    This book, Chase the Lion by Mark Batterson, is one of the best I've read in a while. It challenged my thinking many times. And, I can't begin to count all the little nuggets I took away from it. I highly recommend it!

    I guess it's a good idea not to piss off an elephant. http://mashable.com/2017/02/21/elephant-chases-tourists/#5Fh1e4NjtmqR

    “A man who goes into a restaurant and blatantly disrespects the servers shows a strong discontent with his own being. Deep down he knows that restaurant service is the closest thing he will ever experience to being served like a king.”― Criss Jami

    My son, who is a Marine, is traveling to Tarawa to escort and repatriate some remains of Marines who were killed there in 1943. Pray for traveling mercies for him and that this will bring closure to their families no matter how many years it has been that they lost loved ones.

    Received from an Oregon Resident (after the recent Portland "protest") PLEASE READ!While I was getting a coffee, I overheard 8 young people (22-26 years old, 4 males, 4 female) who have been protesting in downtown Portland the last two nights.I told them I was doing research and asked nicely if they would answer some questions. They were cool with it, so I sat down and went for it.Ø Three voted. Of the five who didn't, none was registered to vote.Ø None of them researched independently either candidate.Ø All were for Hillary but preferred Bernie.Ø Why the Democratic Candidate?"More things are taken care of." "Time to have a woman President." "Democrats aren't sexist or racist."Ø Six of them live at home.Ø All are under their parents insurance.Ø Two have "real" jobs.Ø Four aren't working, nor are they trying hard to find a job either.Ø Parents pay for everything in their life or subsidize it.Ø Six get money from mom or dad every month.Ø Three have been on unemployment for 6+ months.Ø One is at Portland State U, doesn't work, and parents pay for everything.Ø All 8 said Trump is a racist/sexist. I asked to cite proof ... "That tape, man!"Ø When I asked, as a man myself, “Have you ever said anything like that when you've been hanging out with your buddies? All four males said "Yes."Ø Would you say it if you knew you were on tape? All four answered "No."Ø What's the difference? I asked. “You've all said bad stuff like that. Does that mean you hate women and are a sexual predator?" Nothing. No answer.Ø None could tell me how our government works ... they didn't know how laws are passed, how the House of Representatives or the Senate work.Ø None could explain how a bill is passed.Ø Only one could tell me the difference between legal and illegal immigration. One of them said, "Legal immigration is when you immigrate legally." Seriously.Ø None could explain the purpose of the Electoral College or how it works. In 10 minutes they felt they had explained everything. Nice kids ... but so ignorant.I know some awesome, phenomenal young adults; but I'm afraid the majority are like this group. Too many participation trophies, too much coddling by parents and teachers.In 1944, 18 year-olds stormed the beach at Normandy into almost certain death.In 2016, 18-year-olds feel unsafe because words hurt their feelings.This country is in deep something!
