I recently attended my high school alumni banquet and the featured speaker
gave the graduates a very simple motto for life that I would like to pass on, with an appropriate change. "If it is to be, it is up to me" can be added to
our efforts as "If it is to be, it is up to us". The alliteration changes but the
meaning is more inclusive and everyone who reads it is certainly doing their
part as a member of the "us". Thank you for being part of US.
