What is an immigrant if not another word for brethren. Everyone in every family was at one time an immigrant hoping for love and acceptance in a different location.

Most people live lives of "if only." "If only I had done that, everything would be different." But if what happened had not been meant to happen, it wouldn't have happened, hence the "if only" serves no purpose.
Instead, the wise among us live the lives they have, making the most of every precious moment, and of each opportunity that presents itself now.

Yesterday I spoke with "Pete" and a little later with "Mike." Pete is a retired coach and school teacher, who is in great shape and about to hike the Grand Canyon for the 24th time. He has a wife, two daughters and grandchildren.
Mike is a homeless man, an ex-house painter, surviving on the street, and drugs have taken their toll. He wants a better life but is not driven to pursue it. He has no surviving family and is alone in the world.
What do these two men have in common?
