-- depressed today.

So without mentioning where I work, I will just say that I got a notice today that the person who heads my organization is resigning for health reasons. I am stricken. He doesn't know me personally but I greatly admire him. Reading all of his speeches and wise words, I feel like I've gotten a glimpse of a wonderful, wise, kind humanitarian and I know he's not done -- this is just too soon. If you've been following my blog, you know I've been thinking about people fighting illnesses lately. I can't just hear the news and move on, I need to digest it, sit with it in my gut and think about them, imagine what they're going through and try to visualize what I can do.

In his honor, I'm posting a link to learn more about Parkinson's.
