It is hard to imagine the hardships people endured, from hurricanes, earthquakes, wildfires, and horrific tragedies, to the sacrifices and heartache on the battlefield by servicemen and women across the globe. As I hear of their strength in overcoming obstacles, I often wonder would I be as strong? In conversations with family, friends, and new acquaintances, I find it interesting that each one of us in some way has been affected or knows of someone who has been touched by these events, illustrating the proverbial 6 Degrees of Separation. Even though the world is so large, we are all connected. Despite the upheaval, humanity prevails and we see strangers helping others in need. We see people from all walks of life coming together for a cause, out of respect for each other. I am thankful for the generosity and spirit of others and truly appreciate the blessing that we have while others have endured so much.
I know my FSR team supports what they believe in with quiet empathy and bring out the best in each other. I take this time to pause and ask myself, “what I can I do to help someone else?” Not as a reaction to a tragedy, but rather as a habit. Can I give my time, knowledge, lend an ear or aid? How can I make a palpable difference in others’ lives? This is what inspires me and and why I believe in FSR, its employees, and its mission. As we go into this 4th quarter, please pass on good thoughts, cherish those you love, and continue to give voice to your beliefs.
Live life with empathy and compassion, respect others, and bring humanity into all the things that you do.
