Last night as we strolled through Wall Street taking in the sights and sounds… simultaneously we looked up…embracing a moment we will never forget …arm in arm with my close friend from France we looked at each other… then looked up to the beaming lights to heaven…feeling the same heartfelt sadness of what has happened to our countries.
I remember that morning 9/11. I was flying to Florida at 8 a.m. for a meeting. I couldn’t believe the unreliable US Air flight arrived in Orlando 30 minutes early… all of us were surprised and applauding. The roars of cheer were quickly stifled. When I turned my phone on… there were 50 messages asking me if I was okay and if I knew… I hung up the phone and stood up in the main cabin shouting out to all the passengers to phone home….let your family and friends know you are okay. From that minute on our lives as we know it, our country as we know it… changed the world as we know it… and our hopes and dreams have changed…
We will never forget… We will stand United… and we will show them that our lives haven’t changed. We will continue to fight this war on terror… to make this a better world for our family… our children… our friends… and generations to come. I am proud to be an American… I am proud to be in New York City on the 15-year anniversary of 911 and I am proud that we are ONE, WE ARE FREE, AND WE BELIEVE …
