Remembering 18 Years Post 9/11 – Are We Living With Purpose?
6,570 days, 157,680 hours, 9,460,800 minutes = 18 years!
While we reflect on Sept. 11, 2001, I’m pulled towards thinking about how it seems like a blink of an eye – until I look at those numbers!
I think about how I felt and what I saw in the days and months after this tragedy. The emotions. The actions.
Gratitude. Kindness. Sacrifice. Service. Pride. Purpose.
Purpose lights up for me because something awoke in me in the days after 9/11. I was determined to live differently, work differently, connect differently – with intention and purpose!
Maybe you felt something similar?
Admittedly, that lasted all of 3 months before I was back into my old habits and lifestyle.
Now, 18 years later, (what???) I can’t believe how quickly the years have rolled by – again, until I look at those numbers!
As I think about the lives lost and the dreams snuffed out on that September morning, I also recognize the reality of our finite time on this earth.
I want to honor those legacies through my daily and intentional actions. Through gratitude. Through sacrifice. Through kindness. Through purpose.
