On April 29th of this year, I received a call from an old Army friend of mine that no one was expecting. He called and told us that Weston Lee had been hit by an IED and passed away the night before.
In our nation’s 241 year history there have only been 20 total eclipse occurrences. While total eclipses are somewhat of a rarity, what’s even more rare is the fact that it could be seen from coast to coast in the US.
With a rough estimate of between 3 million and 4 million americans taking part in the festivities, it was dubbed “The Great American Eclipse”. In my quarter century of being alive, I can honestly say it was a unique experience to watch millions Americans put their differences aside and enjoy the beautiful world that we live in.
People took work off all around the country to travel and get the best experience possible. Granted, the eclipse was far more beautiful in some areas than in others. I wasn’t blown away by the eclipse itself, but the reaction and the experience as a whole.
While I’m sure that there are many managers and owners who would have been much happier if their employees had remained at work and been productive, the effect on work morale will surely outweigh the few hours missing from the timesheets. At least I know ours was.
My final thoughts: Whether you thought the eclipse was stupid, amazing or underwhelming, you must have found some solitude in seeing the country focus on something much larger than politics and social issues.
