This past Sunday we honored our veterans and the significance of Memorial Day.
I was so proud of the experience our entire team put together because it wasn’t just a sentimental journey. It caused us to think about Memorial day in a different way. It’s all about sacrifice. And Sacrifice is part of living if you’re going to live life fully.
Our challenge this week is to continue to show gratitude to the military. I heard from a guy who himself served in the military and he said he had forgotten to be thankful and honor those who have served including his own grandfather.
Now that’s impact!
I’d be remiss if I didn’t address our guest speaker: Shea Prisk. And yes we share a last name…
I don’t often talk about my family members, but yes Shea is my second oldest son.
I’ll be honest, I had a lot of mixed emotions about it.
Is he ready? He is.
Would I give him feedback properly? I gave him probably more criticism than anyone who has spoken at The River and he rose to the occasion.
Would it be strange to people at The River to see my son speak. I heard a lot of great feedback about his energy and perspective. He was vulnerable, transparent and brought a different point of view to Memorial Day.
If we all act with vulnerability and transparency, we’ll have a different perspective to EVERY day.
Well done Shea, well done.
