“Freedom has its life in the hearts, the actions, the spirit of men and so it must be daily earned and refreshed -
else like a flower cut from its life-giving roots, it will wither and die.”

The simplest questions are the most profound. Where were you born? Where is your home? Where are you going? What are you doing? Think about these once in a while and watch your answers change.
- Richard Bach

Footprints in the sand... Where have you been? Where are you going? Pay attention. Don't let resentments or pessimism answer for you.

Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes

My neighbor's young son swallowed a quarter, a dime and a nickel. He was rushed to the hospital.

The next day I asked my neighbor how his son was doing, and he replied, "No change yet".

In one of K.C.'s classes, they were discussing the qualifications to be president of the United States. It was pretty simple - the candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age. However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen.

In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president. KC and the class were just taking it in and letting her rant, but everyone's jaw hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating, "What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"

All Free

The Fourth of July weekend was coming up, and the nursery school teacher took the opportunity to tell her class about patriotism.

"We live in a great country," she said. "One of the things we should be happy is that, in this country, we are all free."

One little boy came walking up to her from the back of the room. He stood with his hands on his hips and said...

"I'm not free. I'm four."

Oh The Weakness Leaving...

Dr. Smith, a character in the decades old TV series, Lost In Space, would constantly moan, "Oh, the pain, the pain." The muscles in my back screamed at me Dr. Smith style.

Ringo Johnson is the certified physical trainer at The ARK. Each Monday and Thursday Ringo conducts a free one-hour training class. Monday's class was especially rigorous as my back muscles reminded me. Ringo sent us through a series of exercises that had me aware of muscles that I hadn't used in that manner in a long time.

I just started 42. One of the things in the proclamation reads:

"I will not complain about ANYTHING.  Not the weather, not the government, not the news, not my aches, not my money, not my kids, my spouse, my job, my car, traffic, or anything else.  I will NOT complain about ANYTHING!"

Anything included my back. The proclamation specifically mentions aches. That aptly described the feeling in my back.

Ringo has muscles hanging off of muscles. He has a statement about the temporary discomfort that you may feel as you get in better shape Ringo style.

He says, "Pain is weakness leaving the body."

I was tempted to complain but I thought about the proclamation and the way that I am to view and speak about things while on 42.

In the words of Dr. Smith on 42: "Oh, the weakness leaving my body, the weakness leaving my body."

I feel stronger already.

The Star-Spangled Banner

Lyrics by Francis Scott Key (01 Aug 1779 – 11 Jan 1843), 1814
 

O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light,
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming?
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watch'd, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof thro' the night that our flag was still there.
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?

On the shore dimly seen thro' the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner: O, long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash'd out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

O thus be it ever when free-men shall stand
Between their lov'd home and the war's desolation;
Blest with vict'ry and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Pow'r that hath made and preserv'd us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our trust!”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
