With the death of Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna today; the question presented to us all is, “What would you do today, if you knew there was no tomorrow?" What project would you end, or start? Is there a relationship that you would cultivate? Is there a goal you would to work harder towards? What conversation would you make sure you had? To whom would you say, "you're important"?
While in the grand scheme of things, the work that we do pales greatly in comparison to the loss of life; we do have power and influence over the lives so many amazing human beings that we support in our work as community school coordinators. I hope we all receive this tragedy as a call to action to make the time we have with families, friends, and our community as impactful as we possibly can.
Make everyday count, we don't know if it's our (or their) last.
