I don’t often mix my professional life into the stew that is I Will Dare. But right now I have to make an exception.
The plane Luke Bucklin, President and CEO of The Nerdery, was flying is missing in Wyoming. Luke was flying the plane with three of his sons on board. They were headed home from a family vacation in Jackson Hole. You can read more details at the PiPress or on Luke and his wife Ginger’s blog.
As I mentioned earlier, I have an uneasy relationship with religion. But I have a very strong belief in the power of positive thinking and the energy that can produce.
If you’re the praying type, could you say a prayer for Luke and his family? He’s a very kind, intelligent, and generous man. He’s a strong, guiding force in making The Nerdery one of the awesomest places on Earth. Somehow the company manages to balance the aspects needed to be a strong, successful company with being decent human beings intent on helping people. You need only look at the Overnight Website Challenge to see some of the good Luke & The Nerdery have done.
If you’re the vibe-giving type, send some vibes his way so that he and his sons are back with Ginger and the rest of their family soon.
Oh Jodi, I’m so sorry. I am sending all the prayers I’ve got right now to the Twin Cities and out west.
Yeesh. That’s scary. I’ll be thinking safe and happy thoughts.
It hadn’t dawned on me that you were connected to the dad. Sending positive thoughts. The twins go to SW where I teach. I hadn’t met them, but my students are friends with them– the kids all grew up together. Everyone’s praying and holding out hope.
