I generally try to keep my political opinions beliefs out of business, because I don't feel that they have any place here. However, with the events of the past few days, I did want to take a moment to pause and reflect on them.
Tragedies like Paris, Beirut, Kenya, or any other place are horrific. Not only for those directly involved, but for the entirely of the world. Please keep in mind that the people and organizations behind these events are not representative of the majority of their religions and/or races. The ones responsible are extremist groups.
Give thanks to be alive everyday. Be grateful for small blessings. Smile at strangers "just because." Show love to yourself and others.
