Every Friday, I’ll post thought provoking discussion starters

My assistant, Linda, and I arrived in Galveston, TX, yesterday because I’m speaking and we’re exhibiting here at the Texas State Middle School Association Convention. As we arrived, it was great turning left at the sea wall and driving along the gulf. We have a beautiful view of the powerful waves from our 12th floor room (the picture for this post is the view from our room.)

It made me think of this statement.

If I were dropped out of a plane into the ocean and told the nearest land was a thousand miles away, I’d still swim. And I’d despise the one who gave up. ~Abraham Maslow

What do you think? Which person would you be? Why? What could we say to the one wanting to give up?
