9-11 ~ Lest We Forget

For years now, my son, Jason Bonds, Battalion Chief of his city’s fire department, has climbed 110 stories in full fireman’s gear and wearing the photo and name of one of the New York City’s 343 firemen who died on 9/11.

This year, on 9/11, I am donating the proceeds from the sale (.99 cents) of my Monarchs and Painted Ladies to the Sons of the Flag, which provides support to veterans and first-responders, and their families.
