Click Here to download ERS-2012-08-15 #301 Shorter show today in light of the content and it’s nice to be back. Still in shock over what happened a weekend ago, I don’t think I’ll ever be the same. I truly appreciate all the warm comments of support I received after I sent last weeks email out and it was touched that they came from all over the world. I’ll share more about it on today’s show. They truly helped me get through the week. The entire situation was a gentle reminder that life is fragile and that in some small way we’re here to make the world a better place, one day at a time.
