Boston Marathon Tragedy

Boston Marathon Tragedy

There is always a weird mental battle the day after a tragedy to carry out normal day to day tasks.  Part of you wants to jump back into the routine of life but then your mind wonders to the families dealing with loss and people in the hospital fighting for their lives.  The daily routine now seems unimportant.

Life is fragile.  We don’t know what tomorrow will hold.  We are not guaranteed another day, another hour, or another second of life.  Today I want to encourage you to live every moment of every day as if its your last.  My wife and I have a life philosophy.  That philosophy is, “You have one life to make a difference and one life to make a change.  Today, what are you going to do with your life.” How will you use the life you have to make a difference?

Today I pray for the people directly affected by yesterdays tragedy will be comforted by friends and families around them.  I pray they will not feel alone but surrounded by an army of people that care for them.
