No Excuses!


“Military hero and beloved Dancing with the Stars alum Noah Galloway shares his life story, and how losing his arm and leg in combat forced him to relearn how to live–and live to the fullest.” ~via Amazon

This author will be at the Nashville Public Library on August 25.  In my dream world our entire student population would get to see him/hear him speak.  When asked to run two laps, some of our students invent every excuse in the world not to exert an ounce of energy.  They need a little reality, a little appreciation, a little motivation.

For more information about how to hear Noah Galloway and have him sign a book for you, visit this website:  http://nashvillepubliclibrary.org/salonat615/
