Update from Tierra’s CEO, Rebecca Lienhard, Friday, May 1, 2020
A Tierra staff member recently shared the following with me,
“Think about those people who energize you, those you can rely on. Reach out to them. Bask in their positivity, and let them bask in yours. We may all be in this together, but you can still make some choices about how to interact more with people who build you up. Because finding ways to build yourself up is what resilience is all about.”
The faces in the image above tell the story of our Vision – regardless of the notion of disability, ALL PEOPLE live productive and personally meaningful lives. These are the faces of those who have come together and have focused on building each other up during unprecedented times. Notice in the image above, there is no line drawn between those we serve and those who serve? Are you able to see that clearly in the picture above too? This is the depiction of resilience. We are one body of people working in partnership to create lives of value and acceptance through our contributions to the world.
For over 30 years, this has been my passion to see a world where this is true in every corner of our universe. The picture above gives me hope that we are on the right track! Thank you, for believing as I do, that together we can do anything.
Enjoy your day, your weekend, and always remember to:
