Sarah was persistent. She wrote articles and letters to governors and the president pleading her case for Thanksgiving. The fifth president she wrote to finally said yes. After pursuing this dream for 36 years, President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation declaring a national day for Thanksgiving.
Leah is most definitely persistent and passionate. When she gets an idea in her head, she goes after it. She does not stop until the possibility of her idea has been fully considered. I love that about her.
We can learn so much from our children. Just like Leah, we want to be persistent in pursuit of our dream to find a cure for cystic fibrosis. We want Leah to have a full life ahead of her to pursue her dreams. We won't give up our fight until a cure is found.
