The Leader In Me…

On this Veteran’s Day my thoughts turn to those who have served and are serving in the military so that all of us might enjoy our individual rights and freedoms as citizens of the United States of America. I am grateful and humbled by the men and women who exemplify daily what it is to be a true “leader.” I came across this video this morning and it reminded me of a poem I wrote a few years ago ab…out being a leader. Sometimes it’s the simple actions…the sweet voices of children that echo a simple message the loudest…

The Leader In Me…
Everyone can be a leader in his or her own way
By helping others do their best through what we do or say.
It doesn’t really matter just how we look or talk
Or if we’re in a wheelchair, or if others help us walk.
Just by simply being here we help those around us see
That by gladly serving others we can find the leader in me.
—from Of Roots, Shoes and Rhymes by C L Gillmore
