I try to always remember the Serenity Prayer. Too often people make mountains out of mole hills. Too often people don't take time to smell the roses. Too often people place too much importance on having a title, or having material things. When really they have no importance at all. Some people have a hard time separating fiction from reality. In 2009 I took a trip to Europe that followed the path of the 101st Airborne during WWII. I met a witness of the war who was nine years old during the war. Her family had been separated during the war, they lost their home and all possessions. After the war was over and her family was back together they were happy. When asked today how they could have been happy after losing everything; she answers "We were alive, we were healthy, and we were together again." That about says it all.
