"Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker. Failure is delay, not defeat. It is a temporary detour, not a dead end. Failure is something we can avoid only by saying nothing, and being nothing."
The failure of the internet at this hotel is not my undertaker, just my delay. It's early morning and I'm sitting in Paris trying to do homework, unable to access the site, unable to upload photos on this post. I am able to watch CNN, however, and listen to the atrocities that ISIS is doing to those young women. The rape. The humiliation. Burning alive. Slaves on the boats being murdered. What century do we live in?
I have no right to begrudge the technical challenges I am having right now. I am free and will be flying a heavy jet across the ocean today. I am so grateful for my life. But what can we do for the rest of the world? How can we help those girls?
Despite failure and being pushed back, we must keep pressing forward. Failure is just a detour. We shall succeed in all we do!
Enjoy the Journey! USA... Here I come!
