Starting the Day with the NYT

Tuesday, January 12th, 2016

One of the key elements of my morning routine to begin each day in the most positive and focused way is reading the New York Times on my iPad over breakfast. Today’s edition featured the story of a beneficiary of the NYT’s Neediest Cases Fund. The Fund provides direct assistance to New Yorkers who are struggling. This particular article presented the story of a lady from the Dominican Republic who sustained a terrible loss when American Airlines flight 587 crashed in Queens shortly after takeoff. Her incredible work ethic to learn English, pursue an education and support her children is inspiring. It is a reminder of how the poor are the most vulnerable to disasters and why the work we do is so important. It is also a reminder of the importance of supporting the Neediest Cases Fund. Read the article if you want to lift your spirits today.
