South by Midwest: Don't let fear win


South by Midwest: Don't let fear win

05 Oct 2017

It’s easy to want to draw the curtains and block out the world when tragedies like Las Vegas happen (and they happen way too often, though that’s a different column entirely).

But when you let it affect your regularly scheduled life, you’re giving these terrorists the power they seek. I encourage you to get out this weekend and support a local charity, meet your neighbors and just plain have some fun enjoying our community.

Honor those beautiful lives lost by living yours to the fullest.
