PAGE 2 FRSA FLASH THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER !!!Purpose is the power that directs our lives! A life of fulfillment is discovered by searching forand finding the reason for living. Your life is meant to be lived to the fullest. Too many peoplelive only a fraction of their potential since they have never found their purpose. Rosa Parkswas a woman who discovered the power that drove her life.Rosas recognition of institutional injustice prompted her to take a stand for personal dignity.She believed that having to give up her seat on a bus because she was black was not right.The day she took a stand for human rights is recorded in history as the day equality for allpeople was highlighted in the United States. Rosa, as a middle aged woman found her pur-pose.Determine what really matters in your life. Get in the habit of doing what needs to be done inorder to accomplish the purpose you are resolute about for your life. Then, live your life to itsfullest potential. Like Rosa Parks, your purpose will impact the world around you!

FRSA FLASH PAGE 5When you hear "Operation Purple camp" you should think: Kids Serve Too! The National Mili-tary Family Associations Operation Purple camps are a time for having fun, making friends,and reminding military kids that they are the Nations youngest heroes.The Operation Purple program was created in 2004 in response to the call from military par-ents to "help us help our kids." The mission of the Operation Purple program is to empowermilitary children and their families to develop and maintain healthy and connected relation-ships, in spite of the current military environment. We do this through a variety of means, in-cluding the healing and holistic aspect of the natural world. The program is joint or"purple"— and open to children and families of active duty, National Guard or Reserve ser-vice members from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or the Commis-sioned Corps of the US Public Health Service and NOAA.Since its creation in 2004, the Operation Purple program has grown to serve approximately45,000 military children and teens. The Operation Purple program also includes family re-treats at national parks and specialized family camps geared to address the needs of childrenand families of our nation’s wounded service members.The 2012 traditional Operation Purple camp applications are now available!
