    You need to remember where you came from, as well as being aware you’re headed to as you go through life, according to Indiana Farm Bureau 2nd Vice President Isabella Chism.
    Chism lives in Galveston (near Gas City in north central Indiana) with her husband Kent, and has three adult children. They raise corn and soybeans on their farm.
    Chism said that it takes three things to live the good life: persistence, patience, and pride in what you do.
    She asked the audience, “How many of you are activists?”
    Several people raised their hands, and she said, “Every one of you are activists. It means you’re out doing something.”
    Chism was born in Austria, and immigrated over to the United States with her parents when she was six years old. Her father had been a school teacher in Austria before they came over to the US.
    She said that whatever she has done in life or whatever has happened to her in life throughout the years, she truly believes that “every one of us has the seed to be what we are to be.”
