You Are A Work In Progress

If you always feel like there is something missing in your life it’s because you are not complete, you are “a work in progress”.  Every day you learn new things, you become smarter, you become faster, you become more knowledgeable, you become more experienced, and so forth.  You are “a work in progress”.

John Cena is All-American as hamburgers, hot dogs, and hot apple pie

When it comes to patriotism, it doesn’t get any better than John Cena of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE).  John Cena is about as All-American as hamburgers, hot dogs, and hot apple pie.  He proves this day in and day out, but the most important way he shows this is through his undying support for the United States Armed Forces.  John Cena supports the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines in a big way and has done so on many occasions through trips to Iraq, Afghanistan, and the annual event WWE Support the Troops. This hits home for me because my name…
