Good news is good news

The Thursday, June 9 issue contained an article and a notice that touched my heart.

Dear editor,

I never miss reading The Record.  The Thursday, June 9 issue contained an article and a notice that touched my heart.

The article NIC enriches lives on the North Island about Leif Geillen growing from a janitor to receiving his computer science certificate.

A notice in the Happy Thoughts section, the parents of Andrew Edward Booker Baskier  (a member of Whitefish/Goodfish Cree Nation) congratulating their son  for being: “… the first member of both the Grossmann and Claydon families to receive a university degree on Canadian soil.”

Now how great is that! Two young men who reached for the stars and made dreams come true. Proof all our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.
