Chapter 7

Remember the world 20 years ago today…

It’s been 20 years since the terrorist attack on the world trade centers. The memories of a different world. So much happened in the past 2 decades. So much happened in the past 2 years. And yet the memories from that tragic day are still bright in the mind’s eye. Images and videos burned into the memory banks that play back with clarity. Accessing these memories can make that September 11 feel like yesterday.

Where will the world be 20 years from now? How much will change? For better or worse. While I’m troubled by the evils and ignorance of man. I’m perpetually optimistic that prosperity will prevail. The world will be a better place 20 years from now. Safer. More inclusive. More peaceful. A workforce with a renewed understanding of meaningful work and its role in humanity.

My baby boy, who’s rolling around squeaking like a baby pterodactyl, will be in college 20 years from now. I’m investing money today so together we can review the value 20 years from now. I’m planting capital trees to grow up alongside him. Only time will tell how tall these trees will grow.
