Love Life

In Tom Shadyac’s class this week, a video was shown that had everyone in the room shedding a tear. Even grown men. (Yes, go grab a tissue now. But, come back. Please, don’t use it as an excuse to go.) As much as I would prefer not to make you cry, this video will open up your heart to make sure that you remember to love your life. And that is a lesson that everyone should learn and be reminded of all the time, including myself.

The video is about a man named Steve Fugate.

“In 1999, Stevie Fugate Jr. took his own life. His death was unexpected and devastating to his family. But rather than give in to despair, Stevie‚Äôs father chose to channel his grief into action.

Over the past ten years Steve Fugate Sr. has walked almost 25,000 miles, and did it all with a sign over his head saying, simply, “Love Life.” His mission is to teach his love for life to every person he meets.”

Let’s agree to be in love with our lives. Every minute of them.
