Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 973 Remembering 911

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message Volume 973: Remembering 9/11 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message! Today I want to remember the 2,753 people who perished in the World Trade Center attacks that occurred on 9/11/2001. That day is a day that will be forever remembered in our hearts and in our country. For me, my family and my team, it will always be the day that we took a giant leap of faith, in the midst of confusion, chaos and heartbreak and forged forward with the first day that RE/MAX Professionals opened its doors.

We are proud of the company we have become today and so, so grateful that we live in a country which affords us the opportunities we have. I hope this week you will take a moment to remember those brave men and women who were the first responders on 9/11, as well as the many lives who were lost and the families who were impacted. We live in a great nation and 9/11 is a day that should never be forgotten or taken for granted! Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

We’re Still Standing by Hannah Schoechert, 7th grade student

Those twin towers
Standing tall with pride,
Fell with grieving hearts.
Stunned, America cried.

But we’re still standing.

Bin Laden tried
To crush our land,
But we stood our ground
With our flag in hand.

And we’re still standing.

Red for valor
And the blood that fell.
White for purity
Our heroes tell.
Blue for the justice
That will be done,
Proving once more
These colors don’t run.

And we’re still standing.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” - Harry S Truman

“We, the People, recognize that we have responsibilities as well as rights; that our destinies are bound together; that a freedom which only asks what's in it for me, a freedom without a commitment to others, a freedom without love or charity or duty or patriotism, is unworthy of our founding ideals, and those who died in their defense.” - Barack Obama

“I believe our flag is more than just cloth and ink. It is a universally recognized symbol that stands for liberty, and freedom. It is the history of our nation, and it's marked by the blood of those who died defending it.” - John Thune

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. It is September 11, or in other words a date that will forever be remembered as one of the greatest tragedies in American history books. While that sunny September day, sixteen years ago was filled with a tremendous loss and heartbreak, it was also filled with acts of courage, bravery, love and selflessness.

I hope you will take a moment to say thank you to the servicemen and women who gave their lives that day, and remember the innocent lives of nearly 3,000 people who died on 9/11/2001. We remember, and may we never forget.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“If we learn nothing else from this tragedy, we learn that life is short and there is no time for hate.”
—Sandy Dahl, wife of Flight 93 pilot Jason Dahl, in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

"For me and my family personally, September 11 was a reminder that life is fleeting, impermanent, and uncertain. Therefore, we must make use of every moment and nurture it with affection, tenderness, beauty, creativity, and laughter." —Deepak Chopra

“America was not built on fear. America was built on courage, on imagination and an unbeatable determination to do the job at hand.” —former President Harry S. Truman

“September 11, 2001, revealed heroism in ordinary people who might have gone through their lives never called upon to demonstrate the extent of their courage.” —Geraldine Brooks

“One of the worst days in America’s history saw some of the bravest acts in Americans’ history. We’ll always honor the heroes of 9/11. And here at this hallowed place, we pledge that we will never forget their sacrifice.” —President George W. Bush

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! Yesterday was a day of remembrance for many of us, myself included. As I reflect back fifteen years ago, I had a busy morning planned. We were preparing for our very first meeting at RE/MAX Professionals; we were officially opening our doors on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Frank and I were excited to present our agents with the vision of our company, and the goals we had set. This was it; our big day.

In between the morning meetings, I caught a waitress with tears in her eyes. Naturally I had to ask her why she was crying and that is when I learned a plane had hit the world trade center. As our agents filtered into the restaurant, the shock and panic was obvious, but I really had no clue the magnitude of what was happening.

In the midst of national chaos, we were able to band together and fifteen years later, I am still humbled and grateful. Our country stood strong, and so did the small group of agents who were the very first to be a part of RE/MAX Professionals. Each year I thank this group of agents, because without them we may not have been able to build one of the strongest real estate companies in the Valley. We have been able to help thousands of families since September 11, 2001. Today, RE/MAX Professionals has over 200 affiliates, and Frank and I couldn’t be more proud.

As we begin our week, please take a moment to remember the first responders, our armed services, and all the men and women who lost their lives on that tragic day. Let’s never forget.

Game 3 of 2001 World Series

by Nate Martinez

As many of you know from my Facebook status updates, I will be meeting former President Bush at the 5 Star Conference this coming week. I have had the pleasure of meeting a few celebrities and famous people in my time however I am particularly excited to meet Mr. Bush.

On the radio this morning they were recapping the highlights from the Diamondbacks game last night (what a great game!). Now I don’t usually pay any attention to the radio DJ’s however they peaked my interested when they brought up game 3 of the 2001 World Series – the game President Bush pitched the opening ball for.

Did you know the catcher was really a secret service guy dressed in a Diamondbacks uniform? President Bush has been the only President in history to pitch the opening ball during a World Series game. And what a game it was – what a time it was for our Country.

It is a bit surreal to think the Diamondbacks could make it all the way to the World Series this year – of all the years to do it – on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 and ten years after the one and only time they have been to the World Series as a ball club. On one hand, I’ll be rooting for my home team to take it all the way and on the other praying for those who were impacted by the 9/11 tragedy. Whatever you are doing this weekend, I hope you take a moment to honor and celebrate those we died on September, 11th 2001 – “never forget.”
