  2. Roger Meyer

When my wife and I get up to have our morning coffee, we often say, “Shall we turn on the news and see what ‘blew up’ last night?” We wonder: What disaster, murders, shootings, riots, robberies, accidents, fires, pandemic deaths, political bickering, legislative logjams, scandals, bankruptcies, lawsuits, debt increases, or other negative things happened since...

Nothing Is Too Hard

  2. Roger Meyer

The very young often encounter things that are too hard for them. Within just a few years, however, a young person at the peak of his or her mental and physical capacities can feel that nothing is too hard—but all too quickly we learn of our limitations.
