Remembering September 11, 2001 – words from Ranger Up.

Ranger Up is a team, rather than an individual. So I don’t know who exactly this quote belongs to.
9.11 isn’t a day to remind myself about terrorism. Instead I remember our reaction: Firefighters, police and EMTs rushing into burning buildings in NYC. Troops doing the same in DC. Citizens grounding a flight to protect their fellow man. There will always be evil. There will always be enemies. There will always be attacks. But in America there will always be heroes, and with them, we can deal with anything. RIP to those we lost that day and since. Thank you to each of you – heroes one and all.

Check out the Ranger Up site at the link above. And read through Nick’s Rules on Leadership when you have some time.
