As we come to the end of another year, it is appropriate to reflect on the truly important things in life such as family, friends, and the joy of living. 

As one gets older, it becomes more apparent that life is an adventure, that goes by all too quickly, during which we need to savor and cherish every moment.   I, as most people, hope for a long life; however, as I reflect on the true value of life, I have come to believe that it should not be measured simply by the ticks of the clock; but, it should also be measured by the beats of your heart.  The true value of life is not just how long it lasts; but also the enthusiasm, energy and compassion with which you live it.       

We at USFSB wish you much success and a great adventure now and for many years to come.
