A few weeks back, my wife and I celebrated our 37th anniversary. I often find it sad when people find this amazing. Then when people discover we were married young – I was 18, she was 19 – they are even more astonished.

It’s kind of a trick question: How many people do you know? Don’t cheat. You can’t run and check your Facebook list of friends, nor can you run to other forms of social media and check how many people follow you.

“If you admire somebody you should go ‘head tell ‘em. People never get the flowers while they can still smell ‘em.” –Kanye West, “Big Brother” Regardless how you feel about Kanye West, he’s made relatable music throughout his career and this quote from his third album always makes me pause and think.

In some cases, knowing the subject matter is secondary to managing crowd control. A friend of ours works across the street from a “last stop” high school for children who have been booted out of their original school.
