"Effective Speaking"

July 4th has always been a day of celebration for my family. It is the day that my older brother Rolland was born. So, not only did we celebrate the birth of our nation, but also the birth of my older brother. There are many ways to express our patriotism as is illustrated in a book that the members of the Leads Group gave to me some years ago titled Pa*tri*ot*isms, by Carole Marsh;

  • Patriotism is everyday citizenship.
  • Patriotism is not what you say, it's what you do.
  • Patriotism is respect for all people.
  • Patriotism is not a daydream; it's the dream of a day when all people are free.
  • Patriotism is touching. Have you hugged a veteran today?

I hope that you all have a safe and great 4th of July.

Attention CHLG Members - The Chapel Hill Leads Group's goal is to raise 100+ boxes of cereal a month. If everyone brought one box of cereal to two meetings this month, the Chapel Hill Leads Group would easily exceed the 100 boxes of cereal goal.
