Nearly 15 years ago the world changed for not only those in NY, but folks everywhere.
I was 9 years old when the Twin Towers were hit and countless lives were lost.
As I look out a window from where I’m sitting inside the Freedom Tower today, I am reminded of people’s strength and resilience and of how beautiful this world can be despite all of the pain and suffering.
Nearly 15 years ago, the ground below me was filled with rubble, the air smoky and saturated with sadness.
But right now, I don’t feel sad. I’m happy to look out at this beautiful, hustling, bustling city; the view is inspiring, energizing even.
With Lady Liberty looking on in the distance, sailboats are milling about and millions of folks are going about their days… probably finishing up work in anticipation of the weekend ahead.
I hope y’all finish off July on a fabulous note. Do something fun, spur of the moment, do something nice for a loved one, or even better, someone you don’t know at all. Life is fleeting, enjoy it.
Spread kindness and cheer, xo
