Back to Normal?

September 19, 2001 By Gary Kayye, CTS
Well, it's over a week after the worst tragedy in American history and life is attempting to return to normal.

But, will it ever be normal again?

I'm still in shock.

Now the economic impact is becoming painfully clear. Everyone's talking about how much money this will cost our economy. And, how many people who are losing their jobs due to a slow-down in travel and the fear and uncertainty. Sure, this is terrible, but we will recover. Our economy is not the real loss here.

The less obvious, but more unfortunate loss is the loss in brain power.

Do you realize the number of geniuses we lost last week? Some of the smartest financial minds of the world were lost in that tragedy. Almost 40 countries lost super-smart financial brains behind their businesses when those twin towers collapsed. Our military lost some of the world's best strategists. So many lives and so much brain power.

I think that will ultimately be counted as a major, if not the major, tragedy.
