  • When you're weary...

    Print this out and carry it in your wallet to read from time to time:

    "It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat". - Theodore Roosevelt

    Remember this: Though few, if any, of those who passed within your protective domain today paused to thank you, all can sleep in their beds tonight because you and many others like you were at your posts, and those who might have thought to do them harm - seeing that you were there, both watchful and ready - thought better of their plans...and moved on. Never wonder whether or not you make a difference...society as we know it could not exist without you.

      SecTrainer, that was indeed a good and thoughtful post.
      Reminders like that help us soldier on despite the impediments placed in our way.
      Enjoy the day,
