Together We Thrive!

For those of us in the THRIVER ZONE, did you notice that “Together We Thrive!” was the title of the Wednesday, January 12 Memorial Service in Tucson Arizona to memorialize the victims and survivors of the terrible tragedy last Saturday January 8?

I think that our VICTIM to SURVIVOR to THRIVER theme is catching on!!!

President Barack Obama’s speech was very inspiring, speaking of all those who were killed that day in Arizona and those who survived and are bravely fighting to once again thrive!

Here’s one quote from the speech that I really liked:

“We recognize our own mortality, and we are reminded that in the fleeting time we have on this Earth, what matters is not wealth, or status, or power, or fame -– but rather, how well we have loved -- and what small part we have played in making the lives of other people better.”

You can view a video of the entire speech.
