Joannie Rochette displayed amazing focus as she courageously moved forward determined to win a medal in spite of her mother’s recent fatal heart attack after arriving in Vancouver.
She continued on to earn a bronze medal and attributed her success to her mother, Therese, who wanted a better life for her daughter than she herself had.
When dealing with bullied children, we can learn from the strength and focus shown by Joannie Rochette.

“The steeper the mountain the harder the climb the better the view from the finish line.”
I find this quote inspirational as we at ‘Stand Up Now’ work on the challenge to increase respect and reduce bullying in our society. I think this quote must also be inspirational to athletes as they prepare for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver to take place February 12 to 28, 2010. Go athletes, go!
