Double dog dare ya’

Jim Martinson, Neil Duncan, Andrew Sullens, Nicolette Maurolis, Chad Jukes, Brad Snyder, The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team, Ryan Job, Noah Galloway.

A remarkable Honor Roll to guide Hero Week. Each illustrating the theme “indomitable spirit” and mastering the ability to, what Viktor Frankl called,  “turn a predicament into an opportunity” or “turn tragedy into triumph.” And in that way, as we look into ourselves, there is a personal challenge…the first dare, if you will…to face obstacles, differences, and life in general with that same positiveness, focus on success and indomitable spirit.

 The second dare  was this existential moment, considering the WW tagline, “the greatest casualty is being forgotten.” These heroes refuse to be forgotten. They have left an indelible  “footprint,” drawing a line in the sand for our own introspection regarding family, work, and a life of meaning. Thank you and enjoy. And now back to your regular programming.

    Nice recap MD. In the midst of HW it’s amazing how much brain capacity I spend worrying/thinking/anticipating with excitement the next workout. I’m left with a huge void-can’t wait for July!

    Something tremendous in every frame! Hope that’s a preview of what’s to come for 2013 at CF. If we can maintain even half that intensity, it’ll be a good year!
