Rolf Sletten, the first ever Bully Spirit Award recipient, presented the prestigious award to the third recipients, Jim and Joanne Kack.
Rolf’s recognition speech of the outstanding Bully Spirit Jim and Joanne have shown over the years follows.
Jim and Joanne, in this world there are people who give and there are people who take.
Some people are scared to death that they might give more than they get and consequently, they almost never give anything of themselves, not of their time, their talents, or their money. If on rare occasion, they do give something of themselves, and are not generously and immediately rewarded, they feel that life is unfair, and they are victims cheated out of something they had coming. I think, “What’s in it for me” is a pretty common attitude. Those are words to live by for too many people.
On the other hand, we have people who give willingly, cheerfully, and generously wonderful people. People with soul and conscience who are not afraid to be generous, people who want to give back to other people and to the community. They are people who don’t worry that they might be giving more than they get.READ MORE »
