It's February 22, 2022. or otherwise written as 2/22/22 - this is what's known as a palindrome - meaning it reads the same forward as it does backward. It also falls on a Tuesday, which is now referred to as #Twosday - how will you remember 2.22.22 at 2.22 pm?
Today is the most exceptional date in over a decade. It's a ubiquitous palindrome date because it's a palindrome whether written in the U.S. format (month, day, year) or international date format more widely used (day, month, and year). The last time there was a ubiquitous six-digit palindrome date was November 11, 2011.
For me, this is a momentous week, no less so than it's my 20th Wedding Anniversary, China is apparently the traditional gift, Platinum, modern, an Emerald, or a white Daylily.
I am also extremely proud of the progress we're making at 4xi - expanding our team, our capabilities, capacity as we continue our growth journey and evolution.
But it's the events in #Ukraine that I will remember this day/week the most.
Although I wasn't around in 1939, the rhetoric from Moscow and the progress of events in recent days have been alarming, to say the least.
My thoughts go out to all those in Ukraine, and all the soldiers and servicemen and women on both sides of the political fence, and hope that sensibility and peace ultimately prevail. My prayers go to the world leaders to make the right, probably tough decisions to ensure global safety and stability for all. I wish for #Peace and #IBackUkraine
