    There’s more positive meaning and purpose in your life in everything you do if you do it mainly for others rather than for yourself. *In swimming I did it for my team and my coach back in the days before modern technology improved the pools and swim gear.
    *Whatever you continue to do in your life, try and get people to treat one another better. *It’s critical for all our progeny’s future. Keep swimming some each day. It will help you to be able to continue to help others in need.
