Sentimental Saturday

I am currently sitting in a hotel room in Albany, NY waiting to leave for today's hockey game against Union. We didn't get to the hotel until late last night due to an accident on I-90 which left us at a stand still for an hour and a half.

That is my Twitter update for the Twitter I don't have because, let's be realistic, my life is just too damn action packed for 140 characters.

I need to finish getting ready in a few minutes, but I wanted to leave you with a quote I heard/read yesterday. My student who helps me out with the hockey team has a tote bag that has a quote by JFK on it. It says, "One person can make a difference, and every person should try."

Imagine if every person tried to make a difference, even just a little bit, how much different the world would be. My main goal when I first started athletic training was to help people. I should want to do more than just help them, I should strive to make a difference in their life. The difference between the two is just taking that extra step. Its more than just handing them an ice bag. Its handing them an ice bag and saying, "You played really well today" or "How is your day going?". Its going above and beyond what is expected.

How will you make a difference today?
