Four Marks of a July 4th Leader

On July 4th 1776 the Continental Congress voted in favor of Richard Henry Lee’s motion for Independence. (It would be almost a month before the Declaration would be signed.)

How to Live MLK Day Every Day

I only have a vague memory of Dr. Martin Luther King.  I was just 3 years old when he was brutally assassinated.  I simply remember seeing the reports about him when my dad was watching the news.   As someone who is white, I really have no understanding of what it is like for others to […]

My Reading List from 2011 – So Many Books – So Little Time

It is hard to believe that during my early years I did not enjoy reading very much. But now it is a passion. My only regret from 2011 is that I did not allow enough time to review some of the great books that I have already read. So many books, so little time. Oh […]

That Day 10 years ago I woke to another work day. It was to be a warm sunny 86 degrees in Atlanta. I made the 40 mile commute through rush hour traffic to the north side of town to my job at a software company. My coworkers and I laughed and joked around as I […]
