April 24

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "It's Alright" by Ray Charles; "I'm Alright" (theme from "Caddyshack") by Kenny Loggins; The Kids Are Alright" by The Who]

Consider the following quote, and write about how it applies to any of the great protagonists you've studied this year, including (and most especially) yourself:

"It is not the critic who counts, nor the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes up short again and again; who knows great enthusiasms, great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows in the end triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." -Teddy Roosevelt
