Something You Might Have Missed
Through a unique Mid-South program that may help to save lives, U of M faculty, alumni and students make a splash in the community. Here is their story, Pools of Courage.

Closing Thoughts
I applaud all of you for the inspiration and instruction that you provide for those around you. Recently, I watched two interviews Oprah has done, one with J. K. Rowling and the other with Jay Z. I found both of them very moving and thought-provoking. So while I urge you to continue inspiring others, don’t forget about yourself, make sure you’re drawing some energy from some place too.
