The Courage to Run
Courage is a relative term, and to run can certainly take on several meanings. Having the courage to run can be interpreted in numerous ways. Make no mistake about it; having the courage to run means we are moving. We are either running from something or toward something; and it’s usually both. Having the courage to run means we’ve made a decision, and our decisions are catalysts for great things. Everything that happens in our lives happens first between our ears and then between our hours. Something is going to happen on Friday, March 11, 2016 in the Mendon-Upton Regional School District. Bring your sneakers. We may even run. It's your time to glisten. Why not you?
