Open Letter from Parthenia, CEO/Founder

Today is 9/11 for those that have not heard my story, I thank God for allowing me to be here today living my purpose through The Warford Foundation, Inc.

September 11, 2001, I was on active duty in the Army stationed at the Pentagon however, this particular morning I was next door at Fort Myers getting my retirement physical. I remember being very upset because the lab tech was late which meant I was going to miss a meeting. Little did I know that the lab tech really saved my life, you see the meeting was right where the plane hit the Pentagon killing my mentor and several other high ranking military soldiers.

So on this day 9/11 I sit quietly thanking God for allowing me to still be here. I use to question why I was saved, but now I know it is to continue living my purpose.

Warm regards,

Parthenia Warford
