Close to a Month

It has been close to a month since my last post and it is not for a lack of experiences. The saddest, hardest week of my extended families intertwined lives happened the week before Thanksgiving. A talented, beautiful, shining star was extinguished on a Brooklyn Street.

My cousin Emily was 24 years young, a graduate of Williams College, she was just getting settled in the big city after a tour of the world. Then she stepped into the street and was hit by a car.

We are a large, devoted family that had not experienced tragedy until now. It was a tough week that will remain with me forever. The importance of taking each day and making the most of it has never been more evident to me. It has also reminded me to let my siblings know that I love them every chance I get, even when I don't like them that much.

Life is fragile, please try not to take it for granted.
