Remembering Important Things in Life

We hosted Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) on Cisco’s campus today for a meet and greet with some Cisco employees as well as some friends and colleagues in the Valley. However, he is not the topic of this blog entry.
In his opening remarks he honored Suzanne Calley, a Cisco employee who was killed five years ago today when her plane was hijacked and crashed into the Pentagon. He said that he walked by the little garden area outside of Cisco headquarters which is dedicated to Suzanne and someone had placed flowers on the bench in honor of her memory. A lot has happened in the last five years, however, I would be remiss not to honor my former Cisco colleague and let her know that she is still remembered…and not only on this infamous day by a US Senator, but every time someone walks by the little garden area at Cisco surrounded by the hustle and bustle of work, work, work. A little garden in the middle of everything can sometimes remind you of the important things in life. For that, we thank you and honor you, Suzanne.
