It's tough out there, no doubt.

“We have barely emerged from centuries of barbarism. It's not a surprise that there are shocking inequities in this world. It is hard work to climb down out of the trees and walk upright,and build a viable global civilization when you start with technology that is made of rocks and sticks and fur. This is a project, and progress is dificult.” -Sam Harris

“Every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.” -Einstein

Upward and onward. Cheers to Civilization wherever it's found.

From Micah today......
: )


This is what it's all about. This makes not having running water for four weeks, cockroaches in the latrines, mosquito, ant and bed bug bites, beans and rice every day, hand-washing clothes, and all those things that we are so fortunate to have in the states worth it. The moment you see that smile light up a room, nothing else matters!

No way Dean, you selling that sweet pad in June Lake? Wish we had the money to buy it, really liked that house and area when we visited.

On days off from school, Micah has the opportunity to journey to remote villages and work with the locals. She took a small tent along so she could do just that.

Here she is, along with fellow students, riding in the back of a truck to their destination...

Yes she is. She graduates from her school next Tuesday, then is going to work in an orphanage in a small village for a couple of weeks.

She is due home on the 19th of August.

Unconditional love, this is. Been missing this child SO much....but pictures like this bring me SO much joy, knowing my daughter is making a difference in the lives of those she meets.

A bit reflective / foreboding of Hillary Clinton and Michael Jordan, perhaps.

Oh, you're too harsh!

For starters... cute, compassionate, outgoing, clearly know's what she wants and how to go about it (opportunistic), on top of the world - how can you not see the comparisons?

Ha! :)
