I don’t make a habit of linking to my SI.com columns here. But today’s means something extra to me.
It’s not my place to say, but let’s all take some time today to not merely think of those lost, but to appreciate life. To really, really appreciate and embrace it; to grasp the fragility and understand howâ€”click!â€”it can come and go. I, for one, am thankful for my amazingly supportive wife, Catherine, my beautiful children, Casey and Emmett, my brother, David, my unparalleled parents, my in-laws, my uncle, my cousin, my sisters-in-law, my nephews. Sometimes I’m amazed how many good people have allowed me to take part in their worlds.
Sorry to babble. Always a hard day for me to grasp.
