No Way We Forget, An Ode To 9/11

In memory of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, I wrote this poem…

No Way We Forget

Once in this spot they stood
Tall and proud
Overlooking Lady Liberty
A backdrop to the crowd

That day we remember
No way we forget
One plane, two planes
The pain and the fret

Our finest responded
No way they stand back
Not fearing the darkness
Just caring as they track

The dust settled down
No way to believe
The site and the loss
The might in which we grieve

But that’s not the story
No way it ends there
We rebuild and move on
Not filled with despair

We the people are strong
No way we get swayed
Liberty, justice, tranquility
Our history will not fade

That day we remember
No way we forget
One plane, two planes
The pain and the fret

Forever in this spot we stand
Tall and proud
Overlooking Lady Liberty
A nation unbowed

I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about leading-edge XM topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.
