Today We Are All Americans
I was attending an executive seminar on brand building with my colleagues at Procter & Gamble when America was attacked. I will never forget the emotions of that day. Like many people, it was a defining moment in my life. The words of a French woman interviewed by a reporter still make me emotional when I reflect on that day – “Aujourd’hui, nous sommes tous Americains” (Today we are all Americans).
Today’s post is about remembering. Please visit the 9/11 Memorial Website, the Flight 93 Memorial, and/or the Pentagon Memorial.

On 9/11/2001, Brand America was wounded. We continue to seek the wisdom from the tragedy that touched the world. On this day, “We are all American”.
If you have a memory or reflection to share, take a moment and leave a comment. Let’s share thoughts on the wisdom we can/should glean from the wounds created on 9/11/2001.
