Sometimes ya just gotta trust

 Last week we took the Silver Creek Leadership Academy to the CU Challenge Ropes Course at the University of Colorado at Boulder.  It was amazing to see the kids working together, reaching out to help each other and trusting each other.  Too often in this world we think we have to make it on our own, or that we need to put others down to make ourselves feel better.  Wonder why it took hanging from a string 40 feet in the air to feel differently?

Wouldn't it be great if we all took care of each other?  What if I was strong when you were weak?  You were smart when I was dumb?  And we all just managed to cut each other some slack and treat each other with love and respect? 

I look forward to when we just reach out our hands to help each other. I don't care if you are my best friend, or someone I hardly know.  If you need help- I want to be that person.  

And when life seems unstable- or I am a little unsure of myself- you will be there for me. 

Because we all make a difference
