If you have followed my blogs and social media through my many transformations over the years, you know that one thing I do practically every year is pay tribute 9/11. This day touched me so much because the day changed the world and changed my life. For so many years after the event, I had a dark, eery feeling about the future. However, in recent years, the fog has finally cleared.
I still watch the videos and shed a tear about the events of that day. No matter your political beliefs, religious beliefs, or racial makeup, we all realized that these people who died were humans who lost their lives in a very horrific way. We had the ability to watch everything unfold on television play-by-play. But many people perished that day never knowing what was going on. Today, 20 years later I’m still touched by this event. It will undoubtedly be something that is the most monumental events that has ever happened in my life. That day was truly a humbling, haunting experience and I still can’t believe it was 20 years ago today. It still feels like just yesterday.
This video in this post is one that I still watch from time to time because it includes the real voices of people who lost their lives that day. Sometimes all you will ever have of a loved one is a memory. Despite how bad this day was, the good thing about it was that some of those who passed away were able to record their last words on voicemails. Some were able to say their last “goodbyes” and “I love you’s” knowing they would never see their family again. This event reminds me of how important it is that we cherish each day and try to love hard because we never know what the day will bring.
