Blog Posted:4/2/2010 11:33:00 AM
I have finally graded the 9-11 contest. I would have to say this was the hardest one to grade. They were all amazing and brought tears to my eyes. Thanks again for your support and patience with me during a very hard time in my life. Lets all hope that I can continue to post and hopefully be able to write more here soon.<br>

Thanks, Nathan for sponsoring a contest to remember and honor the Fallen Heroes of September 11. And though many lives were lost, Americans pulled together and showed the world how brave and caring they really are! God bless you for your thoughtfulness and kind heart. Kindest Regards, Andrew.

Happy Easter to you, Nathan. Thanks for choosing my poem for this memorable contest. It brings tears to my eyes remembering that tragic day. I have searched for the results, but the contest is not listed...I can't find it. Again, I thank you for the Honorable Mention. God bless you. Love, peace and admiration, Andrew.
