Remembering September 11, 2001

Guest Author - Lynne Chapman

It is hard to believe that it was so many years ago when tragedy struck New York City and the world was silent, holding its breath as we all watched and waited. I found a sanctuary in the salon where I work.

Hair salons have traditionally been a place of friendship and of caring. The salon is a gathering place for friends and family. The family hairdresser shares in all kinds of family celebrations; engagements, weddings, anniversaries and births, proms and graduations. She cheers the babyís first steps, first haircut and first day of school. She is an encourager for proms, college and job interviews. She also shares in apprehensions and sorrows, grieving along with her clients during lifeís saddest moments.

So as I sit here, I remember being in the salon that morning in September, some years ago, I remember well, the warmth of close friends that was so evident. I remember the grieving, the comforting and the encouraging that passed between all who were present. I remember that we cried together, and cheered together as survivors emerged from the towers and we mourned together as the death toll rose. Since then clients and stylists have developed an even deeper bond. We have continued to encourage each other as we continue to deal with fear of the unknown.

This is what I remember about that day in the salon, September 11, 2001. Iím certain it was very much the same in every hair or nail salon across the country. People being there for one another is what life is all about. Thatís why I love the hairdressing business. And that is why, I can recommend this business to any young person looking for a future career. If you love people and love community, this is a great life.
