We are writing history.
What kind of lessons will future generations learn from the decisions we make today?
Like most people, I woke up this morning remembering where I was eleven years ago today. Just weeks away from my first child’s due date, I watched the horrific events unfold on television with my colleagues at work. I recall feeling panicked…would I be able to properly protect my sweet baby in this world?
Sixteen days later I held Jackson in my arms for the first time and knew that I couldn’t imagine a world without him. And that as his mother, I would do my best to raise him well. I was struck then with the awesome responsibility of being a parent and it hit me again this morning.
During this politically charged season filled with daily debates from those running in the election (and even more from those watching them), I vow to make a difference at home.
Because while I’m not leading a country or even a company, I am raising a family. A job with significant importance. And just like our country’s leaders, the decisions I make today will most certainly have an impact on the future.
Where were you on 9/11?
What decisions are you making today that will last a lifetime?
