The Day We Will Remember

Ricky Rollins, Motivational Safety Speaker

The Day We Will Remember

Our family, friends, and co-workers care what happens to you and you care what happens to them. What happens to you affects them and what happens to them affects you. We should learn from what happens to them and listen to them when they tell us something for our own good. They only tell us things for our own good because they care about us.
