In less than a decade there will be 8 Billion people in the World. We're currently at 7.4 at the time of this writing, but that number is literally changing by the second. This means that We, like the rest of you, are each one in 7.4 Billion. That should scare us. It would have a couple of years ago, or a few months ago, or even a few moments ago, but right now, at this very moment, I have a large smile on my face because We are each one in 7.4 Billion, and We're each still unique. We don't know a single person exactly like each of us and if we did, we'd risk being called delusional (nothing new) because the possibility of us being us is one in 400 Quadrillion. Last we checked, that's much higher than 7.4 Billion. Trust us, we're a team of an Engineer, a Coffee Specialist, a Career Development Director, a Doctor in training, a Dean of Undergraduate Studies, and a revolutionary accessibility specialist. We know how to use Google. 

We are no more special than anyone else, but We are each special, as are you. Welcome to our Family!
