My Howl: Oct 18 - 24

Friday
Please take a minute to view this video. Yes, to be sure - Benghazi is a political witch-hunt, but Hillary Clinton is still not the candidate of the people. Clearly, the only choice is #berniesanders


Sunday
As a new week begins, I am reflective and grateful that my continued hard work is beginning to pay off. Although the accident in which I suffered a traumatic brain injury is now about 6 years past; relative to TBI - it has been barely a sliver of time. Still, as I assess my progress, I am proud; thrilled that my physical improvement (running as a measure), has slowly improved to the point that I am beginning to see some pre-injury speed return. Sure, I am 50 years old now and it is unlikely that I have the same athletic ability; yet I am stubborn, relentless and aspire to be better
. Day after day, mile after mile, including bumps, stumbles and crashes (in every regard), I move forward, I battle, I win. 

And then there is Bernie Sanders:


"I think many people have the mistaken impression that Congress regulates Wall Street. In truth that is not the case. The real truth is that Wall Street regulates the Congress."
