Re: A really vague rumor mill...... Club closing...
Money is a good thing but it's how you use money that tells the real story of a person. The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.
I've made many millions of dollars in my life. I've gone broke more than once and made it more than once. So what? I could tell you the stories of the things I owned or the money I wasted but they would only serve to embarrass me. It's the stories of the people we've helped around the world that are the legacy I am actually proud of.
In 2005, we created and funded a center in Cambodia that takes little girls out of sexual slavery and gives them a place to live while they learn to read and write and to sew. When Rebecca died, the woman who runs the center called me and told me that, because of Rebecca's gift and vision, 457 girls had been taken out of the sex trade so far and were now fully employed, educated and living productive lives. That's a legacy to be proud of.
Of course, SobeQueen thinks she's impressing us with her lies of wealth and world travel. Well, I'm not impressed because I know they're lies. However, even if they were true, I still wouldn't be impressed because I've done that as well and have traveled more of the globe than she ever will. The difference is that we left behind a better life for the people we met along the way. All she did was blow whatever rich guy was paying the bills.
