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.
