"All men are timid on entering any fight. Whether it is the first or the last fight, all of us are timid. Cowards are those who let their timidity get the better of their manhood."
- General George Patton Jr, "War as I knew it" 1947
The semester is coming to a close. This is the time I question my decision to return to school. Not wholly question it, but mull it over. It is most like working in January, when the snow fall is heavy and no excitement is in the air. It is so much work and the outcome is intangible, seemingly nonexistent. The topics at hand have been tirelessly reviewed and the desire for change runs deep. In times like these pressing on is most important.
