  1. Another good talk from the one and only Gerard Adams.

    He's got my respect by not keeping all his money to himself even though he's rich, and for giving his life a purpose that includes The Greater Good.

  2. I was Yesterday at Fownders and yes That area is Pretty fire, but i agree 100% your enviroment does not dictate your outcome, and you are live proof of that, i wanted so bad to be at today Fire pit meet up at 6-8 pm, but cannot make it on time, i will be there there next Meet up, Thank you Gerard you inspired us to be better, to be great, love all you do, Keep it up!!!

  3. I have finished watching this video completely.
    (我看完這部影片了)

    I am a Taiwanese who cares about the global affairs.
    (我是一個關心全球事務的台灣人)

    And, sadly, most of my fellow Taiwanese don't really care about the world.
    (但是,很不幸地,我大部分的台灣同胞不那麼在意世界。)

    Hopefully Taiwan can become increasingly globally-aware and globally-competitive.
    (希望台灣可以越來越有全球意識與全球競爭力。)

    God bless Taiwan.
    (天佑台灣。)
