As We Go Dark...

Please enjoy these compilation of thoughts as we gear up for March throughout our properties and as we hope all enjoy live Feed of SkyNews & Al Jazeera along with our Daily Updates produced for us by Paper_li in our Twitter Channel:

We shall draw from the heart of suffering itself
the means of inspiration and survival.
- Winston Churchill

Being defeated is often a temporary condition.
Giving up is what makes it permanent.
- Marilyn vos Savant

Expect to have hope rekindled.
Expect your prayers to be answered in wondrous ways.
The dry seasons in life do not last.
The spring rains will come again.
                                                                                     - Sarah Ban Breathnach

If I could tell the world just one thing
it would be we're all okay,
and not to worry cause worry is wasteful
and useless in times like these.
I won't be made useless.
I won't be idle with despair,
I will gather myself around my faith.
Light does the darkness most fear.
- Jewel

Onward !!!!

Notations On Our World (Special Edition): On How Far We've Come...

It is always fascinating to us as our journey of service continues to be reflective as we are here.   As this property is dedicated to Education,  we found it poignant on where we've been.   This one was the total internet in 1969:

What we also found hillarious was this courtesy of Vala Afshar when Sir Tim Berners-Lee first proposed the Interent to @CERN--their response:  Vague, but exciting...

Look at how far we've come!!!

Onward :)
