    What Have YOU Done?

    This might sound ominous and accusatory (no, YOU did it! ), but it's actually a serious topic. I just finished a two-week run of the play Our Town, where I played undertaker Joe Stoddard, as well as signing in the choir (and I have a terrible voice, but it's amazing what a group of people can do to drown out those who stink) and in the wedding scene. It's one of the best experiences I've ever had, even with 2 prior months of rehearsals. It made me wonder, what are the accomplishments you've made in your lives? And any time to make lists is a good time!

    BEL-CAM'S TOP TEN (OR SO) ACCOMPLISHMENTS (in no particular order):
    1. 3-month driving trip (16,000+ miles) across southern part of U.S.
    2. winning Employee of the Year in '95.
    3. Our Town play
    4. attending summer Writing Project seminars ('03, '05)
    5. attending speech by Desmond Tutu at college
    6. getting my BA degree in Social Studies and Teaching Credential
    7. coaching my youth basketball team to the '95 league championship
    8. running a 4:32 1500 meter (4:52 equivalent mile) race
    9. ?
    10. ??

    1 (TIE) Have maintained a happy and healthy marriage for over 11 years.
    1 (TIE) Have fathered and am helping raise 2 healthy, beautiful children.

    - Have instructed nearly 200 children in drug awareness and ways to avoid other risky behaviours, only one of which I've encountered later in a negative way.

    - Chased a bank robber on foot for 6 blocks, arrested him and recovered $800 from his person (he also confessed on the way back to the office).

    - Have wrested a knife away from a suicidal female, possibly saving her life.

    - Have been involved in the seizures of over $1,000,000 worth of illicit drugs.

    - Have assisted a number of prostitutes get spots in detox and rehab centers which has actually helped a few of them get off the street.

    - Have shot a perfect pistol score on qualification day (meaningless to lots of people, but I put a lot of pressure on myself to attain this goal so it's satisfying to me).

    - Have managed to stay a loyal Tigers fan even through the dark days of the past 19 years

    I'd say that this trumps, by far, any other accomplishment that is listed on this thread.
