I spent time this morning talking with a friend who was working at Ground Zero on the days and weeks following the 9/11 attacks. So many of our heroes had a job to do immediately. When I think of them, and that day altogether, there is a feeling that grabs me in the throat; there are no adequate words to describe it. And maybe it’s that feeling that unites us in this moment as we remember.

The passing of Leslee King is a loss to all of Loudoun. Leslee never stopped thinking about others. Even during our last conversation, she wanted to make sure she took care of me. May her life and death serve to unite us in kindness, in memory of Leslee.

LCPS graduate Christian Yohannes spoke at today’s Juneteenth ceremony. Christian was among 28 recipients honored with a 2021 Fitz Alexander Campbell Thomas Memorial Scholarship at a ceremony Monday afternoon at Riverside High School. Those scholarships were made possible through contributions from the Loudoun Freedom Center, the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS), Santana Moss 89 Ways To Give Foundation and others. I am grateful for the invitation to be present - a timely reminder of what matters despite the noise.

An inspiring afternoon graduation at Dominion High School- coincidentally, a continuation of student focus on the meaning of life and appreciating each moment, as it was at County. It was especially meaningful to shake the hands of many kids who have grown up (some since diapers) with my own!
