Good Men


My experience one Saturday afternoon at the Iwo Jima Memorial Monument made it clear that our Revolutionary War for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness changed the trade, commerce, opportunities, standard of living, and history; not just in the Western Hemisphere, but in the whole world.

When the taxi pulled up to the memorial, I told the driver to wait. I only wanted to read the plaque, take a photo and return to my hotel. As I walked around the circular drive, I noticed all of the other tourists were gathered to one side, standing off in a state of shock and awe.

Living with Integrity

“With integrity, you have nothing to fear, since you have nothing to hide. With integrity, you will do the right thing, so you will have no guilt.”—Zig Ziglar

There were four clergymen discussing the merits of various Bible translations. One liked the King James version because of its simple, beautiful English. Another liked the American Revised version because it was more literal and came nearer to the original Hebrew and Greek. Still another liked Moffat’s translation because of its up-to-date vocabulary.

The fourth minister was silent. When asked his opinion, he replied, “I like my mother’s translation best.”

Best Person You Can Be

Learning to Be the Best Person You Can Be

Knowing who you truly are and being the best you can be means understanding that you’d make a lousy somebody else. The human spirit is a powerful force and is controlled by our ability to face our fears, struggle and make it through life’s storms. For this reason, our self-worth should always be the sum total of our thoughts, not the result of a miscalculation and multiplying of our insecurities.

Why are you where you are? Why are you doing what you’re doing? Why should you give it everything you’ve got, when less would be sufficient? Why does positive thinking matter?
