9/11 – Today’s Not Gonna Be Like Yesterday – Treasure This Moment
In what ways were you effected by the 9/11 attacks? It was a traumatic event of such magnitude that a massive number of people – an entire nation – experienced it as a pivotal moment in their life – everyone remembers, in vivid detail, exactly what they were doing when they heard the news.
A line was drawn in the sand that day, and no “tomorrow” was going to be like “yesterday.” That’s why I want to share a song with you today, the 15th anniversary of 9/11, that I wrote 41 years ago called “Today’s Not Gonna Be Like Yesterday.” It foreshadowed my traumatic brain injury, which occurred 36 years ago, and I think can serve all people as a reminder that we have no idea when, or how, a dramatic life-changing event will occur.
So let’s all treasure this moment. And this one. And this. Open your heart, and love.
