Ever see a Rocky Movie? I kinda stop watching after Rocky IV, however, a friend recently told me about Rocky Balboa (2006). He thought there was a quote in there that was applicable to Highlands Residents.
Rocky was giving some fatherly advice on boxing to his son he says “You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get it and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! ”
I’ve wondered lately how Highlands is going to recover. How many years is it really going to take?
Highlanders are known for their resiliency, their toughness, their willingness to take care of their own.
How they are going to recover is to be prepared to take the next few hits after Sandy and keep moving forward. Dealing with the Insurance companies, the contractors, the banks.. and still end up putting their homes together. That’s how Highlands winning will get done.
