    Mitchell College commencement speaker Daniel Holdridge, a survivor of 9/11 at the Pentagon, said one of his gifts to the graduates was called “90 minutes”, the time it took for him to tell his family to find out he was alive, and wants them all to take the time to tell the people close to them how them how they feel about them. After one of his lectures “90 minutes’’ lectures a woman approached him and said she wanted to give him her shoes. Two of her children had died by illness and suicide and she said he was the first person that knows what it’s like to walk in her shoes. (Dana Jensen/The Day)
