    Some People Talk The Talk, But Don't Walk The Walk

    I Dare You To Be A Man Of Your Word

    I know of many people who talk a lot and have very little follow-thru. It’s very disheartening. A man is only as good as his word? There seems to be a lot of empty words out there…what does that say about people these days? No one believes in obligation, they are all simple...
