There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11.<br /> As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.<br /> But there is one memory I want to hold on to, one that I want to cherish as the deepest and most lasting of Sept. 11, 2001.<br /> Letters for Sept. 21, 2016 <p> All invited to pray for addiction recovery efforts<br /> In the face of tremendous pain and suffering caused by drug use, the pastors of Henry County have come together, forming an initiative to consider a response filled with both grace and truth.<br /> Our desire is to affirm all life as sacred, that no one is too far gone, that no soul is beyond saving.
