God Bless America ~ Shawn & Sue 


It was Tuesday, September 11th 2001 that for so many, life would change forever. I still remember being on the air , on 92.7 WOBM, on a beautiful and fairly routine day. Listeners were off to work, kids at school and Lisa Leonard and I getting ready to put a wrap on the day. Then as we all know things evolved into what is now a historical terrorist attack, that left so many dead and even more broken-hearted! It is our responsibility as Americans to never forget!
