Time well spent with one of my heroes

Joannie Rochette is one of my heroes. The Canadian figure skater lost her mother to a heart attack during the 2010 Vancouver Games. A few days after her mom’s sudden death, Rochette won a bronze medal, a testament to her strength and determination. She described her Olympic experience at a conference I attended recently and afterwards I got to meet her.

Two slogans I heard often as a child were, “Stop, drop and roll,” and, “Don’t talk to strangers.” Both sayings were meant to keep me safe.
