EDGEtv is taking a moment of silence for the victims of the Las Vegas shooting. While humanity searches for motives and meanings, we hope to somehow inspire what Abraham Lincoln called, “The Better Angels of Our Nature.” As we collectively walk the slackline that is the 7 Stages of Grief, we look towards hope; hope that we can find ways to live with each other without violence and hatred, hope that the victims and their families will forever remind us that life is precious and beautiful and never to be taken for granted.

In this issue, we offer only photographs and quotes that are life-affirming. And we offer this advice: Get outside, inhale deeply of that sweet autumn air, climb a peak, and reflect on the meaning of life.
