“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
Sandy Dahl, wife of pilot Jason Dahl, who was flying United 93 (2002)
It is hard to believe it has been seventeen years since the world as we know it changed forever. 9/11 has been called the “Pearl Harbor of our generation” and even now, years later, it invokes an emotional response.
What I love about this quote is that it is timeless. “Life is short and there is no time for hate.” It applies no matter the day, no matter the season, no matter the challenge you are facing in life.
Life is short.
Wrestle with that in your mind for a few minutes. Life is short. Has it sunk in yet? It’s been seventeen years since we were so violently reminded that life is short. It has flown by in the blink of an eye. The next seventeen years will fly by too. How do you want to remember them?
“Life is short there is not time for hate.”
