The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." --William Arthur Ward

Talked to my longtime mentor Thursday and was reminded how blessed I have been with great mentors and teachers throughout my life and career. I am a grateful and fortunate recipient of their counsel, knowledge and wisdom. Will be making an announcement soon on the next exciting phase of my life and career. Looking forward with excitement to the next 4 years! I thank God for this incredible journey. #bringiton2017 (photos by Victoria Brooks Photography)

Yesterday was a wonderful and inspirational day, after a long day of working; I was invited to attend an "Interfaith Council" meeting; it was an awesome experience to sit around a table with community leaders from the Bahai Faith, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim and Jewish religions and talk about how we can begin working together to make our community more loving, respectful and tolerant of differnt cultures and perspectives. To see people of different backgrounds, religious beliefs and ages laughing and working together was inspiring. I thank them for allowing me to have a seat at the table. Before that at the invitation of Pastor Michael L. Jannett, I attended the Fall Festival and "Trunk and Treat" at the Advent Lutheran Church in Murfreesboro, cute little kids running around everywhere having a great time; thank you Pastor Michael for the invite. I ended the evening (and honestly this morning) with the crew at Greg and Kassie Smith's Halloween Party....we had a blast! Today, I'm off to our church's (World Outreach Church) "Hoe Down"; please feel free to join us. The event is free and we have acres of rides, activies (rock climbing walls, hay rides,etc) along with truck loads of candy, popcorn and other tasty treats for the young and old!!!! The event is today (October 30th) from 1pm-5pm at World Outreach Church, 1921 New Salem Road, Murfreesboro.

It was 9/11/2001, my office (Chemonics International) was on 20th Street, NW Washington DC. Ashraf Rizk, Tony Teele, and I first heard the news on TV in our boardroom and later could see the smoke from Flight #77 that hit next to the Pentagon. We decided to stay in the building while the streets filled with cars. The overwhelming sadness was only equalled by the uncertainty that it wasn't over. The next day as I walked to work seeing armed soldiers on every corner I knew that our lives would never be the same. Yet, I was inspired by the stories of courage and people helping people; the strength of our country had been realized in our darkest hour. 4 years later I would make my first trip to Afghanistan and would see first hand the impacts of war and terrorism while dealing with the murders of eleven of our colleagues at the hands of the Taliban. I was then able to see first hand and appreciate the sacrifices made by our men and women in the military and our foreign aid workers. I also grew to respect the resilience of the Afghan people, fighting to make a better life for their families in the midst of chaos. For a brief moment we were one; may we never forget what made us great. Yes, "we are our Brother's keeper". Today, I stand in prayer for all those who lost loved ones on that tragic day and everday since as a result of this horrific act of violence. 15 years later and we are not safer but are experieincing a world that is less stable and secure. We still have much work to do to make the world a safer and better place for all God's children. #healtheworld #supportourheroes

Our thoughts and prayers go out to to the family of TBI Special Agent De’Greaun Frazier who was killed in the line of duty. We are glad that the suspect has been captured and look forward to justice being served. We pray for his family's healing and strength during this difficult time.

RT @Franklin_Graham: Can you imagine the impact it would have of we had Christian men & women as mayors, city council members, school board…
