I heard this on TV as a New Yorker remembered September 11. It was printed
on one of the memorial walls.

Personally I think that Emily is referring to the insignificance of life.
We are only here for a very short time in the eyes of eternity, hence the
"hour" statement; and she is saying that we should live life the way that
we choose to because before we know it we will be gone and the human race
will move on without us, as much as we would like to think that it won't.

well and karma will find its way back around! :)

Why does she say that at only lasts an hour?

I believe that Emily is trying to say that life is what you make of it. You
can choose how wonderful or horrible things are, no matter what goes on. We
decide what happens.
