A bit too real

I came across this clip produced by the U.S. War Department in 1947, and thought it sounded frighteningly familiar given recent events. What’s that old admonition about those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it?

Be kind

We’re thinking about our friend Bob Perske tonight; it was a year ago today he passed away at 88. Here’s who he was, a mentor to so many, and a buddy to our son Jim. When it all comes down to it, his message was simple and never more important than it is today: be kind. It lifts our hearts when we see his message pop up in random places, like this one in Half Moon Bay, California.

Here’s to you, Bob. We miss you.
