There is a scene in Jerry McGuire where Tom Cruise stays up all night writing his "mission statement" on how he wants to revamp player management. He then stands in middle of his crowded office and shouts "I'm leaving, who's coming with me?" Well, today I had my own Jerry McGwire moment.
I've been involved in my kid's PTA for the past 6 years. I've chaired various committees and even served on the executive board. In all that time, I've never felt that much as changed. Sure little things here and there, but there is still so much more I want to see happen for the kids. After about my 100th "what if" conversation with one of my friends we decided the time is now.
It seems the stars are aligning and a group of pretty action minded moms are ready to create the empowering and inspiring environment our kids deserve. So today, I sent out my own "mission statement" and asked "who's coming with me?"
