It's a bit dark in the world outside these days, folks. I won't wax on philosophically about discrimination and whatnot -- I do try to keep politics out of this space as much as is humanly possible, though sometimes I'll take the necessary jab (I am 'human,' after all); but when you watch television and see folks looting, rioting, and hurting, I think it becomes incumbent upon each of us to be better stewards of those around us, not necessarily the world-at-large. Do what you can -- control the controllable -- and make a difference to those nearest you when you can. As it's been said millions of times before I'm typing this: "You only get one life."
And that's why I thought it appropriate to share this incredible act of kindness from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Michael Ironside: it's inspiring, and it shows how two men came together for a brief time and truly impacted one another's existence. Profound.
As always, thanks for reading, live long and prosper ... and get your @ss to Mars!
