First of all, I wish that everyone had a good Memorial Day!
Found this posted on the Underground, Think that it is very fitting for that day:
“It is the VETERAN, not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
It is the VETERAN, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the VETERAN, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the VETERAN, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
It is the VETERAN, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
It is the VETERAN, not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.”
and there is not a better way to honor those Veterans of the past other than to enjoy the freedoms that are given to us nowadays.
Its been a while since checking in, things sure have been exciting and extremely busy on my end. That has to be a good thing to be this busy at my age, and doing what I love makes all this hard work worthwhile.
Just returned home late Friday night from competing in the Grapplers Quest at the UFC Fan Expo in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas Nevada. It was a great experience, and just like any time competing, I learn more about myself; all while meeting new, great people along the journey. I’v heard over and over again that its not always about what you know in life, but about who you know. Every day I meet new great people who are very supportive towards my goals, and that is exactly the type of people that I need to be surrounded by.
