It’s been a very tough week in the U.S. Most everyone here has been praying for, thinking about, or consoling the people of Boston as we have witnessed yet another senseless and uncommon terror attack. Some of the very customers of DASCOM Americas had family running in the Boston Marathon and were present near the finish line, even as the attacks were taking place. Fortunately, they were blessed to have not suffered any physical harm. Still, we know that just being there has an impact, and effect that is not, and should not be, easily forgotten. And while the memory of this is hard, if we forget, then we become less vigilant in our efforts to make the world better by being just a little better ourselves as we grow in deep appreciation of what we truly have in our usually comfortable lives.
Other of DASCOM’s colleagues and customers in Venezuela also had a tumultuous week with the election of a new leader, and the subsequent social and political unrest that has followed.
Any words that we could, or would write, in this blog, about the event in Boston or even for our friends in Venezuela would ring hollow. So the folks at DASCOM wanted me to just say that they will continue to pray for, and think about the people personally affected by the terrible tragedy in Boston and the unrest in Venezuela. They also believe, just as I do, that one lesson learned each and every day is that there is hope, the ability to make things better, and really only one choice; never give up.
DASCOM Americas will soon be releasing some new serial matrix printers in the Americas’ market. This writer has already blogged about many of the great features of those printers and why the folks at DASCOM believe they will be very successful. They will offer great features that are normally found on more expensive units. There will be features that make the units some of the most versatile in the DASCOM product portfolio. And, there will be an underlying message with the release of the printers; that is, DASCOM will NEVER give up on printing. They remain firmly focused on offering new products while most manufacturers are limiting their printer choices and scaling back. And while it would be silly to compare terrible tragedy to new product introduction, the underlying core theme of people involved is the same. That is, there is a commitment to one another. There is a responsibility to hold each other accountable. There is a responsibility to conduct business and personal life with high integrity. Just like with anything in life, one must be resilient to be his or her best. There must be people willing to live their lives and conduct business at a high standard. This is how we make things better, even if just a little at a time.
As you consider using or purchasing the new DASCOM products, I’m sure that DASCOM would want me to thank you for your patronage. They would likely also ask me to tell you to also pray or offer a thought about others who have turmoil and terror in their lives.
They’d also want me to tell you…never give up.
