Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
-- Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 5
NBC's Mark Potter talks with two
passengers who are very happy to be back on land after their experience on board the disabled Carnival cruise ship. These young ladies, Brittney and Kendall, were very succinct and interesting in their telling of the nightmare experience and expressed their joy of being back on land. The most striking thing about the interview was the ending when one of the girls mentioned the fact that they did better than a lot of the passengers because they had hope and had started their trip with a verse from Joshua 1:9 At that point the newsman brought the interview to an abrupt halt.
As the girls walked away the one said "Joshua 1-9 Look it up." and so I did.
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
