Everyone of us remembers where we were on 9/11. What do you remember of that day and thereafter? George Santayana, said, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” So true, but how do we remember? Do we remember with parades, memorials, wreaths, and prayers or do we make it part of our everyday lives?
There were many heroes that day: from the first responders, the firemen and policemen, to the National Guard pilots to the individuals helping the wounded, searching for anyone in the rubble. We can all be heroes in our own way from 9/11, teaching our children to be respectful of one another by our own example. Teaching through example that human life is to be cherished and that each person is a vital contributor to our way of life. It doesn’t matter who you are or what possessions you have amassed, every person has value. If human life had a great universal value, 9/11 would have never happened. It is my firm belief we need to look within and cherish who we are, what we are and treat each other with dignity.
Let’s be extra good to each other. Let’s be REALTORS!
Until Next Monday…
