By Mark Azzara
My shortest letter ever. The next time you feel sorry for yourself, the next time you think you can’t do something, the next time you want to quit, the next time you think the deck is stacked against you, the next time you … well, you get the idea … watch this video. And then get back to work.
All God’s blessings – Mark
