Few of us had heard about Coronavirus two years ago. It turned this world upside-down. Hopefully you & your loved ones passed it safely and with the least hardship as possible.
Our aspirations are that we can return to some normalcy. And, say good bye to quarantines, disinfectants, masks, social distancing and myriad inconveniences and hardships. The above photo was taken in the author's dining room when he was channel surfing.
We can overcome this if we work together.

An ambience in real life for any gifted athlete is the hectic, competitors give it all they got even though people scream all over, and one has to make adjustments even when one starts at a young age but, the key is faith. One such athlete possessing faith with a capital F is named Sydney McLaughlin. After the US Track and Field Finals in Eugene this year, she stated, "The mental strain of preparing...in order to solidify your spot is heavy enough. But the amount of weight the Lord took off my shoulders, is the reason I could run so freely yesterday. My faith was being tested.... I just kept hearing God say, 'Just focus on me.'" You have to have faith in God, in yourself, and the gift God gave you. An unknown to many outside the world of track and field, this 4 mins show Penn Relay competition which is important on the East Coast circuit.
