Today is one of those days.
Today has always been one of those days.
Today will always be one of those days.
Everyday that passes shapes us in some way.
Some days define who we are.
Some days remind us of who we were.
And some days give us a glimpse of what we may become.
But then you have one of those days like April 17th 1999.
Days like that change who you were, who you are, and who you will be.
You may never experience one of those days.
Or you may choose not to recognize it as one of those days.
Days like today are special.
Days like today make you appreciate all you have, all you have overcome, and prepare you for all that has yet to come.
Days like today make you strong, they make you humble.
Because if it weren’t for days like today, we wouldn’t be ourselves tomorrow.
