When everyone is remembering 9/11, I hope that each one of you remembers the courage of each and every government worker who simply went to work the next day. For those of us who heard and/or saw planes fly past our building it is something that will never be forgotten. Each one of us heard stories of friends and family members who were lost, injured, or whose status was unknown. Some of us watched the Pentagon burn for days on end.
I work near the Pentagon. The plane that hit the Pentagon flew so close to the top of our 26-floor building that the whole building shook - I will never forget that feeling. Those of us who were there that day freak out a little every time a plane or helicopter flies a little close. We could see the fireball rising from the Pentagon & later, for days, the thick black smoke spiraling into the sky.
Life is so short. Tell the people you love, often, how precious they are to you.
Blessings to you.
