    MUSIC PLAYING] I believe that among the greatest lessons we'll learn in this short sojourn upon the earth are lessons that help us distinguish between what is important and what is not. And what is most important almost always involves the people around us. Often we assume that they must know how much we love them. But we should never assume; we should let them know.

    Wrote William Shakespeare, "They do not love that do not show their love." Despite the changes which come into our lives, may we fill our days--as much as we can--with those things which matter most. May we cherish those we hold dear and express our love to them in word and in deed. Send that note to a friend you've been neglecting; give your child a hug; give your parents a hug; say "I love you" more; always express your thanks. Never let a problem to be solved become more important than a person to be loved.
