“Storytelling with a purpose.”  This is my favorite definition of
journalism.  The best truth is reported
through individual lives and experiences. 
Everyone…every single person on this earth…has an important story to
tell.  Ernest Hemingway encouraged young writers not to write about man, but about a man.

So, on this very somber day of remembrance, only the
stories of those who lived it matter.  I
could write about where I was and what I was doing when the first plane
hit.  But, that story really means
nothing compared to what was happening in those planes, those offices, and on
those streets.  It is important to
remember to value the people around us for, in a moment, in a cockpit decision,
all can change.

Hug your loved ones today…hug them often…tell them you love them.  You just never know.  The legacy of today is to truly value what we have been given, and make sure their stories are told.
