As we look back 12 years ago – no doubt people will be talking about “where they were” when the world changed on September 11, 2001.

I’ve told my story time and time again but today I want to share a very important list with you: a list of the men and women who didn’t return home on that historic day. This is what you should be thinking about.

This list should give you pause – and make you step back and really look at what is important in your life. Sometimes the items on your to-do list don’t really matter that much after all. Take the time to connect with your loved ones instead and really think about your wonderful life.
