I'll never forget the emotions running through me when I filmed for this PSA by Ad Council just 2 days after 9/11/01. Just before stepping up to the camera, I was asked "what does 9/11 mean to you?". Overwhelmed with tears at the prompt, I can't help but continue to think of all those families who lost their loved ones due to this terrible act of terror. I continue to grieve for them, especially on every anniversary, and pray that they've found solace within their souls knowing their loved ones, although physically not present, will always watch over us in spirit and guide us in their own loving ways.
I am and will always be proud to be an American. Fear can never kill that pride within me.
I send my love to families in need of more love and hope than ever.
