D-Day on My B-Day
Iâ€™ll always remember that morning when my mom woke me up early on June 6, 1944 and showed me the headlines in the San Diego Union newspaper:Â â€śD-Dayâ€¦..Allies Land on Normandy Beach.â€ť She smiled and said â€śwhat nicer birthday present could a boy ever get?â€ť She was right, of course.
The beginning of the end of the deadliest war in history was a precious present that is forever etched in my memory. I saved that newspaper and glance at it often to remind me to live by â€śinclusion,â€ť rather than by â€śexclusion.â€ť
Today is a memorable day for another reason, not because itâ€™s my birthday, but because D-Day has a new significance as the day when Denis finally went Digital and Downloadable in his profession. For much too long www.waitley.com has stubbornly held on to the dinosaur age of hardcover books, CD and DVD albums and printed, packaged programs.
I guess I would prefer a last name of â€śSwiftlyâ€ť instead of â€śWaitley,â€ť since I waited until the e-book and I-pad revolution was well underway before seriously picking up speed myself on the information superhighway.
Iâ€™ll always be grateful for the creative persistence of my colleague, webmaster & marketing guru, Andy Broadaway, who lit the torch and led me out of the forest into the digital age.
In the days, weeks and months to come, I hope youâ€™ll visit often and share your own dreams, desires and experiences so we can all win the game of life together.
The new www.waitley.com is just the beginning of an exciting dimension in our stewardship and we look forward to upgrading and improving every day based on the feedback we receive from friends like you.
And always remember, â€śWinners believe in their dreams, when thatâ€™s all they have to hang on to!â€ť
