Speaker Reception featuring Marcus Aurelius on Thursday, May 2 from 5:30-7:00 PM at Riverdale Elementary School

Germantown, Tennessee--April 29, 2019--ServiceMaster by Cornerstone hosted cityCURRENT Speaker Reception featuring Marcus Aurelius on Thursday, May 2 from 5:30-7:00 PM at Riverdale Elementary School. 

Marcus suffered a severe spinal injury while preparing to deploy with the U.S. Army, and after dying on the operating table twice, was left paralyzed from the neck down and told he'd never walk or use his hands again. Once he started seeing his Adversity as a gift instead of a curse, something miraculous began to happen. At our event, Marcus will be sharing his story and important lessons from his life and book, The Gift of Adversity: Overcoming Paralysis and Pain to Find Purpose.
 
This event, hosted by ServiceMaster by Cornerstone in conjunction with Germantown Municipal School District and Riverdale Elementary School, is free and open to the community. Space is limited and an RSVP is required. Refreshments will be provided.
