“People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are.The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can’t find them, make them.”   George Bernard Shaw.

A few weeks ago when the temperature topped the 100 degree Fahrenheit mark I noticed that this youngster had parked his bike for a few minutes and was relaxing in the shade.He sat there quietly and alone munching on his candy bar while his friends temporarily abandoned him. After his ten minute respite he got up, looked for any sign of his pals and left the spot refreshed. If only parents could learn such lessons of survival learn from their children. — gc
