Today is a new year for me. It’s truly a blessing from God above to be able to say you’ve made it to another year when some people didn’t make it through the night. Life is delicate, precious, and can be taken from you at any given moment, so every day I’m alive, I cherish the opportunity to live. Being alive and living are not interchangeable so I challenge each and every person who can read this to do something. Make an impact on this temporary place that some of us call “home.” This isn’t home for me. I’m here to make this world a better place than it was when I arrived. When I’m done, then I’ll be going home.
For me, today is no different than yesterday or tomorrow. Today is a day that I will thank God for, just as yesterday and hopefully tomorrow. Today is a day of work. For I am one of many who chose to become a beacon of peace and good will. I hope this message has reached someone and given light to who I am beyond the computer screen or mobile device you’re reading it on. I pray this message has changed someone’s heart today. I thank God for His many blessings including my health and my family. I pray for you and yours as well.
Love you guys,
I didn’t want to buy into it, but they just have cool stuff being made over there all the time, and this underwater “Water Discus Hotel” plan has just given me a tech/travel woody.
The architectural plan has a FREAKING level of the hotel that will be 20+ stories underneath the water. Ha. TAKE THAT SPONGEBOB! ”Fuck yo’ COUCH!!!!”
It’s nice to meet you again. We have the best of times right now, but like an old warrior, I keep having flashbacks of the rough fights and when I thought we would never cross paths and run in the same circles.
Those nights I studied my ass off not knowing how I would fare the next day….That one week when I was homeless but still showing up for work on the 3rd shift and dependent upon my next paycheck not knowing where I would sleep….That critical time when I was unsure how I would be as a father, caring for a life other than my own.
You had been wildly elusive until I caught you and we started to get acquainted with one another. You moved me from Memphis, Tennessee to Saint Louis, Missouri as a young man and allowed me to figure out who I was as a person and become a man. I conquered. 18 months ago, you moved me across the state to Kansas City to make some power moves at work. I conquered. Monday I will take another huge step. I’m ready for the challenge. I failed often, early in my life, but now…. I know you well. You’ve introduced me to your cousin Opportunity who has knocked at my door frequently. Thank you. I will not disappoint.
Your new, ‘old’ friend,
Yo….. the posts about Whitney dying and everybody caring, and soldiers dying and nobody caring OR the variation of millions dying in Africa ARE ALL IN BAD TASTE
Everyone has family or friends that has served in the military and I think this country does a great job collectively of honoring our heroes and protectors. Same deal with charities and concern of our fellow man whether or not they live in our country. It is in my opinion that this country does the most for other nations in need than any other sovereign nation on this PLANET. PERIOD.
So if the news doesn’t report stories every single day about children suffering from hunger in Africa and a soldier dying in battle, which are both horrible occurrences that I wish would never happen, and that bothers you, I think you lack understanding of how news networks and electronic media sources work. I also think you would NEVER tune in to the news every day to see a starving child report.
Think responsibly America.
