Thanksgiving Day: Last night our family went to a drop-in center for the homeless in Cleveland. While there, I met with Carl Cook who is the director of Project Save. It is an agency made up of former homeless people who now help those on the streets of Cleveland. Cook was homeless. He now directs the program, regularly speaks in schools and helps with a youth mentoring group. As I talked with him last night, I couldn’t help but think of the mythology of the phoenix: “Out of the ashes…” ‘Ohiocana’: A friend of mine, Paul Kapczuk, ran in Cleveland’s 25th annual, five-mile Turkey Trot. The numbers of his finishing time weren’t of particular note to Paul, however his race number was: 1620. The year, he pointed out, that the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. “Of all the numbers to get this day…,” Paul smiled.
