To Marc and Lily, Captain Kramer, and all of you wonderful people who post just interesting things for all of us to remember and muse on, think back on what we were lucky enough to have experienced, have lived the life we live with the most wonderful people one can imagine, I thank God, my luck on getting on TWA and most of all, the wonderful friendships that I have made and the joint effort we all made to make TWA the #1 airline in the world. No one will ever surpass what we did and yes, I sure enjoyed the ride. God bless at this holy season, stay healthy and if possible, come join us on one of our Conventions. You make it happen, we just pour you a drink or two and love it! PS. I am the bar tender. Tips not included LOL

One Solitary Life
Here is a man who was born in an obscure village, the child of a peasant woman. He grew up in another village. He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty. Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher.

He never owned a home. He never wrote a book. He never held an office. He never had a family. He never went to college. He never put His foot inside a big city. He never traveled two hundred miles from the place He was born. He never did one of the things that usually accompany greatness. He had no credentials but Himself...

While still a young man, the tide of popular opinion turned against him. His friends ran away. One of them denied Him. He was turned over to His enemies. He went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed upon a cross between two thieves. While He was dying His executioners gambled for the only piece of property He had on earth – His coat. When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Nineteen long centuries have come and gone, and today He is a centerpiece of the human race and leader of the column of progress.

I am far within the mark when I say that all the armies that ever marched, all the navies that were ever built; all the parliaments that ever sat and all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not affected the life of man upon this earth as powerfully as has that one solitary life.

Written in 1926

Merry Christmas everyone!

I hope to see everyone on the TARPA cruise....
