Take it personally

This post has been on the back of my mind for more than a week now and I did not realize why really until yesterday:

The Body Shop was acquired last year by L’Oreal, for $1.14 billion.

Roddick died unexpectedly of a brain hemmorhage yesterday. She was 64.

I don’t know about you but the juxtaposition of the two sentences blew my brains out made me pause. I never think about death (mainly because I am a super hero!) Sometimes death thinks about you in strange and unexpected ways and you have to deal. Anita Roddick paved the way to social and environmental responsibility in a business. Way ahead of her time.
