We watched in horror and stunned confusion as the world seemed to implode into chaos: the World Trade Center towers, The Pentagon, a field in Pennsylvania. Our mutual sense of security, as we knew it and took for granted, changed forever.
So to those of you who lost a friend, colleague, loved one, relative–in their memory–do cherish their legacy, as they were that fateful day, pursuing their careers and personal lives.
And so to you, in tribute to your strength, especially this day, I admire you. I stand with you.
