As you leave your offices and homes to travel to the places where family and friends will gather on this Thanksgiving Day, I share with you this video. It is worthy of your attention, both in giving thanks to those who support you and in giving thanks that the journey is made easier by their efforts.
The video was sent to me by a young woman lawyer friend of mine earlier this week, and I was so pleased to respond that I know the speaker, Alan Bryan, who is an enthusiastic supporter of Best Friends at the Bar. I was present to hear him deliver these remarks at the National Association of Women Lawyers conference several years ago, and, like so many others in the audience, I was inspired by his words. I know that you will be also, and I encourage you to watch the video.
Be sure you watch and listen all the way to the end. It is there that Alan talks about his aspirations for his daughter, then a two-and one-half-year-old bundle of energy and determination. You will be cheating yourself if you skip it.
This is my gift to you on Thanksgiving Day 2018. I wish you and your families and friends well, including safe travels, tasty food, and love all around.
