Cal OES Director Issues Statement in Remembrance of 9/11 Anniversary

September11-False-Flag

A statement by Mark Ghilarducci, Director of the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services and top Homeland Security Advisor to Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr.:
“Today is a reminder that it is our duty to honor and pay tribute to all those we lost and whose lives were forever changed on this day just 12 years ago. Our thoughts and prayers will always be with the families and loved ones of the nearly 3,000 people that perished in the appalling acts of terrorism on 9/11. During one of our nation’s darkest moments, we also witnessed countless acts of heroism, bravery and human kindness as the nation worked to recover and rebuild. Since then, thousands of Americans have also sacrificed their lives fighting terrorism and maintaining our cherished freedoms at home and abroad. To all of them, we are forever grateful for their sacrifice.

            Today, I call upon all Californians to pay tribute to all these American heroes, by learning more about disaster preparedness and taking steps to be ready for all emergencies. Just a few simple steps to put together a basic disaster kit and talk to your family to create an emergency plan could make all the difference in the world when disaster strikes. Not only will you be joining the millions of Americans who now stand more resilient after 9/11, but you’ll also send a strong message of hope and inspiration for the next generation of heroes.”

During breakout sessions, students, faculty and staff facilitated workshops which allowed students to explore the meanings of sisterhood and brotherhood, understand campus data, discuss “who we are”, and prepare to be successful students at CSUSB. This event kicked off a year of powerful programming that will be facilitated collaboratively by students, faculty and staff. In addition, SAAS and SAAB also plan to be more visible on campus and in the community as the school year goes on by engaging in community service and serving as accountability partners to their peers to ensure that as their sister ad brother’s keeper they shall and will rise together.
