What Do You Do? What Can You Do?

There are poor people all over the world. There are school shootings and 15 week old children being killed. There are people addicted to drugs killing themselves and hurting their families. There are natural disasters displacing, killing, and hurting people. There are people murdering, molesting, and raping.

The world is an evil place if you pay attention. If you pay attention, it can be overwhelming.

What do you do?

What can you do?

I don't know.

But here's what we do.

We help when we can.

We feed and give when we can.

We speak out and try to help those that feel lost when we can.

We love on and send people in directions of help when we can.

We give money monthly to help when we can.

The goal is to expand the "when we can" to discomfort. Do all of these things when we can, but also when it isn't convenient.

And the goal is to expand myself, but also to pass it on to my children. To make them better than myself, to do more to the point of discomfort.

Try to do for one at a time what you'd like for the world.

But not matter what we do, we can always do more, it's an inconvenient truth.

But will you?

Will I?

Slowly...we descend...into...Ignorance

Some days I just can't.

2015 is the year we will remember when everyone became outraged, offended, insulted by something. Jon Acuff had a meme a few weeks ago that said if you see something on social media that insults you, move on. You don't have to post or get involved in every fight.

Yes, there we see them, every day people who are outraged on social media about this or that, post it, feel better about themselves, but actually never do anything. They stand up in public for their views, but I believe that it's part of the narcissistic society we have become.

If I post it, I believe it, I stand for it....and.....

That's it.

But nothing has changed. No new awareness is there because you've created disharmony in a situation you wanted to create a positive change in.

So stop it. Or start your own blog.

When You Have Success...

Do you horde the attention or do you give it to the one who gave you the ability?

Assistant Coach

Head Coach

Assistant Coach

There is very little difference in the look of an assistant coach vs. that of a head coach, but if you look a little closer, you will see.

The head coach has the strain of the program, the assistant coaches basketball and doesn't have that strain.

The head coach deals with so many minute issues many of which are small but proposed by someone who thinks they are large.

The assistant coach listens to the head coach, if they have never been a head coach they think what they would do differently. If they have been a head coach before, they may do it, but they also are glad they don't deal with that anymore.

The HC never does not think of the causes stress, gray hair and losing of your hair.

The experienced assistant may have to be brought back into focus when it comes to the program because they have other issues they are dealing with.
