The Prayer of Saint Francis
"O Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace!
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is discord, harmony;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light, and
Where there is sorrow, joy.
Oh Divine Master, grant that I may not
so much seek to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand; to be loved
as to love; for it is in giving that we receive;
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life."
i knew that i was dying.
something in me said, go ahead, die, sleep, become
then something else in me said, no, save the tiniest
it needn't be much, just a spark.
a spark can set a whole forest on
just a spark.
- Charles Bukowski
Henry David Thoreau refused to pay the poll tax put in to support the American-Mexican War, and was sentenced to a night in jail. His friend Ralph Waldo Emerson came to visit him and asked him "David, what are you doing in there?" Thoreau replied, "What are you doing out there?"
As a quick refresher, The UPS Store hosted the “Design Dale’s Ride” coloring contest and invited kids to design the special paint scheme for Dale Jarrett’s #88 The UPS Store/Toys for Tots Ford. Jarrett will race the winning design on Sunday, November 5, 2006, at Texas Motor Speedway to kick-off The UPS Store’s holiday season – and its Toys for Tots donation drive.
Twelve-year-old Annabelle Huffman from Napa, CA took the “championship cup” in the coloring contest. The contest winner was determined by online voting and a judging panel representing The UPS Store, UPS Racing and Dale Jarrett, Inc.
As part of her prize package, Annabelle received a trip to the Daytona International Speedway for the unveiling of the car, a custom-fit, autographed racing suit to match the one Dale will wear, and a Crayola® prize pack including Crayola Color Explosion™, Crayola Twistables™ and Crayola Erasable Markers, as well as a hometown viewing party to watch the car race on Nov. 5 at Texas Motor Speedway. Additionally, her school will receive 10,000 free copies from The UPS Store along with an art supplies package for the art department, courtesy of Crayola.
