Five years ago today ...
I was in my office in London.
Three days later, I travelled to Dakar, Senegal to work on a 2 month project. Senegal is primarily a Muslim country. Having been there many times, I was not worried about backlash. Instead, I witnessed respect and compassion for The United States and its values.
todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful
that I may not have an awful lot of knowledge, but I do have a lot of experience and common sense
that my problems are high-class problems and most of those are only in my head
that although some character defects reared their ugly heads over the weekend, by talking them out and praying, I was able to get over them
that the USA has not experienced a terrorist attack inside our borders in 5 years
The important thing is to learn a lesson every time you lose.
NOTE: I posted this early because Hayden and I went out of town and I won't be around a computer. I felt it necessary to post something on this memorable day in history. If you don't like it, don't read it.
ooooops, too late!
