Sling Shots and Pit Stops

THE SCENE: Darkish with two parking lot lights out. Might be why we only had 7. Nobody could find us in the dark. Shame.


Given once at 0530. Given second time at 0535 for Flat Tire. Just glad he was there and didn’t actually have a Flat Tire.

If you’re gonna have to do KotB on 9/30, might as well make it just as kooky.

Strength and Decency by Theodore Roosevelt
A snippet from this famous speech:
It is peculiarly incumbent upon you who have strength to set a right example to others. I ask you to remember that you cannot retain your self-respect if you are loose and foul of tongue, that a man who is to lead a clean and honorable life must inevitably suffer if his speech likewise is not clean and honorable. Every man here knows the temptations that beset all of us in this world. At times any man will slip. I do not expect perfection, but I do expect genuine and sincere effort toward being decent and cleanly in thought, in word, and in deed. As I said at the outset, I hail the work of this society as typifying one of those forces which tend to the betterment and uplifting of our social system. Our whole effort should be toward securing a combination of the strong qualities with those qualities which we term virtues. I expect you to be strong. I would not respect you if you were not. I do not want to see Christianity professed only by weaklings; I want to see it a moving spirit among men of strength. I do not expect you to lose one particle of your strength or courage by being decent. On the contrary, I should hope to see each man who is a member of this society, from his membership in it become all the fitter to do the rough work of the world; all the fitter to work in time of peace; and if, which may Heaven forfend, war should come, all the fitter to fight in time of war. I desire to see in this country the decent men strong and the strong men decent, and until we get that combination in pretty good shape we are not going to be by any means as successful as we should be.

Laettner – Decency
Beauty Shop – Josh in rehab

Love to see men like Beauty Shop who take the six, all the way to the point of diverting from group and doing separate exercises with a brother. Appreciate when PAX feel empowered to step up in that way, especially when the AOQ is the QiC as well.

Need PAX to step up and support the launch of Tupelo.
