Last week, we were inspired by our nation's teenagers...
This week, we're inspired by our nation's preschoolers!
Many children across the country searched for eggs last weekend.
Colorful treats were hidden indoors, outdoors, all around...
and little ones grabbed their baskets and
tried to find as many as possible.
Have you ever watched a small child on a treasure hunt?
There is a look of intensity that combines belief and focus...
Belief: "There is more treasure out there!"
Focus: "Nothing will stop me--I will find it!"
Do you remember that feeling from when you were young?
You would stop at nothing to find the egg, the gold, the treasure.
Nothing would get between you and the thrill of discovery.
Time goes by...
and as we grow older,
all we discover is apathy.
We cease to believe in the possibility of treasure.
We shrug our shoulders and let someone else do the work.
Let's try to recapture a bit of that childhood enthusiasm...
Belief: "There are many Purple Points out there!!!"
Focus: "We will keep talking and we find them!!!"
The purple points are out there, friends...
let's grab our baskets and start searching!
