September 11, 2001 – Twenty Years On

Twenty years ago. Wow it’s hard to believe that 9/11 happened twenty years ago. American and world history changed on that day. This was a time that people cannot and shouldn’t forget. Make no mistake it was about terrorism but like anything there is always more to the story.

Heroes rose from all walks of life to rescue and save lives. They also came to find survivors and recover those who were lost in the chaos and destruction. It was about America coming together in community to lift-up one another during the dark days that would follow. A lot of people were there to pick up the pieces and sort through the devastation.

It is my hope that nothing like this will happen again anywhere on Earth. Let there be peace. Let love rule.

Remember New York, Arlington, VA and Shanksville, Pennsylvania on 9/11 and other days too.

Changes On The Job

Every job has some changes that happen over time. You get hired, train and after a while forces outside your control (like COVID) means you must adapt and adjust. This is something I am experiencing as my work tasks include changing how I do customer service and recruitment.

I still enjoy what I do because of how important the mission of my organization is to the lives of thousands. I am just saying that every day has the potential to be completely brand new in how one is supposed to do their daily work.

Covid has changed the game for so many and we have a responsibility to learn new ways of living, working, and doing the best we can. This is where experience can pay off for both employee and employer.

Rolling with the punches is the rule of the times we live in. Every day is a new adventure. Be ready and do what you can.

Quote Of The Day

I’m not sure the human psyche developed to hold, feel and respond to everything coming at them right now; every tragedy, injustice, sorrow and natural disaster happening to every human across the entire planet, in real time every minute of every day. The human heart and spirit were developed to be able to hold, feel and respond to any tragedy, injustice, sorrow or natural disaster that was happening IN OUR VILLAGE
