Citizen, Husband, Father, American – Actor Gary Sinise Finally, after weeks of practice and preparation, the golden hour has arrived for both cast members and playhouse enthusiasts. The stage is lit by one lone ceiling lamp, dangling from a frayed, seemingly infinite wire falling from the darkness above them, and moving ever so slightly back and forth. Its soft radiance casts a circular, warm glow towards the front row of the theatre as the actor’s movements onstage remain shadowed and restless. The side-by-side, crushed red-velvet chairs anchored onto the floor offer a little less padding than desired. A late-arriving ticket holder bumps and shoves their way through a cramped third aisle, searching for their seat assignment which, according to a […]

Jacksonville, NC – Today, we again turn our thoughts to the fallen heroes of September 11, 2001. Proudly we stand in their memory and acknowledge their ultimate sacrifice in lower Manhattan, New York; a field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania; and the Pentagon in Arlington County, Virginia. It’s hard to believe it has been eleven years since that tragic day in which 2,977 of our fellow countrymen were killed, but history tells us otherwise. It was a day that changed so much about who we are. Never again can we take our freedom for granted; neither will we allow the enemy to take away from us what we hold dear without a fight. We will be ever watchful over our communities, our […]
