    Today's Agenda

    1. Welcome - Bobby Mann, Director of Human Animal Support Services
    2. National updates
    3. Mary's Monday Motivation –Terrorism: there are no easy answers, even though there are many platitudes with potential solutions. We need to ask ourselves, "What is that thing that keeps us moving?  What is the primary function of animal welfare?" For Mary, the primary function is to maintain the support and the strength of the bonds between animals and people.  Put people and pets in our vocabulary, our protocols, in our approach to the work we do. Without it, we are doomed.  Talk about the things that do not work. Be honest. Believe in yourself, operate with the strength of your convictions, and know you have answers here on these calls - we can handle the obstacles together.   SURTHRIVAL -meeting life's unwelcome challenges with gusto existential heroes
