LET US REMEMBER: 9/11

On September 11, we paid tribute to those who suffered from the 9/11 attacks on America. We will always remember those who lost their lives, those who sacrificed to help in any way they could, and the day that brought everyone from all walks of life, rich or poor, together as ONE! God Bless the families and friends of those we have lost, and the brave men and women who continue to fight for our freedom!

ND Jubilee Snapshots

Congratulations, ND, on your Jubilee celebration on August 19, 2018!  Sadly, I was unable to attend the ND Jubilee, since I wasn’t strong enough to drive, due to my surgery.  Nevertheless, I was with my ND Royal Family in heart and spirit.  Thank God a couple of my fellow Royal Sisters were able to share some highlights and pictures of the event.  Enjoy the following snapshots!
