Fatal car crash gives personal lesson in perspective
The news of the death of our dear friend Marie's sister near Lincoln, CA [Map Link] in a tragic Thanksgiving Day car crash [Link to family blog post] really puts all of this in perspective. We are mortal and vulnerable [Link to news report summary.] What we do as union activists, in my opinion, has value to the extent that it enriches and improves the lives of people. We only have a limited number of days and if our efforts do not somehow improve those days, what value is there to our efforts?
