Manic Monday – Our lives can change in seconds…

Midnight Musings from our CEO

It has been one week since hundreds of people saw their lives change in just 11 minutes.

One gunman, many rounds of ammunition, 58 deaths, and the futures of so many people altered forever.

People across the continent have been affected whether directly or indirectly.  The sadness and senselessness of this event is only underscored by the increasing frequency of these horrific incidents. This Thanksgiving, I could not let the Las Vegas shootings of last week go unmentioned.

Today as you go about your activities, take a moment to remember just how fleeting life is and how quickly it can change.  Take time for gratitude and appreciation as you spend time with your family, your friends, or if you are spending time to reflect alone. Thank someone for a gesture of kindness no matter how small be thankful even the most mundane things in your world as they can be the most precious

Life can change in a second…..

Happy Thanksgiving
