We’ve lost our “community”

We’ve lost our “community”

The mere fact that I am a "truck driver" had me voting, early, today as I will be out of the area for November 3.  I have not missed an election since my eighteen(18) birthday.  I believe that voting is a "civic responsibility" and should be undertaking seriously at every election. There is never a point that any election is too small or insignificant: local only to national they all need input from the local citizen.

 What happens in a "split second" often has an impact on your immediate and distant future.  As a "professional truck driver", it is easy for me to relate events that I see and/or experience on the road to the broader meaning of life.  Take this moment as an example:  I am traveling along a very curvy LA highway, it is a two lane and winds down through the swamp, over and around bayous.  Key point to remember: if there is a shoulder (in this case NONE), it is soft; especially because of the current rain and the previous storms.  My cargo…

Commit and Strive to be better.

Whistle Blower

Whistle Blower

You cannot have a second whistleblower restating comments to the same situation: you can only have a collaborator. It is a rather simple concept. There is only one FIRST, anything following this would be sequential, follow-up, add-on, etc(this could go on and on). Think about it you had your first kiss; you cannot go on and then decide to have another first. So someone gives you some great news, that's exciting. The next person gives you some great news; however, it is now old news as the fact that you have this information numbs the affect. You could still celebrate…
