It’s a good time to share a few positive messages in this era of mass shootings, racial tension, people burning homeless folks in San Diego, and the recent loss of my sweet father Pete. Somehow even with all that going on, my strength and joy of life are intact. My dad taught his four kids and others blessed to be in his life about unconditional love and happiness. I am lucky to be surrounded by many great people. It seems important to focus on loving relationships and the good in the world to prevent being overwhelmed by the horrors around us.
