It has been a decade since the unprecedented terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Despite the time that has passed, our memories of that day remain fresh and raw. More than 3,000 lives were lost in the attacks at New York City and the Pentagon as terrorist hijackers flew two planes into the World Trade Center and one into the Pentagon.
I was going through some old files the other day and stumbled across a handwritten note from a former colleague of mine. Reading the note again triggered memories about that particular time of my life and my career. Later, I thought about other notes I had received over the years and how the art of the handwritten note seems to be disappearing.
Tomorrow is the ninth anniversary of 9/11. Most of us can remember where we were and what we were doing the moment we heard about the planes flying into the World Trade Center buildings and the Pentagon. Unlike normal days where we go about our business, many of us knew our lives would be changed forever.
