President Obama’s Weekly Address 8/27/11: Coming Together to Remember

WASHINGTON— In this week’s address, President Obama called on the American people to come together in the spirit of service and remembrance as we approach the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks. All Americans can pay tribute to those who lost their lives during 9/11 by visiting Serve.Gov to find ways to help within their own communities. Through even the smallest of actions, we can reclaim the sense of unity that followed the attacks, and demonstrate that our sense of common purpose is just as strong today as it was ten years ago. Americans can once again come together to mark this solemn anniversary with service, and move towards a bright future as one nation.

Saturday Morning Cartoons: Rugrats – Hurricane Alice

Sit down this morning and relax a little bit before the “big one” hits. Everyone needs to take a break and smile before going nuts about what might or might not happen when Hurricane Irene blows through our area starting later tonight. It’s cartoon time as far as I’m concerned.
