Why I Gave Money To Triangle Cares For Sandy Hook

Money is a poor proxy for love or support, but it creates a meaningful exchange. Some love and support even via a poor proxy is better than none. When the monster of senseless chaos visits we use money as a proxy exchange.

We give money to:

  • Share our hearts.
  • Reestablish meaning and order in the face of meaningless chaos.
  • Make a statement, a vote really, for GOOD over EVIL.
  • Because we can.
  • Because giving changes US.

Because Giving Changes Us

I spent yesterday signing my life savings into the Elizabeth Martin and Duncan Smith Story of Cancer Trust. I could be bitter about saving for a “retirement” that thanks to having leukemia is unlikely, or I can give money as a proxy for love.  I help others and in so doing help myself.

Time is much too valuable to spend being bitter. I’m an Internet marketer. The web only has one direction, forward and one speed, faster. Turns out that is a good way to live one’s life.

I am not Eckart Tolle. I always write braver and more generous than I am (lol), but I give because it helps create connection and find meaning even when there is no “meaning” and we will never be able to understand.

Triangle Cares is the pure essence of the give. 100% of money raised is headed to ease, to whatever tiny degree, the void chaos created in Sandy Hook. We know “the monster”. The monster has many names such as cancer, hurricanes and random acts of violence. Sometimes the monster touches us.

In the moment when things we fear come to steal our life, love and belief, there is only one way to survive – with kindness and love from friends and family. Even if we never meet or know those who support and love us when the monster comes we know we are not alone. I gave money, a poor proxy for love, to Triangle Cares for Sandy Hook because giving allowed me to touch the face of God.

Questions & Answers

Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
Learn More
How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.
Learn More
Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
