Standing by you

I'm an 80's child. When you say team..
This is who I think of.

We all want leaders like Hannibal,
sometimes we get Mr. T.

I was at Canada's largest fundraising conference this afternoon. I was at another fundraising association reception after work. I talked to over 250 people today.

Yes....we're doing great things, we're changing the world, saving lives, feeding the hungry etc....

But what about US dear network. Are YOU all right?

I heard some stories of frustration,
of sadness, anger and challenge today.

People looking for work, pushed around,
knocked down, looking for a clear future.

For those of you on the hunt,
looking for your chance to make a difference.

Keep the faith, stay positive,
I'm just one little goofball trying to help

But I'll die trying.

Thank you for allowing a dork like me to be of help.
To simply walk with you at this time.

Hope you know, they and me - stand by you.

Please forgive me for being sappy.
I admire and respect you.

No other way to say, we should be there more.
I promise to be here when needed.
