We got an order from Discraft
today and have uploaded many more discs to our inventory, notably the Z Nuke
. The Discraft Nuke
is a must-have, very very fast driver. If you haven't thrown it, you will be amazed at the speed and extra distance you will get.
On to more important things than disc golf. On the ninth anniversary of the 9-11 attacks on the United States, I think it's important to take a moment to remember those that died that day, the heroes that participated in the rescue efforts, and the men and women that have since sacrificed their lives to protect our country (and others) from future attacks.
Everytime I see footage of the towers falling or the firemen running through streets clogged with ash and debris, I have to remind myself that it actually happened. It doesn't seem real. Surely, this didn't happen. There's no way a street in the United States could be so fraught with peril and urgency. But it did happen. And we'll never be the same. I can't even come close to imagining the suffering experienced that day or since. My heart goes out to the families affected by the events of September 11th, 2001.
It's been called the "Pearl Harbor" of our day. And maybe it is. It's a day that lives in infamy and will continue to give us pause each year. To remember that day and to hope for a better future. Here's to the future and to the memory of our brothers and sisters that have gone before us.
