Give Kids The World?

We're Going To Disney World!
We're Going To Disney World!

Traveling recently in Delta Airline’s first class cabin, there was an empty (very rare) seat next to me and behind me. Cabin door is closed. Cool, extra room, I thought.

Next thing you know, the guy behind me comes up and takes the empty seat next to me, leaving his row empty.

My surprised look prompted his explanation, “There’s a Give Kids The World Child and her Mother that are being upgraded”.

Our plane is headed to Orlando, with all the world-class theme parks. What should I do? What would you do?

Letters To God, The Movie

Ever stumble upon something exciting, cool, meaningful?

How does that make you feel? Does it feel like a gift? It might. It really depends on the whole picture.

But what if you can’t see the whole picture? Then what? Does that mean what happened wasn’t meaningful?

On a routine Delta flight yesterday, I met Kim Dawson. We both said, “You look familiar.”

Turns out we attend the same Mass at the same church. Turns out we’re both headed to Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Me, to give a speech that may help change the world.

Kim, to watch a movie that may help change the world.

And one more thing, Kim is the Producer of the movie.

His movie debuts nationwide in two days. He said, “Would you like to come watch it tonight?”

So I wrote a “letter to God”:

“Dear God, thank you for placing this opportunity in front of me. Life on the road is challenging enough, but without proper rest, it becomes even more challenging. May I please do this later?”

My letter to God pales in comparison to the young, cancer-stricken boy who writes Letters to God and the Mailman who has to figure out what to do with them.
