We will never forget

On this night 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 

343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. 

None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. Tonight as you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. May God Bless their souls and May God Bless our Country.

From your local State Farm Insurance Agent Kellie Davidson

Neighborhood of Good makes it easy to give back to our neighborhood! Our office has started partnering with local organizations with State Farm's Quote for Good. 

Through State Farm's Quotes for Good, for every quote my team and I complete this month, we'll give $10 to Wyatt's Warriors in honor of childhood cancer awareness month. 

Wyatt's Warriors raises awareness and funds for childhood cancer. Childhood cancer is the #1 killer by disease among children yet ALL childhood cancer receives less than 4% on the National Institute of Health's Budget. 

Wyatt's Warriors are committed to helping raise funds and awareness to help in the fight for a cure for all childhood cancer. Wyatt battled DIPG which is currently an incurable form of childhood cancer, and he did so with such grace and strength. Every year 100,000 children's hearts stop beating because of pediatric cancer. 

Help us give to an amazing cause and help fight for these kids to help find better treatment options. You can call our office 660-679-6101 for a quote, tag your friends, and share this post!
