Government Sheep

This morning, I had another talk with German Chancellor, Herr Hitler, and here is the paper which bears his name upon it as well as mine….  My good friends, for the second time in our history, a British Prime Minister has returned from Germany bringing peace with honor.  I believe it is peace for our time.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  Go home and get a nice quiet sleep.

–British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, 30 Sep 1938

Be Who You Are

No matter what everyone around you is doing, be who you are.  If the entire world seems grumpy, flash your smile and make a joke.  If everyone seems arrogant and full of hubris, show your typical humility.  If you are surrounded by gutters, stand proudly on the hill.  You know your spiritual outcome, and it will never be determined by any person around you or events taking place–no matter how big or important they may seem at the time.
