I want to wish each and every one of you a very blessed Thanksgiving holiday! On that note, I would like to share a story that may serve as a reminder to each of us of what we have to be thankful for as we are each blessed with the opportunity to show compassion each and every day through our profession.
The story is about how Mick Ebeling, founder and creator of ‘Not Impossible Labs,’ is using his belief that anything is possible paired with his technical knowledge to change lives. In November 2013, Ebeling went to Sudon’s Nuba Mountains to help a 14 year-old boy named Daniel who had both of his arms blown off during a bombing. Daniel survived the blast and found hope when Ebeling and his team brought 3D-printers to the region, set up a remote lab and proceeded to create and build a prosthetic arm for Daniel, giving him hope again and restoring his independence. You can read about Daniel’s story and see what has happened since at www.notimpossiblelabs.com or you can watch the video about ‘Project Daniel.’
I have always believed our jobs as educators and counselors was to teach and show our students and clients what is possible, to inspire and equip them with the knowledge, skill, and confidence to make a meaningful contribution in the world using their unique talents. I hope each of you celebrate with your students and/or clients each time they discover the possibilities for themselves in big and small ways through counseling!
