YHC closed with a story from the book “Stillness is the Key” by Ryan Holiday.  Encouraged PAX to look for gratitude and be positive leaders of their family, work and community.

 

Joseph Heller, an important and funny writer now dead, and Kurt Vonnegut were at a party given by a billionaire on Shelter Island.

 

During the party, Vonnegut said, “Joe, how does it make you feel to know that our host only yesterday may have made more money than your novel ‘Catch-22’ has earned in its entire history?”

And Joe said, “I’ve got something he can never have.” And Vonnegut said, ” What on earth could that be, Joe?”   And Joe said, “The knowledge that I’ve got enough.”  Not bad! Rest in peace Mr. Heller!

 

Prayers for Zamboni’s family with loss of his Father in Law, Wasted’s family with loss of his Grandmother, Gizzard’s son Ethan recovering from a golf cart accident, healthcare workers on the front lines!
