In Remembrance

"Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror. The pictures of airplanes flying into buildings, fires burning, huge structures collapsing, have filled us with disbelief, terrible sadness and a quiet, unyielding anger."

~George W. Bush

I am hugging my loved ones a little bit tighter today, and remaining mindful of all of those who lost their lives six years ago today. Jamie dressed Elise in red, white, and blue for school today, and I thought it was a nice memorial. I have also been thinking of that day and where I was when this tragedy occurred. I remember gathering in a conference room with all of my colleagues from Ernst & Young and watching the events unfold on television. We were all concerned for our fellow co-workers in the New York office. Shortly after the towers collapsed, we were all sent home, and I spent the rest of the day watching the news coverage at home in complete disbelief. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the fallen today.
