#1. September 7, 2011
Welcome back to school! Although I am stuffy and sniffling from a summer cold, my thoughts are turning to the school year ahead, and I have a favor to ask.
Will you take a minute to hit reply and tell me “What can I do to make your school year easier?” I would love to hear your thoughts about topics I should write about, or anything I can do to make this weekly newsletter more helpful for you.
See ya on the Net,

Including the first responders (such as firefighters, police officers and paramedics) nearly 3,000 people died in the attacks.
