As I'm sure we all know, this is a day in history none of us will ever forget. With so many stories, memories and emotions tied to this day I wanted to take the time to reflect on what became of us after the fact.

I can't remember another time (at least in my history) where so many people came together. It's easy for all of us to get caught up in our own day to days. Each of us with our own agenda and not really giving much thought to anyone or anything else. While all of this togetherness had come from a place of tragedy, it also helped us realize not only what is truly important but what is truly possible when we decide to give of ourselves and each other for the good of a common goal. There doesn't have to be a tragedy that happens for each of us to realize something as easy and as powerful as this.

It's said that with every loss there comes a seed of equal or greater success. What did we get from this loss? Strength, connection, giving, honor and most of all a feeling of being united. Let this be a day for all of us to remember who we are and what we are capable of. Never in my life had I been so proud of those who protect and serve so that each of us can go on living our lives in abundance.

So let today serve as a reminder of what you're capable of and what you are truly grateful for. To all of those who spend their days protecting and serving so that we can all go out and live our lives, this one is for you...THANK YOU!!
