As a young girl, I would cringe when my mother would tell me “do everything in moderation!” Moderation? As I raced all the neighborhood friends in sprints down the hill, collected hundreds of articles to be Battalion Chief during Fire Prevention Week, and read the most books in my sixth grade class, I simply could not relate to moderation. Over the years, I have found the wisdom in moderation and see that it is very applicable to life on a daily basis. Mom, you were right! Here we are happily tipping our hats to welcome in year 2000.
