We had the privilege of being in New York on Sunday and went to Ground Zero in honor of September 11. Here are pictures from The World Trade Center and the WTC Transportation Hub with a special light feature (the Oculus) that is only visible on 9/11.
The intention of this Wednesday Wisdom is not to focus on tragedy but rather the lessons learned:
“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
– Sandy Dahl, wife of pilot of Flight 93 Jason Dahl
“If I have any wisdom of this at all, it’s that life is precious, all life, our own and the lives of others. It made me commit to trying to be a better person.” – Harry Waizer, former Head of Tax for Cantor Fitzgerald
“For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter.” —Deepak Chopra
