9/11. It brings so many memories.
Friends staying at our house and all of us around the computer (no TV) watching the panic. The unknown. The Why?
Having a "connection" from California to New York to people that we never met as Morgan Stanley (the brokerage company the Toad works for) was housed in those Twin Towers. All of a sudden, the "big" things seemed so little in comparison to what families were going through.
In all the panic, confusion, anger, fear, there was LIFE.
A new baby girl born while her mother watched the news in the delivery room. A baby born with no idea of the horror around her. A baby girl who took her first breath as someone took their last. LIFE.
And every time I see that little neighbor girl playing and changing before my eyes I see LIFE.
