Gratitude Built On Remembrance

June 8, 2011 by Jeff Forrest

Over the past few weeks, I’ve noticed an increasing number of documentaries and TV shows on September 11, 2001 (9/11). kanye west phone case iphone 6 gold phone case iphone 6 As we approach the 10th anniversary of that life-changing day, I found myself contemplating the past 10 years and how that day changed our lives. iphone 6 plus case pattern superman phone case iphone 6 bape iphone 6 plus case ted baker iphone 6 case cases iphone 6 leather iphone 7 colour case I wont go into where I was or what I was doing on that day. floveme iphone 8 plus case touch iphone 8 case iphone 6 case bling glitter protective iphone 7 cases iphone 6 case shockproof case marble iphone 6 plus case pineapple off white case iphone 6 iphone 6 case military duty light up iphone 6 plus case We all have our own personal stories. iphone 7 plus case set iphone 8 plus phone case simpson iphone 7 case black leather iphone 6 extra protective case silicone iphone 7 case glitter But, as I reflect I realize that as a company, perhaps 9/11 made us more patriotic. iphone 8 fashion case iphone 8 plus case disney marie iphone 6 palm tree case iphone 8 plus case spigen slim iphone 7 plus case camo nillkin iphone 7 case iphone 8 case glitter case Not too long after 9/11 we added an 800 square foot American flag on the front of our corporate office. phone case for iphone 7 black iphone 6 cases with card holder iphone 7 plus phone cases water lv phone case iphone 7 iphone 7 phone cases plane surphy iphone 6 case iphone 6 card case slim iphone 7 case marc jacobs iphone 7 phone cases bride In addition, as you walk into our lobby you’ll find a plaque memorializing the events of 9/11. iphone 8 case with cover iphone 7 plus case card iphone 6 glitter cases iphone 6 phone cases for women stylish iphone 8 plus case rock case iphone 8 plus It’s unfortunate that it takes something of such a catastrophic nature to open our eyes to what we take for granted everyday; the freedom that is provided to us by so many men and woman protecting us both on our own soil and abroad.

What has become very apparent to me in the past decade are the choices we’ve made and the added meaning behind some of our charitable activities. iphone 7 plus phone case skull iphone 7 phone case light iphone 8 case work iphone 7 phone cases wolf iphone 7 phone cases marbel Specifically, charities related to wounded veterans that hit a special cord in our sentiments. iphone 7 smart battery case mickey iphone 6 plus case cute phone cases iphone 7 sena case iphone 8 plus iphone 6 phone case with ring best iphone 8 plus case pink iphone 8 harry potter case Perhaps they have more meaning because so many young men and woman are fighting wars that were motivated by 9/11. ranvoo iphone 6 case shockproof 360 iphone 8 case iphone 6 harry potter quote case iphone 6 plus phone cases for girls iphone 6 finding dory case camouflage iphone 6 case tortoise iphone 7 case touch screen iphone 7 case And, as a result, more and more of them are being permanently injured or killed.

We were approached a few years back by the Johnny Damon foundation to sponsor his events. iphone 7 phone cases tractor lego case iphone 6 porsche iphone 6 plus case iphone 6 case with animals The idea that Johnny was the national spokesperson for the Wounded Warrior Project and that a portion of the proceeds from his events goes to the WWP made us far more willing to provide support. case battery iphone 7 plus iphone 7 plus case for black for iphone 7 plus case wonder woman iphone 7 plus case And when WPC was asked to participate in the Home at Last projects, a unique effort to honor combat-wounded veterans of the present military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan by providing them with mortgage-free homes, we jumped at the opportunity. moshi case iphone 7 plus checkered iphone 8 case iphone 7 case alice in wonderland iphone 6 plus funny case iphone 6 slim leather case We’ve proudly participated in the construction of three of those homes and, without hesitation, have signed up for the fourth. iphone 7 plus cases torras portable phone charger case iphone 7 plus marbel phone case iphone 6 minion iphone 7 case iphone 8 plus case luxury jack wills iphone x case iphone 7 phone cases golden fluffy cases for iphone 7 WPC will continue to support these efforts and others with honor and patriotic commitment.

A considerable number of lives were affected far more personally than I was as a result of the events on 9/11. belt case iphone 7 iphone 8 case disney glitter iphone 8 ulak case rubber iphone 6 case shockproof iphone 8 rubber case sushi phone case iphone 7 plus sycode iphone 7 case Yet seeing how our charitable actions affect these wounded vets adds a special sense of pride.
