Today is 911 Remembrance Day. Friday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Damon Friedman, a retired Lt. Colonel, within the Special Operations community, joins us to discuss where our country is as a whole, in regards to unity. We must never forget 911 and its lasting heartaches. Yet we must remember forever the goodness it brought out in so many of us as we responded to people needing help. How can we rekindle that unity and know that we are Americans, blessed with morality and purpose, all for one and one for all?

Knowing God was calling him to minister to inner-city youth, Founder Bill Hobbs left his professional golf career in 1988. In 1997, he and his wife, Kerry, took another leap of faith by starting Urban Youth Impact. Because of his consistent compassion for the community, Bill became a trusted friend and father figure to the residents of Tamarind Avenue in West Palm Beach, one of the highest crime-ridden neighborhoods in the county. Because of Bill’s heart for these kids, Urban Youth Impact has grown into a highly respected and trusted faith-based non-profit ministry. “Mr. Bill,” as he is known to thousands of urban youth, remains committed today to this ministry and to support the leadership and vision of President/CEO, Chris Tress.
