While we all strive to be more and more politically correct and sensitive to each other we must also remember that when we begin to exclude parts of history we then exclude all of history. If we are to forget those moments of history we do not like to remember we also forget those who brought us out of those dark moments. This is the theory of All or Nothing. You can tear down statues of General Lee, “Stonewall” Jackson and all reminders of the Confederacy… but then we lose the importance of Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglas and the 54th Massachusetts. To remember heroes you must remember what made them heroes, to disregard it is to forget those deeds done by people to change it.
How to celebrate – Don’t disregard history just because you didn’t like it. Choose to remember, not forget. You cannot have a hero without first having a villain.
July 26th All Or Nothing Day
Today is the day that you should go for broke and gamble
it all that you will win! It’s time to show you are “All In” on whatever it is
you are going to do. This can include gambling everything on the stock market(
Not a good idea), jump in that pool before checking the temperature of the
water (But make sure there is water there first) or tell someone that you love
them (Even if they have never met you before) In other words, damn the
torpedoes, full speed ahead! The point is, when you give something your all you
will always get better results than if you do it half-way. You can win big, or
you can lose big, but the results will probably change your life forever.
How to celebrate – Commit to something in your life. Go
the track and bet on your favorite horse! Try submerging yourself into a real
passion and make it work for you.
