Honoring World Refugee Day

Commented Jun 21, 2009 at 22:58:02 in World

“Queen Noor, I salute you. And there are not many I salute. May your courageous soul be always filled with the obvious love you have for mankind. There will always be naysayers, but, don't let them divert you from protecting those who have not, those who must rely on others to grant them mercy and shield them, however slightly, from the dark forces. Peace, not only to you and all the refugees, but to us all who must live in this world of constant sorrow. Lift up your eyes to the eternal light, which is not earthbound, which has no name, and is there for those who seek strength of character as the only true salvation.”

Remembering My Father

Commented Jun 21, 2009 at 22:34:39 in Healthy Living

“My Dad passed last year. That's okay. I told him I loved him many times before he left for a better place. Complicated man. Not a great father, but, we had some really good moments. We had the same sense of humor, pretty dry. He loved to fish, but, never caught one. NEVER. Well, actually, he did catch one, but, it jumped out of his hands and back into the water when he was taking it off the hook. Smallest fish I've ever seen on a hook in my life. He was so excited and pleased when he got it in the row boat. You should have seen the look on his face after the fish jumped back into the water. Priceless. It still makes me laugh and that was 30 years ago. Happy Father's Day, pop. I'm writing a screenplay to honor your better side, and good fathers, and Father's Day. A family comedy. And, I'll find a way to include a scene with a barbeque, don't worry. www.brianmathewkowalchuk.blogspot.com

Beyond the Boardroom: My Thoughts on Fatherhood

Commented Jun 21, 2009 at 22:21:46 in Healthy Living

“Rob Wunder is a pretty impressive individual. Very, very impressive. The simply eloquent, "He's my son," speaks volumes of his character, and of the greatness and elevation to the human condition that a father can bring. I salute you, Mr. Wunder, and I do not salute many people. Glad to hear Coach K appreciates and respects the simplicity of his daughter's love, and I hope George Stephanopoulos makes a trophy from the stuffed yellow duck. Sounds like an heirloom to me. (Maybe he could introduce a Daily Quacker Award on his radio show. I'm sure there are plenty of politicians and executives who are worthy of the honor.) Congratulations on your Father of the Year honor, Mr. Tisch. You must be doing something right if your children are complaining about not getting a vote. (Keep him in line, you guys.)”

Beyond the Boardroom: My Thoughts on Fatherhood

“I agree with you about Fatherhood being not only a responsibility, but, an honor. My Dad passed last year. That's okay. I told him I loved him many times before he left for a better place.

Reflections of Dad

Commented Jun 21, 2009 at 19:47:07 in Healthy Living

“I won and lost several marble collections growing up. I always liked the "steelies" and "purees". Steelies were stainless steel marbles and Purees were solid colors. Black marbles were called "black beauties". Steelies and Purees and black beauties were always worth more than regular marbles. But, I liked regular marbles, too. And I can't remember what the big ones were called. Anyway, for some reason, that leather marble bag possessed magical qualities. Maybe it was my own world, independent of a complex family life.
