Dear Patriots: What a day to remember. I woke up the morning of 9-11 in the hospital having suffered a stroke the night before. I was in bed and as I watched, I shed tears of disbelief and added my prayers for those victims, their families and America.
I wanted to ensure that you were aware of a commemoration ceremony that will take place at the Capitol on Sunday, September 11th at 6:30 p.m. My self and Speaker Andy Tobin would like to take time to remember this day and reflect on the significant mark that it left on our nation. Obviously I know this is late notice for scheduling purposes, but I felt it was appropriate and necessary to extend an invitation to you all, as you are important members of the Capitol family and our citizens. I work very close with Peter Gadiel of families of 9-11 and have their full support. We would love to see you there, but understand if it is not possible.
Please feel free to pass along this event information to anyone who may be interested.
With kind regards,
Senator Russell Pearce, President of the Arizona State Senate.
