Thank you, Steve Jobs

A true visionary has passed.

I was sad when my father informed me that Steve Jobs had passed away yesterday evening, October 5th, 2011. It’s always upsetting to hear when an icon dies, but for some reason I was stunned when I heard the news of his passing.

I don’t know if it’s because I’m a loyal Apple user, or because I’ve grown up in the iGeneration, or even because I was so moved by his Stanford Commencement speech — all I know is the world lost a true innovative genius.

Do you remember your first Apple product? I do. I remember for Christmas one year both my brother and I received graphite iMacs. I remember thinking I was so cool because of it. Jessica remembers getting a second generation iPod. I loved that second generation, blue screened brick. Fast forward six years and my life functions easily because of Apple products.

So, as we text on our iPhones, type away on our Mac Books, or even play Angry Birds on our iPads today, take a moment and realize how much he changed our lifestyle.

Thank you, Steve Jobs. Rest in peace.

Keep craving what you love —
