New Years 2019: Pressing Forward



They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. That is very true. If you don't take that first step, you will never arrive at your destination. Last year our theme was free Tibet and free yourself. Now it's time to press forward. Hard work forever pays yo. The ability to work is not a curse, it is a blessing. Work is the means of all accomplishment. There is no joy without work.

When I was in Ireland, my parents sent me a poster of an old workhorse pulling a heavy load during a blizzard. The caption read, when the going gets tough, the tough get going. That image stuck with me. When times get tough, the tough get to work.

Thomas Paine once said: "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."

Martin Luther King once said “The belief that God will do everything for man is as untenable as the belief that man can do everything for himself. It, too, is based on a lack of faith. We must learn that to expect God to do everything while we do nothing is not faith but superstition.”
