September 11, 2020

Dear Friend,

On this morning, nineteen years ago, a group of evil terrorists hijacked a group of commercial airplanes and set out on a mission to kill as many innocents as possible. Unfortunately, they succeeded in that endeavor and many good men and women were lost.

But the terrorists failed in their more foundational quest; they failed to divide America through their attacks. Evil individuals brought the wrath of God and the United States upon themselves and their followers, and they met the darkness they brought with them.

President George W. Bush, in his address to the nation later that evening, enshrined the timeless American truth of service to others:

“Terrorist attacks can shake the foundations of our biggest buildings, but they cannot touch the foundation of America. These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve. America was targeted for attack because we're the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world. And no one will keep that light from shining. Today, our nation saw evil -- the very worst of human nature -- and we responded with the best of America. With the daring of our rescue workers, with the caring for strangers and neighbors who came to give blood and help in any way they could.”

Today, we remember the 2,977 people who died on 9/11, especially those bravely and selflessly raced into dangerous buildings in order to save others. We will never forget.

It is on!

In less than two weeks, LFF will host the Virtual 2020 Legislative Awards Ceremony, honoring legislators who have stood strong for faith and freedom in Louisiana – the same faith and freedom that was attacked on 9-11-01.

Due to COVID capacity limitations, we will be hosting the majority of our event this year via a free LiveStream – and we want you to be a part of honoring the elected officials who have stood so strong for our freedoms. You can click here to submit your virtual RSVP for the event and receive the link to join as the event approaches.

Plus, you’ll have a chance to witness a world-class, unique musical experience, The Louisiana Blessing, which won’t be seen anywhere else. You do not want to miss this moment.

Don’t delay – let us know that you plan to participate and please invite your friends to join us virtually as well.

And, of course, if you’d like to help Sponsor the festivities, or make a donation towards costs, you can click here.

 

Finally, LFF’s Compassion and partner programs are in full swing marshaling much-needed relief in areas affected by Hurricane Laura. Please click here if you’d like to make a donation to help in that effort.

Thank you for your loyal support of the important work that LFF does in Louisiana.

In His Service,


Gene Mills
