Some Inspiration from our Brothers and Sisters in South Carolina

This is taken from the Palmetto Blind. It was written in mid-December, so what appears here represents looking forward into 2024. The first piece is written by affiliate president Marty McKenzie, and the second by David Houck, a man who is celebrating his fortieth year of service as a staff member for the National Federation of the Blind of South Carolina. Here is what they say:

Marty on the subject of winning teams: The key points are: Teams must understand each other and their roles, capitalize on each member's strengths, reach consensus as a team, build trust, and respect each other. We are a winning team.

David concludes the newsletter with a "FINAL THOUGHT:"

HAPPY NEW YEAR! When midnight strikes on December 31, 2023, after all the holiday get-togethers and parties are over, the 2024 New Year dawns as a clean slate. We take into account our blessings for those who have gone before us, paving our way toward a bright future. It is time to awake, become active, participate in those things which make life better for everyone, and actively participate!

When we all work as a team, we can conquer huge tasks and make a real difference for all concerned. Let's not sleep through the winter season, hoping that spring will solve our problems. Don't spectate, but participate!

NFB Pledge

I pledge to participate actively in the efforts of the National Federation of the Blind to achieve equality, opportunity, and security for the blind; to support the policies and programs of the Federation; and to abide by its constitution.
