Many Thanks,


Remember . . .

We can “all” be “Everyday Heroes”

by sincerely seeking out those who need a

caring hand of help in our families,

neighborhoods and broader

communities; the areas

wherein we interact on a

daily basis. As there certainly is


a profound difference of improvement can

result if heroic acts of genuine helpfulness

are a central focus of the responsible work

of local officials.  Local support is a

welcoming and indispensable

catalyst toward a better

world for allAs we

continue to progress

through the portals of

the 21st Century and

this New Millennium, let’s

keep in mind that it’s really up

to “everyday people” working together

to bring forth that sure and promising future for

children – who are the future – already with us today.
