“On this day... 18 years ago 246 people went to sleep in preparation for their morning flights. 2,606 people went to sleep in preparation for work in the morning. 343 firefighters went to sleep in preparation for their morning shift. 60 police officers went to sleep in preparation for morning patrol. 8 paramedics went to sleep in preparation for the morning shift. None of them saw past 10:00am Sept 11, 2001. In one single moment life may never be the same. As you live and enjoy the breaths you take today and tonight before you go to sleep in preparation for your life tomorrow, kiss the ones you love, snuggle a little tighter, and never take one second of your life for granted.”

such a reminder.  Thank you

We often take our lives for granted, and sometimes we are in fights with those we love most at bedtime, and sometimes we just think things will be status quo tomorrow.
Even those of us not directly hit on 9/11 were affected by it.

We all remember the New York City skyline, changed forever

You are welcome.  This says it all so well.

We do, we never know when our time will come.

The skyline, people all over, all were changed forever.

no we don't. I read in another forum how sometimes a triviality made the difference in who lived and who didn't on that day... it was no longer a matter of age or health or "how good we were."

Yes, everyone was changed. And many of the deceased had friends and relatives all across the nation.

Exactly, even if we didn't personally know anyone, most of us like me, know someone who did.

we need to remember how we were. At least for one day.

Who was President at that time? Wasn't it one of the Bush's?
