Yup, here's me, who hasn't been posting.  Not going to talk about that today though.  As an airline employee, I traditionally do a post on 9/11 with the names of the employees who lost their lives that day.  I'm going to do that today also.  I will say, for better or worse, this is probably the first time where it seemed close to "just another day" for me.  Trust me, while I will never forget it, perhaps that is a good thing...just to remember the day without being overwhelmed by it.  I don't think anyone in my industry will ever forget it though.  Anyhow, hope everyone has a good day, and if you have time to take a moment for quiet reflection, I think that would be a good thing.
