Relfections on family

Last night my last Grandparent, Mary Nell Rogers, passed away peacefully with her family all around. She went much in the same way that her husband, my grandfather, chose to leave us. Now they will finally be back together.

As I traveled today to be with my family, I was left with the inescapable feeling that life is too short to waste time along the way. My grandmother was married at age 17 and had her first child when she was 19 years old. 75 years later she finally decided it was time to move on, but not before she had made a difference in thousands of people's lives. I don't know that there was a time in her life where she vacillated or double-backed, she just moved full speed ahead in all that she did.

I feel this same way about our pursuit of a new way to sell cars. With General Motors trading at its lowest stock price in 50 years, these are uncertain times in US auto, but we are certain about one thing: that customers want game changing, stylish, efficient cars that meet their needs. We are going to bring these cars to them, no vacillating, no doubling back, just full speed ahead so that we can look back in 75 years and know that we gave it our all and made a difference.

Go Local!
