If you are my age there are a few days in your life that are frozen in time. When ever any one mentions those dates you can remember exactly where you were, what your were doing. For me there are three. The day President Kennedy was killed, the day Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed and 9/11..
We were gathered to begin the monthly branch manager's meeting in the conference room of the bank I managed. Someone received a call from home, we were being attacked. We pulled out the TV we used for training and so it began. My sister was on a plane in Chicago, it took hours before we could speak with her.
After about a hour of watching the TV, the "boss" we had at the time said OK folks doesn't matter if the world is ending, we have a business to run till it does. (what a jerk he was) I remember thinking, our world will never be the same and it hasn't.
I think those last few minutes before the planes hit, were the last time I really felt safe.
God Bless all those who lost their lives on that day and their families. God bless all those who struggle with health issues today because they put aside their own safety in order to help.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
