A Message from Mr. Gilmore

As a new year begins, many people do not find themselves in celebratory moods, but instead struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder or the pain associated with loss and disappointment from the previous year. 

Each of us have memories from the past year that bring us sadness and we all face uncertainties that accompany the unknowns of a new year.
Louis Zamperini, an Olympic athlete who became a prisoner of war during the Second World War (after surviving 47 days adrift in the Pacific in a small life boat) overcame tremendous physical and emotional obstacles and survived, living to be 97 years of age and seeing his incredible story told in "Unbroken."
He recalled two critical phrases that he attributed in part to his ability to withstand his ordeal. The first came from his priest, when Louis was but a young boy: "However dark the night, however dim our hopes, the light will always follow darkness." 
The second thought came from his older brother, who once told Louis, "A moment of pain is worth a lifetime of glory.''
We all will face moments of darkness, but light will eventually triumph, if we persevere. And while our stories may not end up on the New York Times bestseller list or in a movie, enduring a bit of momentary pain will most certainly result in personal satisfaction and growth, if not glory.
As 2015 unfolds, may we all face the dark times and the pain with courage, confidence in the light, and a recognition that faith and an indomitable spirit can combine to make this year our best year ever.
