Friday Five: A Day to Remember

Today is always a day to take a moment and remember those lives lost in what was one of the most unthinkable and astonishing events. I had the honor of visiting Ground Zero last year but I could not bring myself to take pictures. I wandered, read, paused, taking it all in all while saying silent prayers. It had to be one of the more sobering moments of my life to really be present in a place of complete tragedy. 

Instead of listing five of anything today, I'm going to do five things instead:

pause, reflect, pray, say "I love you," and hug someone close

I encourage you to do the same. Honor those we lost, remember them, and be grateful for what you have in your life now.
