A tiger goes down the mountain

Why does a tiger go down the mountain? Because it wants to.

The concept of winning is currently in a sad state in the world. It seems everybody wants to be right. People try to enrich themselves despite the expense of so many. Nobody is open to anything, not even an inch. They say it's a sign of weakness. They say others would take advantage of them if they give in.

However, winning isn't just about being right. Winning isn't about beating the competition. Winning is being a net positive in the world, an accomplishment that moves humanity forward, even if it were only an inch.

In other words, winning is about upholding decency and eliminating regret. Let your conscience be an indicator. I don't want to be petty, dishonest, or groveling. I don't want unhappy faces. Instead, I want to accomplish something that cannot be counted or measured. I want to promote peace and love daily within me and with those around me.

Ultimately everything in the world is ephemeral. People cling on to what they believe is valuable, but like in the past and it'll be the case in the future, it is merely leased, rented, temporary.

While we are here, it might be a good idea to take care of one another to the best of our ability. Everything else seems secondary, perhaps trivial.

Therefore, geniuses of love go to places where they want to go. Their actions are free of doubt, their gains immeasurable.

Glory in war is a myth

Homer's The Iliad and Odyssey tell of grand and exciting battles in all their glory. Of course both works are part of Greek mythology. They are myths in more ways than one.

It is also a myth that military personnel and veterans love war. Those who have experienced war and its horrific effects firsthand rarely want more of it.

Then who are the ones clamoring for more war? They are inevitably those who are profiting from it and aren't fighting it. Some people call them warhawks. I call them chickenhawks. Chickenhawk is a much better description since they are comfortable with sending other people's children to die for political gain. They are often the same people who talk a lot about family values. They are failures in diplomacy and strategy.

The only place you will ever find glory in war is in a work of fiction. And it is fiction that politicians and their ilk sell the idea of war. Don't believe it! I understand war. Having been born in Vietnam, I've been affected…

How much does it cost to send 2654 migrant children to Disney World?

Migrant children being separated from their parents on the Mexican border breaks my heart. They didn't break any laws. They are kids. As a child immigrant myself in 1980, I simply can't imagine being without my mom during that time. It would have been an extremely traumatic experience.

So what should we do with these precious 2654 migrant children?

Why take them to Disney World of course!

Crazy, right? I heard my friends say right away: "It costs money, Thomas!"

They're right. In fact, I even changed my mind about the concept of money I discussed just a few days ago. Money can absolutely be beneficial here. But before I go through the financial figures, let's talk briefly about intangible benefits.

When I first arrived in America, everyone was so nice and welcoming. When I say everyone, I meant everyone. I want the same for all migrant children. What says "Welcome to America!" more than taking them to Disney World?

While they wait to be reunited wi…

Man among men

True love is to highlight the good in others and downplay the bad parts. It's not you don't see the bad parts. It's just you want to point out and build upon the good parts.

Babe Ruth struck out a lot. But that's not what he was good at and famous for.

What an extraordinary sight yesterday when I witnessed a man so comfortable with himself that in the midst of criticisms lobbed at him that he still pointed out the good things about his critics. He's a man among men. ☮❤
