Over the years I have heard many stories from people who were here on September 11, 2001, and this particular story has stuck with me.
On that morning, one of my old bosses was to attend a breakfast and business seminar at Windows on the World, that started at 8:00am.
If you knew this woman like I do, you would know that she does not cancel any of her plans. Seriously.
That day, she woke up, and uncharacteristically decided not to go to the meeting. Instead she just headed to work.
She told me one time, she has no idea why she didn’t go. That she had just woke up that morning and said, “Eh. Forget about it.”, and didn’t give it a second thought.
As you can imagine, this woman is thankful everyday for her change of plans, and she shows it by living her life to the fullest.
