Team Work

Sometimes it takes economic down turns to make us look at ways to help each other. I heard a story, this evening, about team work that I think needs sharing to all in our industry!
....There was a farmer who desperately needed to move his barn several dozen feet away from its old location. He dreaded the job as his only means of doing so was to dismantle the barn and rebuild on a new foundation. His neighbors heard about his need and came to his rescue. Did they help tear down the barn and rebuild it? No. Over 300 of them came together, jacked up the barn using various tools, and lifted it from its moorings, and then together carried it to the new location....

So who needs your shoulder today?
