A simple, yet effective movement.

Proverbs 15
A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
The tongue of the wise adorns knowledge, but the mouth of the fool gushes folly.
The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good.
The soothing tongue is a tree of life, but a perverse tongue crushes the spirit.

A friend recently explained this verse to me and it opened my eyes then. Then, just yesterday I heard two accounts of people especially close to me receiving unkind and unfair criticism with harsh words. With some reflection, I thought about it more. Words are something each of us get to use each day, and it’s a decision each of us get to make each day, and it’s a conscious decision to determine the integrity and character in those words. Every moment of every day we have an opportunity to build or tear others down. You never will know the magnitude of your words, especially if they’re unkind or unfair. The way you speak to others is an example that you’re setting for those who look to you as a role model or a leader. No pressure. Choose wisely.


It was quiet and serene especially because the jailbreaks seemed to have no end. But, we all knew better, the quiet and calm was due to no Burrito.

There was an unspoken goal of 100 burpees per man, and we attained the goal; without any complaints

This is a great group of dudes, I don’t get to say that enough, so I’ll mention it here. Extremely proud of these men and their pursuit of betterment within themselves and the encouragement provided to the other pax. It’s an honor to spend my mornings with you guys.
