Now for a little personal note. :)

Today is 9/11. It's hard to believe that 11 years have passed. You probably remember exactly where you were and what  you were doing. I remember where I was. I had just flown into BWI a few hours previously. I was getting ready to go to work when my roommate came down and told me that a plane had just crashed into a building in NYC. I was in shock. Having just been in a plane myself this was all surreal. What was happening? Then a few hours later, I lost my job. I have very close friends in NYC and I remember frantically trying to get a hold of them. The dark cloud hung over the nation and my heart that day.

Like you, I have many memories of September 11. Living in the DC area certainly made everything all the more real. (Perhaps that is why the Marine Corps Marathon will always be my favorite 26.2 race.) You may have lost someone or know someone who did. Regardless of the how, we were all affected. Life changed for all of us.

So today, as I reflect on what happened 11 years ago I think about those people in my life that I love. Care about. But do they know that? While 9/11 is now a National Day of Service, let's also make it a National Day of Love. Put aside those petty arguments. Bitterness. Resentment. And all those other negative things that are making you unhappy. Call, post on their Facebook wall, send a Tweet, handwrite a note, do a kind deed-something! Yes, you might not agree with their politics or whatever, but at the end of the day are you going to remember that you don't see eye-to-eye about everything or are you going to regret that you didn't let them know that you love them?

So my friends, go out and spread some love!

PS: don't forget about tonight's chat at 8pm EST!

PSS: We love you.
