  1. When I read the e-mail about this from you earlier, I have to admit that I was angered and hurt. How can someone take something that is not theirs and possibly ruin something that has been going on for so long? After stewing on it for a few hours and almost putting a few keys through the keyboard, an epiphany dawned on me…. All I’m thinking about is how that person hurt something I care about and I can’t think of anything beyond that. I can’t imagine how to solve this problem with out first letting go of this anger and pain that I feel. The only way that I know how to do that is to forgive the person who has done this, not an easy task but one that has to be done in order to move on to make this years carnival better then the last… I have a friend that’s going to show me how to make balloon animals!!! Just not in the house because Mrs. Who doesn’t like balloons….

    So tonight I’ll slip into slumber with a peace of mind and thinking of a quote by one of the world’s great thinkers, MLK Jr:

    We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

    1. Very good. You can practice the balloon thing at my apartment, if you need to.

      I think when I first saw what had happened I was more disappointing….which in my opinion is way worse then being mad or angry. I realized that we always pull through. We always make things work, so I’m not (too) worried about it.

  2. What is wrong with people? Why did they take that?? There’s some karmic stuff coming round, BroJo, know what I mean? But for you and your guys too — the very best kind.

    1. Thank you so much. Yeah, I’ve been in for about four years now. I was the 2012 Chapter President, this year I’m the Chapter Chairman of the Board and the State Chaplain. Sorry I didn’t get back to you sooner. For some reason this went to the spam folder.
