I could lift you up
I could show you what you wanna see
And take you where you wanna be
You could be my luck
Even if the sky is falling down
I know that we’ll be safe and sound

We’re safe sound!

I could fill your cup
You know my river won’t evaporate
This world we still appreciate
You could be my luck
Even in a hurricane of frowns
I know that we’ll be safe and sound

Safe and sound…
We’re safe and sound!
Safe and sound…
We’re safe and sound!
Hold your ground…
We’re safe and sound!
Safe and sound…

Just 2 days until race day…

For this note, I’m highlighting Elizabeth’s ToughKids Race song called, “Safe and Sound.” Elizabeth never seems too worried about individual race results or awards. Sure, she keeps track of how she is doing to measure progress, but her main focus is always about how the group is doing. Elizabeth’s instincts usually lead her to observe a situation, then quietly fill a need where she sees it.

For this race, Elizabeth’s primary focus is to keep an eye on her sister when they are in the water together during the swim. There is nothing more important to her than ensuring her sister is “safe and sound” while conquering her fear. Then afterward, both will be together, encouraging each other to get to the finish line.

Elizabeth’s big lesson: Kindness, compassion, and the skills to do many things are a rare combination. By trusting your instincts and working to become well rounded, you can increase your ability to help others and lead.

Congratulations, Elizabeth! It is clear that you have already begun your “Hero’s Journey.”

Freedom's Light Family of Charities

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury. At Fisher House, no family pays to stay at their facilities. Why? Because a family's love is good medicine…

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are serving in far-off places defending the liberties we hold so dear - away from their families, friends, and the comforts of home.  In 2003, the USO discovered the changing needs of those thousands of deploying troops.  Understanding the impact that the little things can have and difference they can make, the USO launched Operation USO Care Package providing comforts of home in the form of a care package.  For as little as $25.00 you can send a care package letting a service member know that you care.
