  • That annoying buzzing in your ear? I hate it. It’s the sound of the deadliest animal on the planet: the mosquito. I hate them, too.

    To most Americans, it’s merely a nuisance; to about two million people worldwide and untold millions of dogs, cats and other animals, that sound can be a harbinger of disease and death. We’re not talking about the death of a few 1800s Amazonian explorers; we’re talking nearly 440 million deaths worldwide each year. All by a critter not much bigger than a grain of rice.

    Live Life Fully

    My heart is so full.

    I’ve had the opportunity to reflect on my life over the past several weeks as I prepared to be inducted into the West Virginia Business Hall of Fame.

    I’m deeply honored by this recognition. And it was hard to condense my thoughts into a brief acceptance speech.

    What came up for me was extreme gratitude for all the people in my life — and the events along the way that seemed like random loose threads, yet were woven into a rich tapestry.

    Imagine, if you will, you wanted to experience the wonders of time travel. You have been reading about the writers of our constitution and decided you really would like to experience life in their history-making environment.

    Or, suppose you have been dreaming about a future where technology has advanced to the point where cell phones are a part of ancient history, and you wanted to enjoy all those wonderful benefits available at that time.

    There are two documents of paramount importance to American history: the Declaration of Independence, which forged our national identity, and the United States Constitution, which set forth the framework for the federal government that is still in use today.
