What do these seemingly disparate subjects have in common?

Computers, Sex, and Nuclear Energy, each has the power to create, each has the power to destroy. Joe Hamilton –Peakaboomer, January 2012

Wow! Pretty heavy no? Fear not, I won’t bore you with a verbose philosophical, moral, spiritual, political rant. If you’re asking why in the name of peak performance I would come to make such a statement, the answer is simple. At least in my wandering, ADD riddled brain. My intention this morning (Tuesday, January 10, 2012) was to CREATE an informative and motivating post with a video about a recent service project my family and I went on in Mexico. Alas my computer had a different plan! It (my computer) hasn’t necessarily DESTROYED  my plans but you may see this post and video later today… or maybe even Wednesday the 11th, as I sit here writing this I’m honestly not sure yet!

On a serious note, I’m curious what your thoughts are on my quote, please do comment! When I said this I was thinking in serious terms:

COMPUTERS can create a myriad of opportunities in education, employment and more, or it can destroy via gambling, pornography and other all too popular websites.

SEX can create a temple (body) for a new spirit sent to a family from Heaven itself, or it can destroy the same family if conducted outside of marital bonds.

NUCLEAR ENERGY can create power for the use of entire cities, or it can destroy the same cities if applied in the form of a weapon of mass destruction.

Well there you are. Hopefully we’ll go out and create all things positive, with the many tools God has given us in these modern times. If I’ve met my goal for today’s “creation” you should be able to watch a video (above) showing the boys and girls of Casa Hogar (literally; House Home) Buena Vida (Good Life) In La Mision, Baja California, Mexico. Linda (see about page under peakaboomer tittle) created this video from pictures she shot while we (Linda and I, Cameron, Cody, and A.J.) served there. The music is a great track, I won’t let go, from Rascal Flatts’ album, Nothing Like This. If the video is not here when you visit, don’t worry I won’t let the computer demons win! I WILL PERSIST, I WILL SUCCEED  Have a great day, night, week… (I still don’t know when my computer will let me post this!) Joe H

P.S. A special thanks to my friend Pete Greene for motivating me to volunteer and serve! And to Linda for finding A Child’s Hope Foundation, a great organization with whom to volunteer and serve.
