That's easy. Because September 11th is one more reason I appreciate being able to help people with speeches. On the 10th anniversary of the attacks, I had the honor of working with a fire chief who would be speaking to a group, including his city's major, about 9/11 and the first responders who so bravely did their jobs.
As a speech writer, I can help someone take a special moment like that and turn it into something a little more memorable with the power of words. And that's why I honestly see speech writing as something that's a whole lot more than a job.
Of course I love it when moments are special because of something especially GOOD that happened all the way around. But life give us good and bad, and what was remarkable about 9/11 was the bravery that we saw and the good that ultimately came from it.
What I'll never forget about 9/11 is that this world needs all the good people it can get doing all the good they're able to do. There's never a time when we can't contribute and make the world a better place by giving the best of ourselves to others.
