The past month has been full of remembrance, thanks and gratitude for all we have in life. Everyone experienced the marathon bombing and the fiery capture of the culprits differently. We’re all processing it the meaning of these events and affected by them in a unique way.
Fortunately, such events bring out the best in humanity and the beauty of life. Sometimes we need these reminders.
- Steven Tyler and Joe Perry dedicate this version of Dream On to the people in Boston
- There are so many stories of survival and how people came together to support each other, and forming lasting bonds.
It strikes me, the reason that so many good people are caught up by these tragedies is because most people are good and it’s just a few bad ones who can cause so much pain.
Easter is a great day to recognize the power of hope and determination. Weather we are challenging ourselves to run 26.2 miles, or to better our lives through education, improving the lives of others through service, coping with the loss of a loved one, or learning to walk with a prosthesis. We’re all connected, we’re all bound together through experience and this wild ride called life.

I haven’t seen all of these movies yet, but totally agree with the list so far:
1. Babies – shows the first year of 4 different babies around the globe
2. Fresh – shows organic food production compared with mass-produced farming
3. Girls – shows the struggle some girls go through to get an education around the globe
4. The Cola Road – documents a life saving program of distributing needed health remedies using Coca-Cola crates
5. Jobs – the life story of Steve Jobs as he founded Apple
6. Happy – What is really at the root of happiness?
Just in case you didn’t see this already. The city of San Francisco California and the Make a Wish foundation gave a Leukemia survivor a day to remember, super hero for the day.
