What Should I Do For Those I Care About On 9/11 and Every Day
It was 19 years ago, September 11th, 2001, that two hijacked planes were crashed into the World Trade Center. Two other suicide flights crashed at the Pentagon and in a field in Pennsylvania.
If you're old enough to remember, you know exactly where you wee when you heard the news, I was doing the Hawk Morning Show and Sidney was on a 2-hour delay because of a power problem.
We were playing a joke and said that it was because of a snow problem. We had confessed that it was a joke and 11 minutes later, the first plane hit the World Trade Center. It changed EVERYTHING, the way we looked at things and treated each other...for a little while.
I want to thank Jim Cobb for sharing this with me and everyone else:
19 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 rushing 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 to Jim Cobb for sharing this. This is something that we all need to hear today...and every day.
