Men still read poety:

Invictus by William Ernest Henly

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.


In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.


Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds and shall find me unafraid.


It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the master of my fate,

I am the captain of my soul.


We as men have to accept responsibility for our actions whether they be good or bad.  We have to be honest with ourselves and the God which made us.


Told a little about a time in Colombian history in which civil wars was taking place when a lot of violence took place.  One of the fear and intimidation tactics was killing someone by slitting their throat and pulling their tongue out the slit. Approximately 180,000 people died during the time and 20% of the population was killed or injured during the period.  My family was effected by having to abruptly leave their family farm and flee to the city never to go back. With a time of so much violence good ended up prevailing. In the later years cartel members would utilize the Colombian Necktie technique to strike fear in their enemies but in the end the most of the cartel members died violently as well.


I was really impress first by o-postive because when I had to modify he was still doing the workout. Secondly, Bocephus and Bombay which had come only once before made it through an advance workout along with our FNG. I almost splashed merlot more than once on this beatdown.

Soybeans mother, Bocephus has a job interview today.
