Today is a new day. It is the first day of the end of the ravages of such things as diabetes in my life-- as I have asked God on my knees to help me be the man that Jesus wants me to be. My goal is to be more consistent and proficient at loving others, imitating Him and taking better care of myself in the process. I have come to certain self-realizations that aren't pleasant to admit to myself-- let alone anyone else. They are correctable, all of them-- with God's help. I ask of the reader their support and prayers as I endeavor to be the man I know God created me to be.
I was watching Bill O'Reilly this evening as he interviewed Tony Orlando, who has agreed to perform at the Armed Services Ball. Not only is he doing it for the veterans, he is doing it for America -- out of respect for our tradition of a peaceful transfer of power. He made it clear that, had Hillary won and asked him to perform, he would do the same. It is not a partisan thing. It's about America, not an individual. Bravo, Tony. A true patriotic American.
