We celebrated our 8th year as a foundation on the 22nd of March. It was a time of solemn soul searching and stock taking, planning and hopeful expectation.
2020 is shaping up to be a year of obligatory introspection and this was a good opportunity for us to take a good, long, hard look at where we have come from, where we are and where we are going. Have we done well? Yes. Can we do more? Yes. Can we grow? Yes. Can we push ourselves harder? Yes. Have we done our best with what we have? Yes.
Eight is the symbol of infinity; having made it to 8 years, we send our prayers ahead that the work we do should impact lives more forever. There have been people we have touched, we wish them continued progress. There have been many projects and programs we have started; we wish them continued strength and impact. There have been processes we have established, we wish them continuous fine-tuning for greater efficiency. There have been partnerships and collaborations we have planted, nurtured and grown, we wish them continuous robust health and goodwill.
As we walk into our ninth year, we are filled with expectations, creativity, and resolutions. This will be a year that will try men’s souls, but it will also be a year of separating the silver from the dross. Let there be a great purification that will usher in a time of excellence; a time of rebirth and renaissance. We will be stronger and better for the future as we examine the past and realigned our strengths for the future.
Happy birthday La Roche Leadership Foundation! May it be well with us as we continue to serve with diligence and integrity, founded on The Rock!
