Remembering 9/11 & the Importance of Family

Today is a day of remembrance for all of us. For some of us, it is a day to remember and pay tribute to those who lost their lives on the tragic day of September 11, 2001. For others, it is a day to remember loved ones and memories with them that feel so far away- almost as if they were part of another lifetime.

This day reminds me of how simple and powerful life really is. Although we are a species made up of different backgrounds, opinions, experiences, and preferences, we are united emotionally. When tragedy hits, we are in pain together. We are angry together. And all of us feel the natural pull to what's most important, the roots of life: family, friends, community, and life's beautiful simplicities.

It's amazing how each family on this planet has a story unique to only its members. Yes, we are all affected by historical events, but we are all affected differently. Today it is important to remember how our own families are special; to celebrate the memories we have with each other; to be thankful for life's simplicities; and to share and document our family's history for future generations, so that what's special about your family continues...
