Tragedy in Tucson

by Deborah on January 12, 2011

As a relatively new resident in Tucson – I’ve only been here 10 years, I feel as if the recent event went to the heart of who I am and what I believe in.  Not unlike the tragedy of 911 which took place two months before I moved out West, geography does make a difference. But now, as then, my heart goes out to those who were victims and I am forced to look at my life, my choices and that always means my lifework.

Living a life of purpose, being committed in my career to serving others, is really the only thing I know I can do that might possibly make a difference.  For all those who share in this tragedy, may you find your meaningful work, with purpose, and caring. And for those of you who have found it, be grateful.  I know I am.

Thank you for posting something about the recent events in Tucson. It has been a challenge to get online and see business postings that seem so trivial in the shadow of this tragedy. I know that many people outside of Tucson may not be as affected as those of us who have lived there.
And so, out of every ‘bad’ must come some ‘good’. Reevaluating our work and contemplating whether or not we have meaningful work is a good thing. I am sure that many have taken the opportunity to pause and consider life at this time.
Thank you Deborah,
