R U OK? Four letters as a question conveyed a lot today.
Prosek Partners, the company I work for, has an office in the Empire State Building. It was outside our building this morning that a man gunned down a former colleague and soon died in a cop shoot out that injured almost a dozen of innocent bystanders. All of this occurred outside our office building.
Luckily, we’re all fine, and I was actually in a cab on the way to the office when it all happened.
But emails, Tweets, wall postings and texts quickly followed from clients, friends and family from all over the world, many starting with the same four letters as a question.
Social media allowed the news to travel quickly. We all know that happens. But I also learned it allows us express real concern and emotion and provide some peace of mind. Even today.
That’s M2C (or my two cents). Were you involved in today's events, or do you know someone who was? Feel free to share your stories below.
