Most of us, can still today, look back at the horrific events that marked this day in history. The feelings of disbelief as we watched the television broadcast, listened on the radio, and read in the newspapers about the attacks on our great country. That day, we came together, united as a country in thoughts and prayers as we watched our brothers and sisters fight for one another to save lives. This day should be a remembrance for everyone, to follow those same feelings to once again, reunite and help keep "America Great".

While at the Capitol, the delegates debate and discuss the Issues that have been presented to them by their Executive Board from the July Executive Board meeting.
