This Month’s Featured Article: Take the Key Away From the Guard “You are what you are and where you are because of what has gone into your mind, and you can change what you are and where you are by changing what goes into your mind.” Zig Ziglar What goes around comes around, Divine Intervention, Karma, Fate—people have been naming forces behind the paths that we take for millennia.
