0217 – 9-11 Series: What Has Changed in 10 Years?

When I look back, it feels like 9-11-2001 was one of those events that changed EVERYTHING.  Obviously, for some folks it did. and my heart goes out to those people that were directly impacted by the attacks.  For most of us, however, 9-11 didn’t change everything even though it felt and sometimes still feels like it did.  For the most part, for most people, life returned to a normal state.  Today we are going to take a look at some of the things that have changed and some things that haven’t changed and how that effects us and the likelihood of future attacks.
