CMerritt, I have to agree with you about being a Dad. My two boys joined the Canadian military with me and it fills me with pride and joy to see them succeed. Now I get to play Grandad and see the next generation go on.
Mr. Happy, like you I live in Canada but I have served overseas in areas of turmoil where ordinary people do not have a voice. Learning and growing in wisdom is also very important to me so that I can contribute significantly in this world.
