In light of today's shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, I'd like to take a minute to remind everyone to cherish your time with your family and friends, hug your children close, and never miss a chance to let your loved ones know what they mean to you.
The gun control debates will start soon, but the real issue here is mental illness. If you, or someone you know, need help, please don't be afraid to ask. If you know someone is a danger to themselves or others, you need to intervene and tell someone who can help.
Please, be kind to yourselves and those around you. Keep these families in your thoughts. Appreciate today, because you may not have tomorrow.
