Recently, I was lifted to new levels of inspiration by the story of Louis Zamperini in Unbroken, a film about a WWII veteran who survived being tortured in a Japanese POW camp, and also by the unbelievable response from the people in Paris, France to the horror, outrage, and despair surrounding the brutal attack at the offices of Charlie Hebdo, when thousands of people gathered in defiance of and solidarity against this horrible act.

Awhile ago I was talking to my son as he was recapping the latest on his house-remodeling project. I’d been hearing about the ups and downs of remodeling the kitchen and bathroom – important high-traffic areas – and after months of disruption a date had finally been set for the cabinet installation.
