Monday Moments: Choices

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live. ~ Flora Whittemore

One thought for this Monday moment — I saw interviews with individuals who escaped and survived, with first-responders who assisted, and with friends and family members who lost loved ones.

But one group of people I would be interested in hearing interviews from, and I know there have to be some out there, are those who, for one reason or another, made a choice the morning of 9/11 to do something different. Maybe even just one thing, maybe even something that wasn’t a choice but something that just happened that day, that took them away from their usual routine. Just enough that they typically would have been in the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, or traveling on one of those planes, but ended up not doing their normal routine. And in so doing, they ended up somewhere other than where they would normally have been in those moments. They ended up surviving because of that choice, whatever and why-ever it was made. How did that change the way they look at life?

I think those interviews would be fascinating to hear.
