I heard a most remarkable point of view last Saturday. A commentator mentioned the human capital lost on 9-11. . . including some of the brightest financial minds in the world. Who knows how their loss impacted the U.S. and world markets? Would the economy be such a mess if they had lived? No one knows, but the ripples of that day may be far wider than we realize.
Who can measure the impact one life can have on the world? It brings to mind movies like "It's A Wonderful Life" and many others, where seemingly ordinary people's influence changed countless lives, and sometimes, even society in general.
