Show and Tell


This morning I feel like telling some other people's stories, or letting them tell us themselves.

Ernest Gagnon-

If you haven't heard about Ernest Gagnon yet, it is just a matter of time. For the record, I wouldn't race cyclocross if my life depended on it, or maybe I would?

And then there is this girl, Malala Yousufzai-- 14 year-old blogger from the Swat Valley in Pakistan. She was shot in the head by the Taliban for writing about how much she liked school and bright-colored clothing. Two other little girls were also shot in the attack.



Two people telling their stories, both fighting for their lives.

This blog thing is potent.

Earnest is inspiring. Also proof that not all bike racers are elitist assholes.

Once he becomes a threat they will turn on him like a pack of dingos.

Saw both of these within the past day or so, both inspiring: be better now and look toward the future with purpose.
