Go Home and Hug Your Family

I mean it.

Go home and hug your family. Wrap your arms around your husband/wife, around your child/children and hug them close to you. Memorize the feel of their skin, the smell, the warmth. Tell them you love them.

This story on CNN just floored me. For just one moment, allow yourself to consider what Jimmie Wallet feels right now.

Between this disaster and the recent tsunami, many people have had loved ones and homes completely swept away in the blink of an eye. With a death toll of 150,000 in Asia alone, can you really keep telling yourself it could never happen to you?

Have you told your family how much they mean to you today? Jimmie Wallet would probably love the chance to tell his.

Go home and hug them. I mean it.
