A Day of Rememberance
Today we concluded a wonderful convention of Insurance Professionals in San Diego. We were privileged to be invited to shoot the event to capture the joy and fellowship of all of the wonderful women (and men) who attended and shared their knowledge and experience. The event began with a Blackout on Thursday evening which stretched from San Clemente, to San Diego and east to Yuma Arizona. Despite all of these hardships, the spirit of the convention never wavered, in fact, everyone grew closer! Candles, Glow Sticks and a lot of humor carried the evening.
The dark evening forecast the day of September 11 – 10 years ago. This morning, the Insurance Professionals held a Memorial to 911. The San Diego Assistant Chief of Police delivered an emotional speech, and very heartfelt. After, one of the hotel guests who attended shared her experience as a Mother whose Son is serving in the US Navy. She said that her Son works on The Dragon Team on an Aircraft carrier, 500+ people strong!
Sound’s exciting? He and his Team clean Jets, Munitions, Grease and yuck. They work 18 hours a day and they love it. The Team consists of all Folks from the United States who Serve! This includes all the Nationalities and Faiths that you can envision – they all are Proud and Respect Liberties and Freedoms that this Country is all about! She said that the spirit of these people is what is America!
