Agree.In other words,don't put off until tomorrow what you could do today."Procrastionation is the key because it is your enemy.Now do you think you can tell me What Are You Waiting For.What Are You Waiting For"?

Eleanor is a little wordy here, she could have just said "seize the moment". Isn't that what the young Mr. Obama is saying "our moment (he means his moment) is now".

And in the case of a free America the time will come where the option to decide will no longer be an option. This is the beginning of slavery.

Yes, always say sorry or apologize as soon as possible because the longer you leave it the less likely you are to act and therefore provide a loss of integrity - yes, carpe diem or Just do it!

Eleanor is our former "worst woman" who said: "We must get used to wars that we don't intend to win." As the wars drag on, I keep recalling those words that I heard her utter.

To Robert, yes we must be as quick at settling differences as we are at putting out a house fire. Man is at the point of his evolution that we do not need termoil to force us to advance. Man is at the stage where peace, love and respect produce greater fruit. PEACE PROFOUND
