15 years have passed since that crisp fall morning when Americans were shocked out of their daily routines as they stood stunned at the spectacle of attacks on the World Trade Center, then the Pentagon and finally the crash at Shanksville.  Through the hours and days that followed Americans watched as firemen, police and average citizens worked to save lives and restore security to our nation.  The best of America was on display in the midst of the worst attack on US soil.  We will never forget.

PLC 2010 with the founding mother of modern conservatism, Phyllis Schlafly, who passed away this week at age 92 after serving her country for 70 years while raising 6 children with her late husband, Fred.  The lives she touched and inspired are countless, including the women of our council.  We honor her memory.
