I got a nice e-mail....
« on: May 21, 2010, 02:53:26 PM »
....from Dana who attended the Exclusive Church Appleseed.

Hi Bob,
I just wanted to take a minute to say thank you again for a most amazing
time on Saturday at the Appleseed shoot. I learned some really interesting
historical facts. The stories you told really helped to create a mental
picture for me. I really do feel I have a new appreciation for what our
forefathers sacrificed for us. Thank you to all the guys who so patiently
instructed and encouraged me on Saturday. I had such a good time. My 53 year
old body is suffering a bit, but I'll recover. That too has inspired me to
get back into better physical condition. Lastly, I want to thank you for
your generosity in treating us to lunch. I look forward to going back ( both
to Yanni's and to another Appleseed) in the near future. I'm feeling very
proud of myself for giving it a try, and I feel I made some
improvement...even if I do "shoot like a girl."
Thank you for all the time, effort and expense that went into making
Saturday a great positive experience for everyone involved.
If ye love wealth better than liberty,the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom,go home from us.We ask not your counsels or arms.Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.May your chains set lightly upon you and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

That's a nice e- mail.
It's got to make you smile to have such a positive impact on others.
You are an inspiration to many, including me.

Raise ye the stone or cleave the wood to make a path more fair or flat
Lo, it is black already with blood some Son of Martha spilled for that
Not as a ladder from earth to Heaven, nor as a witness to any creed
But simple service, simply given, to his own kind in their common need.

It was a pleasure to work with the church group . As is his norm Bob210 did another great job! Thanx Bob O0
I look forward to seeing this group again . I think many I met have a future with the AS program.
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
