Thirteen years ago, I was holed up in an office in Bartow working some final details to achieve our purchase of PalletOne from IFCO Systems.
One plane had hit when I went in the meeting. Two more while I was in it. I raced home to watch history unfold.
I was reminded of many things that day:
Things change in an instant.
Man’s depravity knows no limits.
Extraordinary events provokes the ordinary to become heroes.
Sometimes it takes events like that to organize our priorities.
Unfortunately, our priorities don’t always stay aligned.
In sum, we live in a great country. A country that can be counted upon to respond to heroism when challenged.
God bless America!
