Small 9/11 tribute

In remembrance of the terrible event which changed America, Rev. Smith today made a small gesture to the brave souls who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, by playing the numbers 9-1-1 in the New York State Lottery. “It’s not much, I admit,” said Smith, “but the proceeds of this lottery go to fund schools in New York state. That’s helping kids, some of whom are no doubt victims of that tragic event of one year ago tomorrow. And that’s important to me.” Should those numbers happen to be drawn, Smith stands to win up to $2,607,250.
