Another typical evening on Facebook.
Today, a family in California, the world of technology, and the users of all things “Apple”, mourned the loss of one of the greatest innovators of our time, Steve Jobs, co-founder and former CEO of Apple, Inc.
When I read that he had passed away today, it brought tears to my eyes. Even though I’d never met the man, I felt the loss. Steve Jobs was a dreamer, a creator, a visionary, an innovator. He was an inspiration to millions, refusing to look back, but always pressing forward, always striving for perfection, always pushing others to look deep inside, find the best in themselves, and bring that best out, into their everyday lives.
There was no one quite like Steve Jobs, as I’m sure his family and fellow techies would attest to. And there never will be.
Steve died of pancreatic cancer, having lived longer than almost anyone who has suffered from this type of cancer. He certainly was a fighter.
And now he is free of pain, free to rest in peace.
He will be missed.
It is just incredible to me that anyone in this “wealthy” nation should go hungry. ANYONE. Did you know that in the state of Ohio, 20% of our senior citizens reported not having enough money to purchase food every day last year? Meaning that they had to either go without, or purchase low quality food. In my home state of Florida, it is 21%. UNacceptable.
AARP and NASCAR have joined to help fight hunger for our senior citizens. Please click on the logo below, and donate. A $25 donation will purchase a weeks worth of healthy food for one senior citizen.
I donated. Will you?
I came across this on Twitter.
