Dear Friends,

What will 2009 bring to you, to Best Buddies, to all the world? Only time will tell, as the saying goes. I believe, though, that it is not just time but our own selves that determine what we experience. Although the economy is difficult and getting seemingly worse by the day, we still have the power to choose our reactions to events.

I have witnessed firsthand how people can find something positive and even precious in heartbreaking events and tough times. I believe that people working together for good can achieve it, and I believe Best Buddies is proof of that. William Faulkner said it best, and his words are worth remembering now:

"I believe that man will not merely endure, he will prevail."

I hope the new year brings you health and happiness, and the heart to weather whatever challenges it holds.

All the best,
Lisa Derx
Vice President
