(NAPSI)—Sergeant First Class Michael D. Smith’s severe injuries sustained in a 2011 hit-and-run accident ultimately led to the loss of his right arm, but his optimism never wavered. Recovering at the Warrior Transition Battalion (WTB) at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, Smith worked toward one goal: remain in the Army for 20 years. Three years later, Smith became the first above-the-elbow amputee to return to active duty.

Let me tell you about Larry. I met Larry in 2009 when I was researching a column about WWII veterans. He looked for all the world like the eight-plus decades of life he had experienced. But, there was a twinkle in his eyes. Even though his body bent under the pressure of his years and his toils, he was a man with a mission. I will share with you as he shared with me.

It’s time for a little honesty/reality check. In the four and a half months or so that I have been doing this challenge, I have lost about 18 pounds and close to 6% body fat, which I am very happy about. But, I guess I had been hoping, and so had my trainer, that the numbers would have been bigger by now.

The White House keeps calling for “shared sacrifice.” When the
administration demands the rich “sacrifice” more through increased
taxes, it ignores the fact that the rich and middle class are
paying the highest amount of total taxes in the history of our
nation. The top 50 percent of tax filers pay 97 percent of all
federal income taxes.

We all have our own memories of Stephanie Elizabeth Anderson
Larson Sellers. When Stephanie asked me to speak at her memorial
service, which ultimately took place last weekend, I was honored by
the request but taken aback – why me, I asked? She said, “Because
you and I have grown up together, had our kids, shared families,
helped with our business and been a friend. I trust you.”

Shelly Berg plays the jazz piano as if riding a horse in a
competitive race, bobbing up and down on the bench like a jockey,
his feet constantly tapping and moving, his torso sometimes hunched
as if performing needlework in poor light, other times his head
back and rocking as if on the downhill of a rollercoaster, as if in
a trance, pulling every last note from the instrument.
