Dear Friends,

Thank you for taking the time to view this presentation and your interest in the Heart of America Quilt. We began as a means to help children feel a sense of helpfulness and healing surrounding the events of 9/11. On that journey we found that it was our nation and our world, young and old alike that need to feel that sense of unity. We hope this fills you with a sense of pride in our country. While the events of 9/11 brought our country to its knees in sorrow, it sent us soaring in patriotism. We stand united as families, communities, a nation as a whole to unite with other countries for the betterment of the world.

May you find joy in the unity we are creating together.

Susan Morissette, President
