In light of the news about Kate Spade, Anthony Bourdain, and another event happening close to home that will never make the national news, I hope that you all will be good to each other.
I hope you know you’re not alone.
I hope you’ll try to understand one another. And I hope that, at times, you’ll succeed.
I hope that you’ll be kind even when it’s hard, and that, in those times, you’ll try even harder.
I hope you remember that your words truly matter; that your smile can transform someone’s day.
I hope that you know that nothing is forever, and that includes your pain.
I hope you know you have a place, a purpose, a value, a beauty that can change someone’s world.
I hope you have hope for yourselves, and that you have hope for one another.
And I hope that you know that if you believe you will be ok, then eventually – every time – you will be.
