There are some people that do their jobs with such ease, it seems as if they are as vital a part of their operations as the building and the machines. They seem indispensible. Such a person is AKILAH MONIFA, who has been the Director of Communications and Public Affairs for CBS in the San Francisco Bay Area. Akilah has been the whirling dervish of the City By The Bay…described by one of her co-workers as ‘the most energetic person I’ve ever known and she knows EVERYbody’. That she does. But even the most ideal pairing has a life span…a new adventure calls and we choose a new path to trod. Akilah is going to take some time off and travel before getting new business cards. In the meantime, she’ll be sorely missed but will continue to write for the Huffington Post and The Progressive Media Project. Everything she does is Well Dunne!
There’s so few words that seem right when someone loses their father. No matter what, losing Your Dad leaves one swamped with emotions, memories and taking care of everyone else first, which is what most Dad’s did for us. When news of a loss is shared, there needs to be a better way to express that you feel the loss as well, even if you never met the person who has transitioned. Sincere condolences go to PETER CARLSON and LINDSAY BLEDSOE on the recent loss of their fathers.
Think About This: “When I think of death, and of late the idea has come with alarming frequency, I seem at peace with the idea that a day will dawn when I will no longer be among those living in this valley of strange humors. I can accept the idea of my own demise, but I am unable to accept the death of anyone else. I find it impossible to let a friend or relative go into that country of no return. Disbelief becomes my constant companion, and anger follows in its wake. I answer the heroic question ‘ Death where is they sting?’ with “it is here in my heart and mind and memories.’ ~ Maya Angelou
