Incredible tragedy struck our country 10 years ago next week. Anyone old enough to remember will never forget September 11, 2001. People all around the country opened their hearts and joined arms. We supported each other in clearing out rubble at Ground Zero, volunteering with the American Red Cross and making donations from $1 to $1 million. We assisted family, friends and even strangers who were impacted by the terror around our country.
The east coast was clobbered by Hurricane Irene one week ago. Homes destroyed, lives lost and hundreds of thousands without power. Some still anxiously await the flicker of light, a home cooked meal, and a hot shower. Local and national support was prevalent and we opened our hearts and homes once again. Often we get caught up in our own lives and our own world until disaster strikes. Why wait?
