With a very heavy heart, I’m asking for all my friends’ help.
My cousin, Nina, only has TWO months to find a bone marrow donor. Here’s the site to learn more: http://www.savenina.com/
Basically, I’m asking you all to register and ask your friends to register. Not many Asian Pacific Islander (and other minorities) are in this database - the more people that sign up, the more likely Nina and anyone suffering from blood cancers can have a life-saving transplant.
How well this attack succeeds depends much less on what happened in Boston than by our reactions in the coming weeks and months. Terrorism isn’t primarily a crime against people or property. It’s a crime against our minds, using the deaths of innocents and destruction of property as accomplices. When we react from fear, when we change our laws and policies to make our country less open, the terrorists succeed, even if their attacks fail. But when we refuse to be terrorized, when we’re indomitable in the face of terror, the terrorists fail, even if their attacks succeed.
Someone sent me this video yesterday and I love it. It was made for a school in Australia by two blokes. See, I can speak Australian. Anyway, it was made by Henry and Aaron. Haven’t looked at their other stuff yet but this is delightful.
Hello. My name is Tim Sniffen. I’ve been a Yahoo! junior server administrator for eleven years.
It was with a stab of terror that I read your memo asking “all employees with work-from-home arrangements to work in Yahoo! offices.” I realize we’re in a time of crucial transition, and many people will benefit from more personal contact and unscheduled brainstorming sessions.
