It’s all fun and games, until somebody gets hurt.  I say this to my children all the time, and I also say this at work all the time.  I think it accurately captures our responsibility to be intentional about supporting each other, and making sure that our actions and the actions of those around us do not harm others.


I LOVE to laugh.  I also enjoy finding joy in small and simple things, and I believe in humanity and that we are seeing the world change even as we live in it every day. It’s amazing!
