As we endure the high winds and perhaps the loss of electricity this week, we are still grateful for what we have and who we meet along the way.

Today, I am most grateful to have met seven more of Escondido's RISING STARS. The high school seniors whom we honored today came from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. All of which have made them incredible vessels of encouragement, humility and kindness. The word that best describes today's honorees is CHANGE. 

These are young men and women who have overcome life changing events. Students like Cody and Hung, who moved halfway around the world to be enveloped by a new language and culture. Or Wendy and Jairo who are quiet and unassuming, yet are a strong voice for others. Or Jose and Ricardo, who found their strength by caring for others as the men in the family. And Lauren, who is a remarkably vibrant woman with a contagious smile, in spite of the many setbacks in her life. Each of these students could have easily been lost in the eye of the storm of life. Instead, they have embraced their past and are determined to make a new future for themselves and those who are part of their journey. 

"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination."  Jimmy Dean

It's Almost Time to Shop Small
Small Business Saturday November 24th

In an effort to support local shops that make
our communities strong,  Small Business Saturday  takes place on the  Saturday after Thanksgiving to encourage  people to  Shop Small  and bring more holiday  shopping to small, local businesses. We all know there are a lot of wonderful, eclectic, unique mom-and-pop stores in Escondido, so get ready to show your support.

Since its inception in 2010, Small Business Saturday has grown into a national celebration and a community building movement. An estimated $85 billion has been spent, and over 90% of consumers say it has made a positive impact on their community!
