You just can’t forget where you were when it happened.
Have you ever shared personal stories about your experiences in life? A loss in your family of a loved one for example. You remember where you were when you learned the news.
A revelation or a lesson learned the hard way. You remember where you were and exactly what took place at that time. Your first pet – the day they came home with you.
Other moments are shared moments for many people.
People who were alive then speak about Pearl Harbor, D-Day the day their team won their first championship.
Tomorrow is the 20th Anniversary of 9/11.
Do you remember where you were when this happened?
In the Northeast of the USA many thousands of people lost their father, their mother, their daughter, their son or a friend or another loved one forever.
There are many lessons, discussions, politically staged events and constant newsreel stories of that day in 2001.
Do you have a lesson you have put into practice?
Consider this one thought – life is short. Make the most of every day.
If there is someone you’ve been meaning to call or meet with to say hi and catch up – Do it now!
If there is an organization you’ve been meaning to get involved with and volunteer – Do it now!
If there is a song you’ve been meaning to sing – Sing it now!
Time waits for no one.
Where was I that day?
I was at work. Our office was located in Old Greenwich, CT. Someone had a radio on and thought they heard an announcement they could not believe as the song was interrupted. They switched the station to WCBS 880 AM on the dial.
Everyone gathered nearby to hear what was being said over the radio. No one knew what to do. Many of the people we would each speak with were working in or near the World Trade Center in NYC.
Where were you that day?
What will you do differently than before to make the most of each and every day?
