Next time you are out walking or driving, notice the number of people looking down at their cell phones while walking aimlessly forward.

No April Fool

Although we joke about April 1st being April Fool’s Day and use the time to poke fun at and with our friends and colleagues, it is really important that we stay true to appreciating and understanding the impact our pranks can have on those around us. We don’t always know what else is going on in someone else’s life, and our unintentional actions can cause pain under the surface.
