Where Were You?

September 11, 2022

With gratitude to my long-time super friend, and colleague of equal status, John Vidakovich, who found and shared this —

[Last] night 21 years ago, 246 people
went to sleep in preparation for their
morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep
in preparation for work in the morning
tomorrow. 343 firefighters went to sleep in
preparation for their morning shift. 60 police
officers went to sleep in preparation for
morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep
in preparation for the morning shift of saving
lives.

None of them saw past 10:00 am Sept
11, 2001.

In one single moment life may
never be the same. As you live and enjoy the
breaths you take today and tonight before
you go to sleep in preparation for your life
tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a
little tighter, and never take one second of
your life for granted.

As Alan Jackson sang, “Where were you when the world stopped turning on that September day?”
