Today my mind is remembering Zufus, Sequoia Ranger, David Emerson, Raddad, and countless other eluding my testosterone starved brain. I Wonder. Why? Surely God as I understand him does not favor one over another.
I have persevered in my fight against the beast. The fight goes on. For now there is peace. The beast is quiet. Again!!! Why?
What is it that allows one to do well and another to fall? The answer eludes me.
Last night I spent an hour on the phone with a pharmaceutical company discussing a new patient resource kit I was reviewing g for them. It was a well thought out kit. I was impressed. My feedback was easy. Put a message of hope on the box and omit the clinical trial data showing a 4.2 month increase in overall survival. Quite frankly, 4.2 months is nothing.
I firmly believe our greatest weapons in our fight is hope and faith. Some men see 4.2 months median survival and see the glass half full. They see it as it should be seen. Others see the same numbers and it is affirmation of their demise. We need to have hope. We need to believe that we can defeat the beast.
I miss my friends.
