As I was looking through it, however, I noticed something. Far outnumbering the pictures of me, my...

If you're doing something because you're imagining what people will think when they see you doing it, you're not doing it for the right reason. It's the things you do, even though you might get made fun of by those you fear seeing you do it, that define your true passions. Pursue the things that scare you even though you might "embarrass" yourself. The...

He was the father of five,...
