friday wisdom :: rest in peace, mr. nowak

i was lucky enough to have been given a wonderful mentor, guide, and teacher in high school by the name of jim nowak.

he taught me so many things... the importance of our words, our deeds, our outlook on the world. how money is worth far less than relationships and self-worth, and that different is good... "there is no weird."

mr. nowak died in a car crash in kenya last week while in the midst of his organization's work building schools and medical facilities (find out more at the building futures website).

he inspired me and just about every person he met. and he will be greatly missed.
