Today I learned: 1) that an airplane with 230 passengers mysteriously disappeared over the Indian Ocean and there are no survivors, 2) that a German mother of three is fighting to free her husband from a life-long prison sentence, 3) that a girl I knew from middle school died of leukemia survived by her husband and 3-year old twins. All of these stories have stirred deep emotions and even deeper gratitude for the charmed life that I lead. In fact, we know we should appreciate what we have. I stop every now and then think I want to hit the “pause” button. How can we do more? How can I do more?
