Everyone is a little different….and has gifts to share….that are needing to be put to use.
Over the last few weeks, I’ve witnessed a small fraction of this great country’s generosity, as community after community distributed turkeys and hams and tractor-trailer loads of foodstuffs (and medical supplies), from Seattle to the Middle-East.
Many if not most of those distributions…..were private donations, including from big and not so big corporations.
Sadly, we seem to have generations coming along who do not understand how such private generosity can be created, and available - when needed.
At my family’s Thanksgiving Meal, where I started dressing the turkey and dressing at 5:30 that morning, we had 14 attendees – over half of whom were not immediate family. (I know of several families where the guests numbered over 35…!)
This note is my public “Thank You” – for the many clients who continue to use our Services, and allow us to make a positive contribution – to their economic journey – of creating prosperity for their organization, their employees….their suppliers….and most certainly…their treasured customers.
We need to remember that this great country and industry were developed by individuals with personal vision…willing to work…sacrifice…and stand accountable for what was being created.
As we have immigrants already here, or wanting to come – for obvious reasons – we need to make sure they have the opportunity to go to work – for themselves and their family….for their dreams of a better life. (They will remind us that our dreams are still alive, and waiting.)
We can not wait for professional politicians to “fix the system”. (They’ve done enough already.)
“I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it.”……………..Pablo Picasso
