“We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here – that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?” -Dead Poets Society
“Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.” -Casablanca
“Listen to me, mister. You’re my knight in shining armor. Don’t you forget it. You’re going to get back on that horse, and I’m going to be right behind you, holding on tight, and away we’re gonna go, go, go!” -On Golden Pond
“Cinderella story. Outta nowhere. A former greenskeeper, now, about to become the Masters champion. It looks like a mirac…It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole! It’s in the hole!” -Caddyshack

My condolences to all who lost loved ones (for no reason) throughout time. Some people allocate this day or world peace day on 9/21 as a reminder to be the best humanitarian you can be. For me, it’s everyday.
Congratulations to the pioneers/winners below, making the world a better place.
Special Birthday wishes to my nephew, Michael who was born three hours before the tragedy—my family’s shining light before the fall of darkness.
Health, happiness, and peace,
