Top of Mind Thursday Sept 12, 2013: The Day After

Top of Mind Thursday
Yesterday was the 12th anniversary of 9/11 – the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon that dramatically changed our lives.

Leverage2Market LogoI distinctly remember the day after 9/11/01 – not knowing how bad the damage was, how many people had died, if there were more attacks to come, how the country would react.

A dozen years later we still feel the pain of what happened that day, similar to the way an earlier generation experienced Pearl Harbor again and again each December 7th. We still fight in two wars that resulted from the aftermath of 9/11, and we still struggle to find the right role for America in the Middle East and the world.

However, what strikes me most is our resiliency. We’ve applied many of the lessons from 9/11, whether improving emergency response and security, to strengthening building codes, and building communities to respond to disasters.

Not all is perfect. There’s room for improvement in many areas. Yet after each disaster we pull ourselves together, assess the damage, and focus on how to do better in the future. There’s always a day after, with the opportunity for change, improvement and a better world ahead.
