limited column space.
The original press release is below:
San Martin, CA—In the midst of turmoil around the globe with an increasing tide of natural and man-made disasters, people are wondering how to deal with such a catastrophe if one should hit southern Santa Clara County. That’s why <name redacted> in San Martin is hosting the “Day of Preparedness Fair” on Saturday, October 22nd from 1p.m to 5p.m to the community. On their one-acre parcel they will have booths set up with representatives from CDF, The sheriff’s Dept., Red Cross, U.S. Geological Survey, CERT Personnel, San Martin Neighborhood Alliance, and local law enforcement agencies.
This is a community-wide educational fair where people can learn what do in an event of an emergency. The participating agencies will be present to answer questions and talk to the public in a family-friendly atmosphere of music, a jump house, refreshments, and a raffle where people may win prizes.
<name redacted> is offering their property to the Red Cross as one of the crisis shelters to the south valley. Director <name redacted> says, “We are choosing a proactive approach of wisdom to avoid additional confusion should this situation ever arise. We have chosen the motto: Desperate times call for Wise Measures as our goal. We invite our community to come together and learn along with us how we can best serve our area. “

|I am deeply touched to be
of your lives, America’s heroes of freedom who are present here,
tonight; those who lost loved ones for the price of liberty, those who
were wounded by the senseless attacks, and to the brave ones who risked
their lives to rescue others on that fateful day of September 11. The
mayor’s office is honored to endorse this patriotic tribute because it
lifts up the true champions of our nation. We stand beside you,
humbled by your sacrificial giving.
We extend our hearts not only to Washington, D.C. and to those at the Pentagon, but to New York City, and to those who lost loved ones on the fields of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. It is truly our privilege to partake in this commemorative event, one-year later on September 11, 2002. To be surrounded by Americans who have not lost their strength, who keep going despite adversity. My words cannot adequately express the compassion and gratitude I feel for all who perished last year. However, the words painted on a sign at one of the crash sites best describes our sentiments, “Your bravery, your lives, will not be forgotten.”
I wish to thank <name redacted>, president of America’s Heroes of Freedom, Inc. and Susan Brewer-Vice President and their staff for organizing this memorial. Washington, D.C. will never be the same after the tragic events of September 11, however through this historic tribute; it is God’s way of encouraging and directing our paths to a brighter future. Our blessings are with you always. Thank you again for allowing me to be a significant part of this evening.
Anthony D. Williams
Mayor of Washington, D.C
