As we mark the passage of time by welcoming yet another year, it is important to remember that life is meant to be lived as long we're breathing. The new Adidas commercial going viral is poignant for many reasons. First, it was directed by a student showing us all that brilliance and creativity sometimes rests in the young. And, second, the protagonist is a senior who feels his spirit slipping through his fingers until his former love of running is fueled by a pair of old running shoes. The lesson is this: never let your circumstance, to the extent you have control, limit your potential. Resolve in this brand new year to live life to the fullest regardless of age. Do everything in your power to live Life Out Loud in 2017. The Lowcountry is a wonderful place to be this time of year as we welcome sunsine and mild temps to our region. Wishing everyone peace, love and prosperity. And may we all discover the best is yet to come. Happy New Year, everyone!
