Take a Moment

It is hard to believe that it has been twenty years since 9/11.  As I heard one pundit say, “That is almost a generation ago.  It is turning from a memory to history for many people.”  The memories of that day remain fresh in my mind.  My mother calling us in Chicago and telling us what happened.  Spending the day with a business school friend whose brother perished in one of the towers.  Wondering if colleagues I had worked with that summer were OK. 

Despite all of our challenges, the United States remains a special place.  We have freedom to question our government.  We have freedom to debate each other.  We have opportunities others do not. 

Take a moment to remember the good about our society today.  Take a moment to do something good today.  Honor those that died on September 11, 2001.
