Doing a little remembering

Posted by on Dec 22, 2012

A couple of weeks ago I was in NYC for a SCOPE meeting and happened to have some extra time afterwards. Since I grew up just outside of NYC, I decided it was time to visit the 9/11 Memorial at Ground Zero. Part of my decision to visit was to see the memorial and the other part was to take a picture of somebody who we have permanently memorialized at Camp.

So, when I moved out of my folks house and into my own place, one of the many things I looked forward to each year was getting a big old tree and decorating it.
