Why, you ask, do I write this status? One day it will show up in my memory feed, and it will be a yearly reminder that life is precious and not to take the things we dearly love for granted.We have so much! Be thankful. Be grateful. Be kind to each other – love one another – support everyone.

We are all one!

We can all do this. Stay safe everyone!
