So, on this very somber day of remembrance, only the stories of those who lived it matter. I could write about where I was and what I was doing when the first plane hit. But, that story really means nothing compared to what was happening in those planes, those offices, and on those streets. It is important to remember to value the people around us for, in a moment, in a cockpit decision, all can change.
Hug your loved ones today...hug them often...tell them you love them. You just never know. The legacy of today is to truly value what we have been given, and make sure their stories are told.
