Subject: still standing saturday

the cowboys winning for right now. hope they will win but even if they lose...
can't let the results of a sports contest determine if today was/will be good or bad
no matter the results i'm gone enjoy these burritos I made and this orange soda pop and enjoy the rest of today

Question: what choices will you choose to make to continue to get through today in the most positive way for you?

mind you how we respond emotionally, financially, spiritually, physically... determines if today was/will be good or bad

Something to think about

Dear Antoine,

To answer your question about choices today; it will be that I am gracious for all that I have, forgiving & tolerant of others, kindness and gentleness towards all creatures, helpful, positive, happy, open, honest, generous with all that I have, and lastly to really give it another try at practicing all of the above when it comes to myself. Hang in there my fellow being and Cowboy fan. I live their city and have all of my life. PS. this site says that this platform is available to only 1% of those incarcerated. Why only 1%? Do you know? Thank you for the question as it did make me pause for thought. Lana

Hi Antoine and Lana,
I just have to add my two cents about this 1% question. On the site it is stated: "Between the Bars is a weblog platform for people in prison, through which the 1% of Americans who are in prison can tell their stories." To my reading it refers to the fact that roughly 1% of all US-Americans are incarcerated, and this blog serves this population.
If the site would serve 1% of all incarcerated people, as you read it Lana, it would serve to about 20.000 people. So in that sense, it rather serves 0,01%. And that is indeed, I guess, a question of capacity. I just had to get nerdy on you :) Have a good day, warm greetings, Julia
