curt_patrouilleThis Sunday evening, I attended a United We Stand Speaker. Curt Patroullie spoke about resilience and his experiences with it. His stories about the army, college experiences, and losing his mother moved everyone in the room. Sharing another’s story about a quadriplegic who with his father’s help, participated in charity runs, marathons, triathlons, and iron man competitions.

He showed us how to make anything into a positive. His motto is “If it is to be, it is up to me.”.
