Remembrance from the road 9/11

This is a shorter blog than most but felt I had to share –

I’m over 7k miles from home and currently in Lagos for work and people greet me and their first words after introductions – I’m sorry for your loss – then it hits me – they may be remembering fellow Americans that lost their lives 16 years ago today – but they are remembering anyone who lost their life. That tragic event changed people’s perception about their fellow man and the world in which we live.

Thinking of family and friends today. It’s a moment similar to the Kennedy assassination back in the 60s – the space shuttle disaster back in the 80s – you’ll never forget where you were when you heard the news.

Don’t lose faith in people. Believe that everyone is doing their best – have faith and people you meet from the sidelines may surprise you –

Be a positive change in the world today!
