As the holidays and year-end approach, many of us reflect upon the state of our lives, our work and the world we live in. I am always very cognizant of how fortunate I have been in my live, very blessed with a wonderful family and work I love. And I am also aware that this is not the case for a significant number of our fellow humans; that many struggle just to meet the basic needs of life, many are lonely, many have serious health issues, many live in countries that suffer under dreadful governments. We all should have compassion for others who may not be as fortunate as we are and we all should do what we can, at a macro and micro level, to make every human life one lived with dignity, respect, the fulfillment of meaningful work, the love and security of family and personal relationships and the opportunity for health and happiness.
Hoping you all have a wonderful holiday, relaxing and enjoyable, surrounded by those you care for and who care for you.
