I know today is a difficult day for many. It’s hard to believe 9/11 was 19 years ago. I remember where I was and what I was doing like it was yesterday. The days and weeks that would follow were filled with stories of heroism and heartbreak. I think about how I will tell Marin about that day when she’s old enough. Our world changed forever after that day. More than anything that day taught me the importance of saying “I love you.” You never know when it might be the last time you get to tell someone that. Wishing you all a restful weekend.
