Thank you for the wonderful issue of September 9. I read it from cover to cover over the weekend. My husband and I were in Peterborough, England, on September 11, 2001. I am a Canadian, and over in England, we didn't hear one word about what Canada was doing to help in the aftermath of the tragedies.

Marilyn Jones's and Ari Denison's trip to Newfoundland and the interviews they did were heartwarming. Seldom do we hear about the wonderful things Canadians have done and are doing on the international television news—about the love that was expressed to the passengers returning home to the United States from Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, all over the world. The blessings that have come from a day of tragedy, the love expressed to others unparalleled in recent times, again coming from a day of tragedy—we can remember these lovely stories and experiences and see them as blessings that came from September 11. Those lost will forever be remembered in our hearts, but we can all move forward with a renewed sense of the divine Love that guides and comforts every one of us.

This is the first time that I learned the complete details of the part Canadians played, and I am so proud of my countrymen. I want to express my profound gratitude to the Sentinel for devoting most of this issue to the Gander story.
