Learning from a 14 Year Old

Last week, I took a very intense course in Ft. Collins, Colorado from Marshall Thurber. One of the many valuable things I learned was the power of the "weak link," that person or resource who is on the periphery of your hub group but links you with other groups you might not otherwise connect with. The day after returning from the course, the power of the weak link was demonstrated to me by my 14 year old friend, Maddy Baker. I attended the send-off concert of the Washington Children's Chorus, with whom Maddy sings, before they left for a two week tour of Italy. After the concert, we were chatting and Maddy asked me if I knew who Kip Fullback is. He had recently stayed with her cousins while giving the graduation talk at the Washington International School (WIS). Before I had arrived home, Maddy had already sent me the following link so I could see and hear Kip for myself. I found these two minutes to be entertaining, educational, and inspirational. See and hear Kip for yourself through the link below,and thanks, Maddy! Hope you're enjoying Italy!
