“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows achievement and who at the worst if he fails at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” ~Pres. Theodore Roosevelt, 1910. Posted June 10, 2007

    Lorraine, you will be greatly missed on the front lines of the campaign, but your extraordinary efforts will reap continued successes for the Senator and I appreciate the opportunity of working with you and having you carry a large part of the load for our efforts here in Utah. God speed to you and all our troops. Our family prays for protection of our troops every day. I am inspired by your committment and service and wish you all the best. In your absence we will get our guy elected and you can be sure of a commander in chief who cares more for the troops than any thing else in the world.

    Best wishes, Tim
