7 years later 9/11 still in our minds

It was 7 years ago today that everything changed for Americans and New Yorkers.  I don’t need to go into details about what happened and what came of 9/11 but those 3000 people went to work that day just like we all go to work.  They kissed their loved ones and commuted to work, just like we all do.  And in an instant, everything was gone.

9/11 was the first time that I was really scared for my life.  I think about that day a lot.  I suffered from Post Tramatic Stress Syndrome and couldn’t sleep for weeks.  It was a terrible day that I will never forget.

years later, 7 years later in fact.  There are still no new buildings, downtown is still a ghost town.

My life has changed so much since that day.  I have a beautiful wife, beautiful children, and people around me who love me.  And every day SINCE 9/11 I make sure to take a breath, and remember how lucky I am.  Because those 3000 people just did what everyone else does, and they never came home that day.  Their families lost them forever…

Never take for granted your life, no matter how crappy it may be going.  Next time you are bitching about oil prices, the housing collapse, how expensive food it, etc.  Just remember that you can still breathe, you can still live, and you can still tell your loved ones that you love them.

Never forget.  I sure won’t
