No parking today. Remembering 9/11

With all our busy schedule these days, it's hard to find time to stop and reflect but with today marking eleven years since one of America’s saddest days, we are making time to remember the lives that were lost and changed forever.

Unfortunately, reprehensible behavior is part of human nature and the only way for us to truly combat hurting one another in the present and future is to remember and learn from our past as not to repeat it.

Personally, having had a too-close-for-comfort view of that unforgettable event has strengthened our conviction to respect, value and honor this beautiful fragile world of ours and its inhabitants of every race and religion.

Today we decided to stop and smell the vanilla.  We’ll see you tomorrow at Fairfield University bookstore.
