Congrats to the U.S. Women’s National Soccer team on their big win yesterday in the 2015 Women’s World Cup Championship!!!!!!!!!!! This is the 3rd World Cup championship for the USA (and the first since 1999). They were a fun team to watch.
I’ve got a new book you have to read. It’s not really “new”… in fact, a movie has already been made about it (I haven’t seen the movie, so I’m not sure how close it is to the book)… anyway, you’ve got to read Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. This is one of those books that lets you know that whatever “bad day” you think you’re having isn’t nearly as close to being as bad as it could be. It’s an amazing book.
