GNH - Gross National Happiness, --Very nice.

I have often lamented the damage done to our national psyche by our governmental gridlock. I am an independent but I really cringed when seeing our leader essentially suborning class warfare with statements about "taking down the rich" --and how they are "hoarders of ill-gotten gains." Whatever truth you may ascribe to that, --making it a publicly declared policy is irresponsible and hugely destructive to our national psyche. We may never recover the innocence of dreaming to succeed.

Sorry for the political side bar.

The dream is still alive. Just don't confuse it with reality.

Awesome article. 43 starters, 22 finishers.

Playing football looks fun too.

One of the finishers from this year's event.
