I’ve Had Enough
I don’t know about you, but I’m overloaded with bad news. I’ve had enough. I’m ready for this mess to be over. AIG executives spent $400,000 on a spa trip? WTF? I need a spa trip.

So what do we do? We follow the ones who came before us. These amazing minds were at the forefront of their fields. Three of them were trailblazers in the midst of World War. Marie Curie was a woman in a man’s world.

George S. Patton served in World War I as a senior commander of the new tank corps; and again in World War II as a leading US General.
Anna Freud and her family fled Austria because of Nazi harassment. She used the war to study the effects of deprivation of parental care on children and made major contributions to psychoanalysis.
Churchill was the leader of the United Kingdom during World War II. He served as Prime Minister of the UK, was noted statesman, an officer in the British Army, a historian, a Nobel Prize-winning writer.
In 1903 Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the first person to have ever won two Nobel Prizes.
Remember, clouds in the sky come and go but they never stay.
