ABC Evening News with Diane Sawyer, on Fridays, honors a “Person Of The Week” at the end of the broadcast. Last night it was Garth Brooks, who’s sold more music than Michael Jackson. He’s doing 9 concerts in 6 days and donating all the money to the Tennessee flood victims.
Ever have something on your mind, for a long time, and then you are given a sign?
Feels good. Liberating. Joyful. Doesn’t it?
I’d like to honor my favorite human with a special Garth Brooks song. It leans on the sappy side, but it is…real life in real time. It’s also the first time I’ve heard this rendition:
Watching (not really, more like listening) ABC Evening News a few weeks ago, Vice President Joe Biden spoke of fond memories and important lessons he learned from his mother.
She had died the day before.
Of all the things Vice President Joe Biden said, it’s his mother’s advice at the top here, that resonated the most.
Personal responsibility is really the key to success. I’ve known this all my life and you have too.
Having a ten year plan has really helped me see what’s still possible, but not guaranteed.
Not six months. Ten years.
PS. This is the first dupe post. By accident. Seems it posted January 9 at Lane 8, but for some reason it also sat in jeffnoel.com It is a major rule to not recycle content here. I’m gonna let this one ride though.
Why? Because one dupe post ain’t gonna end the world. Besides, the endings are different, unbeknownst to me.
