 9/11, and thought I had worked through the worst of it. But last night, as I watched the documentary on CBS, I realized I will never get over 9/11. As it should be.

If you zoom in on this image, based on a photograph taken on 9/11, you will see pentagon shapes stitched amongst the buildings and behind Liberty's flame. Please remember our military today and everyday.

My son-in-law is still in Iraq, my daughter is still missing him, his children are still missing him. This is the life of tens of thousands of military families who continue to combat terrorists in Afghanistan and Iraq.

This is why Operation Kid Comfort is so important, and why we need your support.
