This blog will have nothing to do with Supply Chain etc.
Today’s post is by Mark Davis; Sr. Vice President of Operations and CTO at SafeSourcing and this post has nothing to do with Supply Chain, procurement, sourcing or really business of any kind. However, please Enjoy and reflect!
As we head into what will undoubtedly be a week of joy and celebration for peoples all over the world it causes me to pause and to think about the lives of the people, not only in Connecticut, but everywhere; whose lives have been turned upside down by events that were completely beyond their control.
2012 has been an especially challenging year as regards a variety of tragedies yet it seems that no matter where you lived, that tragedy didn’t miss leaving its mark on you in some way or another.
I’d like to use this post to encourage each and every one of you to take some time, give hugs and appreciate the lives of the people who are still with us, and remember and reflect upon those who are not.
I will be honest in that this time of year has always been a special one for me and I have never usually had a problem getting into the Holiday spirit. This year has been a struggle to stay positive in the midst of all the chaos; I honestly believe that I am not alone in this feeling. However, I am also aware that with struggle comes the potential for hope and with hope comes change and change can lead to a view of the world that isn’t quite so dark as the one many of us face at this moment in time.
And so I cling to hope that in the midst of struggle and I encourage you and your family to do the same as we embrace this Holiday Season for what it truly represents.
We continue to wish you the Happiest of Holidays and a Bright and Hopeful New Year!
