100 Days Until Race Day



“Nature is smarter than people think. Little by little we lose our friends,
we lose everything.  We keep losin' and losin' til we say you know,
'Oh, what the hell am I livin' around here for?   I got no reason to go on...'


But with you kid, boy, I got a reason to go on. And I'm gonna stay alive, and I will watch you make good.


And I’ll never leave you until that happens. Is that OK?”



Flashback of Mickey (Rocky’s Trainer) in “Rocky V”

For those on the fence in starting your “Hero’s Journey” here’s something to consider. What do you have to lose? From my standpoint, you have everything to gain by doing something like this.


What you may not realize is that your decision to either be “in” or “out” is much bigger than you. By doing something like this, you could be inspiring a young person watching to strive for something larger than they thought possible. Or perhaps, you can be giving an older person, who has the benefit of wisdom, an opportunity to help the next generation by investing in you. Either way, I can tell you from personal experience that a light more powerful than you realize will shine from within as you progress. Before long, people will notice it, and you’ll proudly talk about what you did to get your spark back, so they too can be free.


If you go on this journey, I promise that you will not be alone. Each week, as you work hard and struggle, I’ll be sending these short Freedom’s Light messages to you. And, just when you think you’ve had enough and can’t go on, my notes will be there, telling you,

Get up you son-of-bitch!!  Because God loves you!”

Now, get yourself ready!  We start Monday… 

God Bless,

Freedom's Light Family of Charities

The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's military in their time of need. Because members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury. At Fisher House, no family pays to stay at their facilities. Why? Because a family's love is good medicine…

Hundreds of thousands of military personnel are serving in far-off places defending the liberties we hold so dear - away from their families, friends, and the comforts of home.  In 2003, the USO discovered the changing needs of those thousands of deploying troops.  Understanding the impact that the little things can have and difference they can make, the USO launched Operation USO Care Package providing comforts of home in the form of a care package.  For as little as $25.00 you can send a care package letting a service member know that you care.
