Great, continued from Page 1

A deathly silence descends as the soldier fearfully ponders the coming hours. How would his day end? How did
he come to be here? He thinks on the abstract chain of days and events that led him to this terrifying moment.
Next he turns his attention to his lover and pens a few words, “My dearly beloved, I hear the sound of death
and battle all around me and know that my turn is coming soon. If I die today, know that I always loved you.”
Soldiers exchange these notes one with another with the words, “If I die at your side today brother and you
should live, please deliver this letter to my lover.”
This soldier‟s future has become shaped by the current moment and the circumstance he now faces. His mind
has fallen into the grip of the fear and death that surrounds him. For this soldier, his future life now rests in the
hands of fate.
On a hill not far off from the soldier stands the warrior. His posture is tall and proud, his arms confidently folded
on his chest. He is unmoved by the external atmosphere of fear that surrounds him. The sound of screams of
death and battle only serves to strengthen his inner resolve. He has clothed his mind and heart with impregna-
ble armor plating. He has no thoughts of past circumstances or estranged lovers. Instead his mind is fixed on
one thing, and one thing only. His PURPOSE!
Why is he here? What is today‟s objective? He has no space for fear. His mind pays no attention to the battle of
this day. Rather, he is fully focused and persuaded in his sole purpose; the victory and successful conclusion of
his war. “Today is not my day to die,” he shouts as he takes up his arms and storms out to do his day‟s work.
I had stumbled on the one word that made all the lives of the great people I studied make sense. At last I was
able to answer my Grandfather‟s question that had burned within for all these years. Regardless of whether
they were Warriors, Kings or Queens, Presidents, Inventors, Business Barbarians, Entrepreneurs or Tribe Lead-
ers; regardless of their vast differences as people, events and circumstances, they all shared one common thing
- PURPOSE.
By stumbling upon and then studying this one word, I was better able to understand my own life. I was able to
better define who I was, and why I was here - my own Life Purpose. It is Purpose alone that makes the great,
great.

Philip Judge, President

Debt, continued from Page 2

In today‟s world we have become desensitized to particular terms and their true meanings as pointed out above.
So here's another thing to think on and consider when you hear the words Trillion Dollars. Chuck Missler made
this comparison many years ago, and it has stuck in my mind ever since. How about comparing dollars with
time as seconds? One million seconds equate to approximately 11.5 days; one billion seconds equate to 32
years; and one trillion seconds equate to 32,000 years!
Two questions for you to ponder:
1) Can the debt ever be paid back?
2) Was paying the debt back ever an objective from the beginning?
Until next time,
Simon Heapes
