  • Thank you for the great portraits that displayed the tragedy of September 11th. It was kind of you to share these with me. The terrorists may have hurt us, but they will never humble us. America's leadership, strength, and history will lead us to overcome this tragedy. We will not despair, and we will be strong. All the best! You are a talented artist.

    Jeb Bush, Former Governor of Florida
