Gratitude is a virtue, character trait, and an emotion embedded in the spirit of giving and sharing. By living a life of gratitude, we find meaning in our personal and professional lives.
I ask us to demonstrate our gratitude together by continuing to support the Foundation as part of the Gratitude Circle.
