More Than Words is an initiative of the United Way of Whitewater Valley which seeks to bring together schools, businesses, and community organizations around the common language of a value word and application every month.
A month ago, the nation was swirling with emotions, thoughts, fears, hopes, and unknowns. Talking about humility (and acknowledging those who are showing it) felt like the perfect word in a crazy time. This month, we are again right in line with what our newest MTW value word is: Determination - deciding it's worth it to finish what you started.
As the weather changes for the better and we see how our humility, self-sacrifice and reliance on our front line and essential workers has helped us all, we can feel determined: we can do this!
And sometimes, to help us find determination, we need a pep talk. Here's one from 2015 and everyone's favorite Kid President: https://www.ted.com/talks/kid_president_i_think_we_all_need_a_pep_talk
Each bubble holds all the files needed to learn and grow in this months word.
