All of the posts about all of the things

Change

Service

The military is more than statistics, strategy, politics, and war. It is a collection of men and women who train, live, and work in the service of our nation's freedom. It is their dedication and commitment to their duty that afford us all the way of life that we [...]

  Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, Captain America, Dora, Barbie, Little Einsteins, Scooby Doo... You name the problem, and there is a super hero out there to solve it. I don't know where these people dream up their fictional characters, but they are pretty fantastic. Kids love them, and need [...]

New Year • New Plan

New Year's Resolutions. Goal setting. Annual themes and projects. Whichever perspective you choose, this time of year is a time of reflection, reevaluation, and renewal.
