The following is the philosophy of Charles Schultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" comic strip. You don't have to actually answer the questions. Just read the e-mail straight through,and you'll get the point. 1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world. 2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners. 3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America Contest. 4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize. 5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress. 6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do? The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. They are not second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
List a few teachers who aided your journey through school. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
Easier? The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are NOT the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones who care.
Share this with those who have made a difference in your life. I just did! "Don't worry about the world coming to an end today. It's already tomorrow in Australia." (Charles Schultz)

Koimaster, You are quite correct - this is post is completely off topic here in the General Forum. It's a nice, thought provoking post. But it is not appropriate for the General Forum and should not have been posted here. The primary reason your posting rights in the Community Forum were suspended is because you repeatedly violated our rules, and continued to post topics with the intent of irritating others and creating conflict. WTF is all about connecting with people with similar interests in a respectful, enjoyable way. The purpose isn't to continually rub people the wrong way as you seem to enjoy doing, either directly or indirectly. You were repeatedly and politely reminded of our rules, and asked to make more of an effort to avoid those topics in the CF which you seem unable to discuss without creating irritation and conflict. You continued to disregard those requests, so our only option was to restrict you to watch related discussions (your contributions in this area are valued and appreciated by many, including myself) by banning you from the Community Forum. The BEST way you restore your access to the Community Forum is demonstrate that you've learned your lesson and start respecting the rules here at WTF. Posting off-topic content here in the General Forum because you can't do so in the Community Forum only demonstates that you've not learned this lesson. Thead closed.
