Pledging Commitment to Others  

As a child of the 1980s, I am a fan of Ronald Reagan. His humor, quotable quotes, virtue and public speaking ability all resonate with me. As we enter summer, a time of taking Friday's off and spending more time at the lake - something to celebrate - let's take time to ponder commitment to each other. 

Reagan once said, "Together, let us make this a new beginning. Let us make a commitment to care for the needy, to teach our children the values and the virtues handed down to us by our families, to have the courage to defend those values and the willingness to sacrifice for them. Let us pledge to restore, in our time, the American spirit of voluntary service, of cooperation, of private and community initiative, a spirit that flows like a deep and mighty river through the history of our nation." 

As a volunteer for both PRSA and Toastmasters International, I feel it is important to follow through on our commitments, I know that I try to do so. Sometimes things get a little busy and we need to know when to say, "Hold it folks, need a breather here!" At the end of the day, follow-through is about doing what you say you'll do, and communicating with others when you can't do it. 

Being a part of things that help our communities and causes is important. Doing it right is even better! 

Have a wonderful summer and be sure to join us on the Ale Trail for a relaxing afternoon PRSA-style on June 16th!
