Today, I learned just how much a pretty smile can hide incredible pain. I learned that when you look at someone you never know exactly what’s going on in their life or what they’re going through. I learned this after one of my top employees – a woman with the most intelligent, positive personality imaginable… who always smiles and helps others smile too – took her own life.

Today, for the first time in over a year, I spent the whole day with my brother, Shawn, who has been in and out of rehab for drug abuse and depression for the better part of the past five years. He seemed like a changed man today - laughing and sharing honest, heartfelt stories about his recovery and outlook on the future. It was truly the happiest I can remember him ever being. Shawn died in a car accident this evening on his drive home from my house. MMT
