How can you surf with one arm, but enough about you. I am Leon and I am 9 years old. I also go to Sixes Elementary. At my school we are studying about you. I wonder how much the shark bite hurt. Well do you boogie board as well? Hope you write back,
While the letter is funny enough in itself, it did get me to thinking about how Leon's approach is not unlike how we as adults approach each other as well. Maybe we aren't as blatant as he was, but is the bottom line all about us? Where is our focus? Do we take the time to really listen to each other's story, to each other's concerns? Or are we too wrapped up in our own lives? This is an important concept to consider not only in our personal lives but our work lives as well. To sell a product, to serve a customer, to minister to someone, to teach a class of fourth graders in a meaningful way, it really does have to be about YOU not ME.
