It’s time to try to heal as humans, a country, and as a world. It’s time to bring families and friends back together. To rebuild what has been lost. To find a way to work through and advance as a society. It’s time to stop judging and attacking others for their beliefs. It’s time to love and be loved. It’s time to return to everyday kindness and not just kindness to recognize certain groups of people. Every person and every job is essential. Every human and every life is essential. It’s time to think about your Judgement Day as a day when you may be seated across from the person you SHOULD have been to see how you compare with how you lived your life. To see if your reflection in the mirror is also what others see.
Respect is the one of the biggest problems our world has always faced. Lack of respect drives many of the problems that result in conflict, judgement, and hatred. Let’s learn to respect more and judge less. By respecting more and judging less we only stand to improve our world and there are no negatives to doing so. Think about that–how powerful is it that we can change our world by simply making a choice every day to respect and love others rather than by judging? Without emotions, the Earth simple exists. If all of mankind were wiped from Earth today, all emotions go with it. That means the society we live in today is as it exists because we CHOOSE to make it that way.
I finish this year having experienced and witnessed many of the events and emotions I have described. I am not without fault and I suspect most everyone can relate to the past year as I have described. I want to take this opportunity to ask everyone to join me in a commitment to make 2021 such a great year that 2020 is not forgotten, but kept as reminder that everything can change in an instant. Your world, our world, can be changed forever without warning.
I named my little company “484 Brands” because of what 2020 has brought and taught me. Those numbers represent the number of letters in the words Love, Kindness, and Hope and is really a formula spelled out as LOVE + KINDNESS = HOPE. When you combine love and kindness, it shows the world there is hope for all humanity. Be loving and kind to others and the only thing they can realize is there is not only hope for them, but hope for the world. Make every day in 2021 count. That’s all I can ask of everyone. Our world is what we choose for it to be. Choose love, respect, and kindness. If we are going to cancel something, cancel judgement.

Matthew 7:1-2 “Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
