It is no secret that I love Sheryl Sandberg. Lean In inspired me a lot in my professional life. But this is something to inspire us all in our personal lives too. I love her even more after this.
I think when tragedy occurs, it presents a choice. You can give in to the void, the emptiness that fills your heart, your lungs, constricts your ability to think or even breathe. Or you can try to find meaning. These past 30 days, I have spent many of my moments lost in that void. And I know that many future moments will be consumed by the vast emptiness as well. But when I can, I want to choose life and meaning.
