I can’t believe it has been 20 years since this tragic event. I lived only 30 miles from New York City at the time. We could see the smoldering towers for many days and even weeks. We lost 26 people from my town and there were countless stories of people that called in sick that day or missed their train and were supposed to be there, but were not.
I wanted to send out a reminder for all of you to appreciate who you are and what you have and what good people you surround yourself with. We never know when will be our last day on this Earth, so let’s make each day count. Say I love you to the people that matter. Hug your kids every time you can. Hang out with Mom or Dad and reminisce with them. Any of these experiences that you have, could be your last memory with them.
My heart goes out to all the families that lost someone that day. No one saw this coming. Husbands and wives kissed their spouses when they left for work that day, and they never returned. What do you want your last interaction to be with loved ones? That is what we need to do all the time. Love like there is no tomorrow. Say what is important. Appreciate every day we have.
Until next month, stay well everyone. You are all worth the effort!!!!
