I was having a conversation with a couple of friends recently about time and how quickly it seems to be passing by us all when the topic turned to September 11th, 2001. It is unbelievable that it will be ten years this coming Sunday since I awoke to my roommate slack-jawed and gawking at a plane crashing into the tower on TV. I was sleepy eyed and confused, thinking he was watching some end of the world movie, it must have taken me 30 minutes to be convinced that it was real. Ten years later it still feels pretty unreal that something like that could have happened and I am certain that the families of the victims of 9/11/2001 will never stop feeling the aftershocks of that awful day. Ten years later I hlive on the other side of the country, I have completed two degrees, I changed careers and started my own business and I have grown and changed in countless ways. Let us all remember as we hold the space for the victims of 9/11 to be thankful for this life that we have, for the opportunities and freedom to work towards our aspirations and to enjoy all of these moments. We can never know what the next 10 years will bring.
