My friend, Shari Harley, wrote a beautiful article commemorating September 11th. For her it is very personal since she worked in the Twin Towers at that time, but was not in the office that day.
She asks some very thought provoking questions:
- How is the world different because I lived on September 11th when others died?
- What have I done in the last 12 months to make the world smaller and to build community each time I get on a plane, walk in a store, meet someone new and have a conversation?
- Where have I played small…said yes when I meant no…said no when I wanted to say yes…or didn’t say anything at all?
I encourage you, as she does, to think about the contribution you are making to the world. Her article has reaffirmed my theme for the rest of this year: “significance.”
