Sitting at the ROI Summit in Jerusalem for my seventh time, listening to Lynn Schusterman tell us how much she appreciates the work we all do and hearing from LIVESTRONG CEO Doug Ulman about how he transformed three different cancer diagnoses into activism, I realize how lucky I am.
Not just to be healthy (so far, she said, throwing some salt over her shoulder just to be sure), but to have a network of people to rely on, an ongoing conversation with friends and colleagues (frolleagues?) around the world. Not just to be in the room, but to have a network of friends outside the room who choose to spend their time linking into us electronically, joining us from across oceans and time zones. And I'm lucky to live in a time when the technology permits more connections and provides the opportunity to deepen our relationships.
