On this day... 17 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift of saving lives. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted. ?????????? Never forget.
And, I would add, turn off the TV, put your phone down and remember life is not casual...it's a MIRACLE. Don't let the pressures of life demean the truth, and that truth is that every one of you is important, is valuable, and has the power to make a difference in someone else's life. Don't wait for a disaster.
Technology has made life convenient but it's also built a barrier between us. Eat dinner together. Chat with your neighbor. Smile at someone bc you actually looked at them. When it's all said and done, we only have each other. It's sad we have to spend so much time maintaining machines and our conveniences that we have to force time with people and loved ones to stay connected. But, do it anyway bc in the end we only have each other..
