With the anniversary of 9/11 I know how important it is to reach out to those you love on a daily basis and let them know how you feel. It isn't enough to do it on birthdays and special occasions. At any time the gift of life can be taken away from any one of us.
At no other point during my lifetime did that become more obvious than with the terrorist attack in NYC. It wasn't a natural disaster, like the tsunami or the hurricane that devastated so many lives, this was a man made disaster. Hurting and killing so many innocent people.
I hope that ten years later we are able to remember the past but look forward to the future hoping that some day all humans will value the life of another as that of their own.
Turn around and hug the one you're with. Tell them you love them. Send a card. You never know, it could be the last time you get a chance.
