That Fateful Day
A sea of American flags covers the lawn of a local business as it honors the thousands who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. I came upon it as I was rushing back to my office, pushing it to be on time for another appointment, thinking about all that I needed to do and wondering when I was going to get it done, and then, out of the corner of my eye I see it: whoa, what’s up with all the flags? And then it registers…..I slow down. I breathe deeply. I pause.
Over the next several days, we will have many opportunities to see again those scenes which are forever etched in our minds. We will hear the heart wrenching stories about those who were living extra ordinary lives until they died that day, and heartfelt stories about those who as a result of that day, began living extra ordinary lives. We will shed some tears, and relive our own memories of that day. Remembering what we were doing when we heard the news; what we did that day and the days after; what we felt and thought; and how our world changed--as individuals, as families, and as a country.
Founded in 2003 and based in Roanoke, Virginia, Extra Ordinary Living works with individuals, organizations and teams to identify possibilities, create opportunities, remove obstacles and through deliberate action, optimize results.
Usually the first question we are asked, is why Tiberius? Our trivia friends can often identify the references……yes, Tiberius was the 2nd Roman emperor, and yes, Tiberius is the middle name of James T. Kirk from Star Trek. One of our life mottos and business principles is “to learn from the past, look to the future while living in the present.” Thus, Extra Ordinary Living.
