Hello You Beautiful People!
It is almost hard to believe that 19 years passed by since the United States was paralyzed by the hateful actions of a group of people. It was unprecedented, shocking, mind blowing, unfathomable, and profoundly sad. It affected everyone in some way whether it was personally, professionally, emotionally, financially or physically. We froze. We cried. We united. Over the years, we will always remember that fateful day. The pain has become a little bit less, schedules assumed their new normal and life started. That day will never be forgotten but we pivoted, adjusted and adapted the best that we could.
Here are some quotes referencing that fateful day:
If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate ~ Sandy Dahl, wife of Jason Dahl- pilot of Flight 93
You can be sure that the American spirit will prevail over this tragedy. ~ Colin Powell
Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed. ~ President Barack Obama in a 2011 radio address
Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and the ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children. We will always remember. ~ President George Bush
September 11th is one of our worst days but it brought out the best in us. It unified us as a country and showed our charitable instincts and reminded us of what we stood for and stand for. ~Senator Lamar Alexander
Living after this tragic day seemed impossible, however, we have made it 19 years! We are currently in another challenge that we are having to dig deep to get through. We can do it with the same strength, perseverance, and determination as we have done in the past.
Continue to be the amazing people you are by inspiring one another. If there is anything that we can be of assistance to you with, do ask. It might be to collaborate on ideas, obtain a different perspective have a venting session, or just a plain ole conversation with a human. Everyone needs to “get by with a little help from their friends”.
