Who and What is the Happy Warrior

Oh, there was kicking and screaming (not unlike some government workers and school employees in Wisconsin) but the end results were fantastic. Some call this a "reality check" others call it a "come to Jesus meeting". Several years later there is very little trace of a spoiled, entitlment driven, ungreatful character in our Angel #1. She is well on her way to being a very beautiful (speaking mainly of those internal characteristics) young lady.
This story is a way for me to introduce a pictoral I stumbled across on MSN.com. It is a visual tour through the bedrooms of about 20 young people. Obviously there is much to be learned since a picture is worth a thousand words. I am definitely going to spend some time viewing, learning and discussing these pictures with my children. We live at the apex of human civilization. We have more material needs that any society deserves and yet there are children around the world who live in desperate circumstances... My little angels need to have a larger view of life and need to understand the greater context in which they live. I, for that matter, would do better to remember this.
