  1. Prof SEAN wrong … WOW! Whatever …. I’ve been thinking recently, and again, about the intro “Life is about how you re-act” – Even though that it 90% correct (maybe something like 10% is actually what you know) However, it’s the “HOPE” that sets the foundation that we can choose to base those re-actions on. The more … steadfast, firm, concert solid that our Hope is grounded gives us a GREAT foundation for those RE-ACTIONS. The 10% is truths that I …count on when in my week flesh temporarily forget the foundation of “HOPE”
