Boston Marathon Crisis and Why I Write Condolence Notes

To have another birthday is a privilege.

Blogging can be a quiet activity. Statistics can be small. It can be tempting to say, "Why bother? Nobody's listening" and take a few weeks or months off of posting.

But with the senseless crisis in Boston last week (I'm a recreational runner,) my commitment to sensitizing the world must step up to the line.

Let's review the most important precept of condolence:

We are powerless over the loss and subsequent pain, but saying "I'm sorry" and applying a sincere hug or handshake is an act you DO have power over.

You have the power to express that you care.

Share this thought with a friend, and thank you for caring!
