In case you didn’t know, I was in Vegas that fateful weekend and was as physically close as I have ever been to a world tragedy, in fact, I walked by where people were running to just 30 minutes prior.
Along with silent thoughts and prayer, I share some public ones below if you are interested.
Beyond what I say in the video, my encouragement is to stop (or at least lessen) the amount of time watching and re-watching the horrific scenes of the event, and/or the news in general.
You know what happened. Now focus on what you can do better as a result.
To me, it’s a four-letter word. LOVE.
