On a more serious note...

Today began as any other day off would... early morning run, then breakfast with my mom, sister, and nephews. My day changed drastically, however, when I listened to an unopened voicemail from 11pm the previous night. The message was to tell me that a good friend of mine had been in a serious car accident and was currently in ICU at Grady Hospital (a well-known trauma center for you non-Atlantans.) 

It is now the end of the day, and I am writing to remind all of you to take a look at your lives and the people in them that really matter. I had seen Harrison three days ago, and how he's laying in a hospital bed with a broken pelvic bone, broken ribs, and internal damage. (Don't fret. Everything is okay now.. just some intense physical therapy in the immediate future.) I know it sounds so cliche, but we never know how much time we have left, so make the most of what you have. Take a minute today to hug the ones you love and remind them just how much they mean to you.
