From my window I can see snow, so that’s my excuse for posting this so late -it’s lame, I know. This was the message that I shared with my team right before Christmas…and I hope it carries some weight all year long:
This is the week before Christmas, and no matter what or how you celebrate the holidays it seems an appropriate time to pass along this sentiment:
Please let us remember those without a loving family with which to celebrate, amidst our mad rush to please the ones we love. Let us remember those that long for that kind of love and security, and let us try to help those that would otherwise go without.
The success of a society (as it is with each of us individually) will be judged by how we treat the least fortunate in our community- our philanthropy, our caring, our giving, our humility, our modesty, our compassion, and the accuracy of our moral compass will all define our success as human beings. While I hope we consider this every day- let us allow this season to guide us with even more purpose in that direction, while we ALSO show love to our own families.
Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and/or Season’s Greetings to each and every one of you and your families. My wish for you is to enjoy every moment with everyone you love…
Ian Aubourg, Regional Director
