Throwback Thursday | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

My son recently turned 18. LOTS of memories and emotions have been bubbling up 😭 one thing that I keep finding is pictures of him in and around the ponds & waterfalls. He simply LOVES them! So this one is my offering for Throwback Thursday.

Jacob has loved Koi and ponds since birth I think 😊 This was taken at the dedication to this teaching pond at a local school 16 or so years ago. This picture ended up on the “Ponds for Kids” booklet that promotes Ponds in schools. #Throwbackthursday

He was 2 in this picture 😊 This “Teaching Pond” is still being used to inspire and teach youngsters about science, ecology & even art. A BIG shoutout to the great educators that were and still are responsible for this school pond happening! Steve, Elizabeth & Christine – Y’all Rock! Keep up the good work!

Have a great #throwbackthursday!

9/11/2001… Never Forget! God Bless America 🇺🇸

A Heavy blow was struck against us all that day.

• 2,977 Americans were Murdered!

• 343 Firefighters died saving others! Many that survived are dying from cancer now at an alarming rate! Thank a Firefighter today…

We survived! We united! We rebuilt!

God Bless America! #neverforget

Its been 18 years now. My wife was pregnant with our son when it happened. He is 17 now and a senior in high school. Many in his class don’t know much of anything about what happened on 9/11! Watch the memorials with them today. Tell them what happened that day & how it made you feel! We owe it to our fallen brothers and sisters to Never Forget! #neverforget !

I still remember this like it was yesterday! My wife was pregnant at work when the towers were struck. Everyone was scared to death of what was next. So many died that day 😢 We can #neverforget

I’m going to hug my wife and my son a little harder today! We are going to talk and discuss what happened and why.

God Bless You All! & God Bless America! 🇺🇸

PS: Here’s a link to local coverage of 9/11 that morning by my old friend Bill Way. If you want a Live account of that day, listen to this… http://billwayshow.libsyn.com/the-91101-show#OoeJIyV0leTqC9Mf.01
