Thought For The Day

The following are the quotes that I found moved me the most when reflecting upon the tragedies of 9/11/2001, 20 years later…

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.” (Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl.)

“For me and my family, personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.” (Deepak Chopra)

“Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost, a way to reclaim the spirit of unity that followed 9/11.” (Barack Obama)

“I give speeches around the country. I tell how Stanley and I made our way out of the tower. Life is precious, I tell them. It can be gone in an instant.” (Brian Clark, 9/11 survivor who worked on the 84th floor of 2 World Trade Center.)

“On September 11, I always take the day off. I want to be in a peaceful, quiet place praying. It is a day I both mourn and celebrate.” (Genelle Guzman-McMillan, the last 9/11 Ground Zero Survivor pulled from the wreckage 27 hours after.)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
