Littlejohn has power to motivate
To the editor:
I have known Edward Littlejohn for a very brief time, compared to many. Although our relationship started out as business associates, I now consider him and his family my dear friends. Littlejohn has the passion, knowledge and vision this community needs to create growth that would be parallel to neighboring counties.
I have seen him interacting with the teenagers and children that he’s in charge of in the P.R.I.D.E. Program, as well as his martial arts studio. He may have to correct his students and give a consequence but it’s always done with respect, firmness and kindness. These young people may not realize it, but they have been in the presence of a great role model in Edward Littlejohn. They have had the opportunity to observe the “yes, I can” attitude, social cues, manners and good coping strategies he portrays.
Many times, we feel that our accomplishments are trivial. Littlejohn, with his uplifting “can-do” attitude, points out how the little goals achieved are still big wins. He once said to me, “I am no one special, and if I can do it, so can you.” His words have the power to motivate people and make them do the unexpected.
Littlejohn is willing to do the work and do the right thing. Make sure your voice is heard and exercise your right to vote. Vote for Edward Littlejohn for Jefferson County commissioner!
