Week of Giving Thanks: Memories of NCMDS 2014

Posted on Updated on

I ran across this article (below) today from last year and written by my now dear friend and colleague Jason Rolfe of the NOAA Marine Debris Program, and it made so emotional, excited about the future, and grateful to be a part of a group that is working so hard for NC. As I work on all my last minute work, emails, the weekly to-do list, prepping to be gone for a month, and saying my goodbyes and happy holiday messages to head off and set sail on a journey of epic proportions with eXXpedition, I am always reminded of how I got to this place in my life. I most certainly did not get here by myself. It takes a village!

What I have learned so much is that we are never so full of knowledge that we cannot learn from others. Everyone is a stakeholder in this issue and when you give people a voice, they not only make a difference, but they engage others to do so also. Together is better, together is how we improve our community environment.

Much love goes out to all the stakeholders, supporters, volunteers, and contributors to helping prevent and remove marine debris and educate others to do the same! YOU ROCK!
