The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is
protected from the storm and hidden from the sun.
It’s the one that stands in the open where it is
compelled to struggle for existence
against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.

I hope you are well-rested from a relaxing Labor Day weekend, and I
hope even more that you are ready to tackle some good work! As some
of you prepare to begin your fall semester of classes, others of us
have moved from summer mode into more serious work mode. This is a
great time of year to commit your time and energy to a worthwhile
task. Take some time this week to ponder your goals, choose a
specific objective to concentrate on, and then jump right in and GO!
