To all the faithful participants in the Smith County‘s Revitalism of Patriotism 9/11 event:

It was a beautiful sight watching our Smith County family come together by “Honoring Our Past and Embracing our Future‘ on Sept. 11, 2017. Because everyone was giving their best, there was little room for improvement.

Since the event, positive responses have come from every part of our county. It is my hope that we have laid a solid foundation for our communities to build upon for years to come. In fact, several surrounding counties have now expressed an interest in doing a similar event next year.

I am honored that you chose to be a part of an even to remind our youth and community of the huge sacrifice our first responders make every day. Hebrews 6:10 tells us that God will not forget your work and labor of love which you shown in His name.

Thank you for making the event one that spotlights how blessed we are to Americans!
