Not on 9/11, not this year.
I signed up for a great cause, Project 2,996. It rightfully seeks to shine the light on the victims of 9/11, instead of the heartless radical cowards who caused it.
As part of Project 2,996, the person I am writing a tribute to is Luis Eduardo Torres. An immigrant from Mexico, Luis started with nothing and worked his way up to being a senior broker at Cantor Fitzgerald, a job he ironically started on September 10, 2001. He was a bikerider, hiker and skydiver. This was a man who paid his dues, worked hard, and had accomplished alot. There are a few more details on Luis on his page at Legacy.com, and several people have left beautiful comments in the guestbook.
Take a good, long look in the mirror today. Enjoy the day, breathe the fresh air. Tell your family you love them. Find something you’re passionate about and charge ahead after it.
Because you never know what will happen tomorrow.
