It was 17 years ago, September 11th 2001, that two hijacked planes were crashed into the World Trade Center. Two other suicide flights crashed at the Pentagon in in a field in Pennsylvania.

If you old enough to remember, you know exactly where you were when you heard the news. I was doing the Hawk Morning Show and Sidney school was on a 2 hour delay because of a power problem. We were playing a joke and saying it was because of a snow problem and people were calling in snow activities in their area too.

We had just confessed that it was it joke and less then five minutes later, the planes hit the World Trade Center. We made the announcement and some thought it was another joke, SADLY it was not.

It changed the way we looked at things and treated each other....for a little while, then we went back to our old ways. I want to thank Jim Cobb for sharing this with me and everyone else

17 years ago last night, thousands of people went to bed with their loved ones for the last time. Some were excited, looking forward to the trip that they were taking in the morning. Others were dreading the usual commute to work.

How many of them were rushed the following morning? How many didn't make time to kiss their kids or their spouse? They mumbled a quick goodbye and headed out the door not knowing it would be the last time they would see their loved ones.

Tomorrow is promised to no one so take nothing and no one for granted. Tell them that you love them. Apologize even if it wasn't entirely your fault. Forgive, even if they don't know what they did was wrong.

Laugh, Cry, Scream. Go for a walk. Find shapes in the clouds. Do something nice for someone and let someone do something nice for you. Stop waiting for things to happen. Get up and enjoy life and while you're at it, help someone else enjoy their life as well.

Thank you Jim Cobb for sharing. I need to do this today.....and everyday.
