We're featuring a local hockey player on the local sportscasts on CHAB today. Our Marc Smith is talking with Branden Klatt, a young man who grew up in Moose Jaw and now plays for our Warriors. He was acquired in a trade with the Edmonton Oil Kings last season.
A couple of things strike me as I listen to the stories. One is the fact that Klatt listens to the questions and shows the ability to speak fluently and coherently - the very definition of eloquent.
The other thing; Klatt talks about having "a role and identity" on his team, something he believes was lacking when he was with the Oil Kings.
It made me think about us - you and me - and the fact we all need a role and identity, no matter the situation. We need roles and identity in our families, within our social circles and at work. It serves to give us direction and focus.
It's something for you to think about at home and at work today. Thanks, Branden Klatt.
