Read by the author.
Recounts tales from the author's life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship with determination, compassion, honor, and courage.
A simple act with powerful consequences. To rise in the morning and complete the first task of the day will give one motivation to do more; to accomplish more. The bed also represents the person. Few things in the home are more personal. Making the bed is a reflection of one's discipline, one's pride and one's personal habits.
