On my drive home from work on Friday, I was listening to the news that was coming from Paris. It brought back a lot of feelings and emotions from September 11th. I remembered the sense of uncertainty about what was happening and what the future would look like. I remember the unity and the determination of the American people. The same has been happening in France.
I wasn't in New York and I wasn't in Paris, but to a very small degree I shared their sorrow. I am grateful that I can remember those feelings to better understand those around me.
