This sad news has left me a bit numb.  I never had the opportunity to meet Oscar so maybe the sadness is yet another reminder, that we aren't invincible.  Over the past year, it seems my life has been filled crossroads at every corner.  Each event propelling me ahead, yet I face the struggle sometimes of which direction to go.  Today I will take a deep breath, be grateful for everything I do have and let these words echo in my ear... "be the designer of your own destiny."

Oscar, may your smile forever shine on.
