Over the next few days I will be competing in and finishing up two really good debates. If you guys can follow them and keep up with them it would be awesome.

Drawing Debate - This has got a whole lot of hits , likes, and comments. I love the idea and glad my fiance proposed it. Worth taking a look at.

Roy Vs Myself (The United States should have a death penalty) - This is the debate everyone has been wanting to see and we finally got it started

I'm already following those two debates. Here is an encouraging poem:

It Couldn't Be Done
by Edgar A. Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done,
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that;
At least no one ever has done it";
But he took off his coat and he took off his hat,
And the first thing we knew he'd begun it.
With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin,
Without any doubting or quiddit,
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done,
There are thousands to prophesy failure;
There are thousands to point out to you one by one,
The dangers that wait to assail you.
But just buckle in with a bit of a grin,
Just take off your coat and go to it;
Just start to sing as you tackle the thing
That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.
