Vin Scully on 9/11 Anniversary
When COVID first began to spike I spoke with Vin Scully, who touched on how we got through the events of 9-11. He said, "firefighters and first responders were going up the stairs while we were going down the stairs" of the World Trade Center. With a sense of gratitude, he reminded me that we always always emerge as a stronger, more capable country after events like Pearl Harbor and 9/11.

When the President urged people to go back to work, Scully said,"baseball gets out of the dirt, brushes itself off and will follow his command, hoping in some small way to inspire the nation to do the same."
The WWII generation has seen the country emerge from countless hardships: the Depression and recessions, multiple wars, polio, racial strife, the Cuban Missile crisis, and of course, 9/11. As we observe the 75th anniversary of the end of WWII it's a good time to observe their cool sense confidence and patience as people return to work, kids go back to school and sports return under new conditions as a cure is sought.
