The spirit and culture of America is often reflected in our ability to show compassion and to help each other during moments of great need. During tragedy, we often look to a dozen or so public figures for leadership. Yet we only have to look at ordinary people to see extraordinary leadership in action.
Leaders pick the phone and ask, “How can I help?”.
Leaders act without thinking, “What’s in it for me?”.
Leaders work to find a solution. They do the work without complaint, and do so with joy, knowing that they are called to serve those they have never met and yet will forever change what happens next for those they help.
Your leadership is essential to the students you serve. It’s incredible, the impact you can have. The kind of impact you have is totally up to you.
Leadership is a choice, not a title. It’s ordinary people doing extraordinary things for others.
Have a great week!
