I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore. Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Moved to Grand Rapids to go to Calvin College. Fell in love with GR and have been here since! (Go Beer City USA!)   Big fan of crime TV, the '90s (scrunchies! Saved By the Bell!), my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching, drinking on patios, playing the most inappropriate cards in Cards Against Humanity, and my dear dear family.

Grand Rapids Remembers 9/11 with Boy Scout Salute, ‘Never Forget’ Exhibit at Ford Museum

 

As the nation remembers the tragic events of 9/11, so does Grand Rapids.

Today marks the 13-year anniversary of the attacks on the towers of the World Trade Center in New York, Sept. 11, 2001. A hijacked plane struck The Pentagon outside Washington DC and another crashed just outside Shanksville, Pa. Almost 3,000 people lost their lives, including firefighters, rescue workers, and police officers trying to aid the victims.

Today we pledge to never forget those people and to never forget the events of that day.

A day-long Boy Scouts salute, a special remembrance program, and "9/11 Never Forget" mobile exhibit tours are taking place in at the Ford Museum in Grand Rapids today as we remember 9/11/2001.

If Matt Nathanson's music career ever peters out (which it won't, because he's awesome), he could probably make a legit living as a comedian. He's charismatic and hysterical. He's got a way of completely engaging a crowd, which he definitely did at his sold-out show with Gavin DeGraw at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park July 15.
