Honoring the Past, Embracing the Future

Time can bring you down,
Time can bend your knees.
Time can break your heart,
Have you begging please,
Begging please.
-Eric Clapton

A bit of sad yet extraordinarily important business shall occur this morning at 10:00 Eastern Time.  The National September 11 Museum, which shall officially open one week from today, shall commence its week-long Dedication Period with a special Ceremony.  As per Joe Daniels, the President and CEO of the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, "the ceremony will include stories that will be told in the Museum, reminding us of the history of the attacks and the acts of heroism, compassion and kindness that were our response."  You may - if you wish - watch the Ceremony live by accessing the Museum's web site, which is www.911memorial.org

Life is indeed a forward-moving exercise.  Yet, in order to keep sight of where you are going, you need to never lose sight from whence you came.  Pat Harrington's lovable Building Superintendent Duane Schneider on One Day At A Time  was spot on when he constantly reminded Annie Romano and her girls to "Always remember and never forget."  Those words rang true when he said them.  They ring true today.
