Relief of Vietnamese prisoners at Hoa Lo Prison- Hanoi, Vietnam


The test of character is not ‘hanging in’ when you expect light at the end of the tunnel, but performance of duty and persistance of example when you know no light is coming.”

Story of the Two Wolves

An old Cherokee told his grandson, “my son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all.

One is evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies and ego.

The other is good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, and truth.”

The boy thought about it, and asked, “Grandfather, which wolf wins.”

The old man quietly replied, “The one you feed.”

One Million Page Visits Milestone Reached

A week ago, in an update of backstage information, I noted that I was approaching a million pages visited. I had hoped to hit that number by the one year anniversary of the site. Just to let you know, we have in fact hit that milestone number today in approximately ten (10) months.

Visitor Page Visits
Yesterday: 803 11,090
Last 7 Days (Week): 6,302 81,475
Last 30 Days (Month): 30,032 284,169
Total (10 Months): 178,463 1,002,775


As we move forward there are several upgrades we hope to make to improve the site. Please bear with us as we work through some programming changes which among other things will include making comments more interactive.

Thank you for helping us hit that goal by visiting the site.

I Will Do More

I will do more than belong – I will participate.

I will do more than care – I will help.

I will do more than believe – I will practice.

I will do more than be fair – I will be kind.

I will do more than forgive – I will forget.

I will do more than dream – I will work.

I will do more than teach – I will inspire.

I will do more than earn – I will enrich.

I will do more than give – I will serve.

I will do more than live – I will grow.

I will do more than suffer – I will triumph.
