On April the 21st 1836, when Sam Houston led my ancestor Henry Brewer onto the battlefield of San Jacinto, they charged into the Mexican Army with the battle cry of "Remember the Alamo, remember Goliad!”
The study of history, for me, is the study of people. Some of the people you study, are more caricatures of saints or of devils, depending on what small time, or epic act history records of them. It may not be fair, but it is the way it is.
Back in 2009 in Marbella, Spain, a group of burglar punks broke into a mansion in a very ritzy neighborhood behind a gated community. After beginning to ransack everything they found the Mama of the house hiding and terrified. She tried to get away from them but they caught her, tied her up and began taunting her like punks that break into houses do. Things were excavating from really bad to extremely bad when all of the sudden, they dropped everything and ran for their lives.

So I have been doing a little bit of traveling. According to American Airlines, I have traveled more than 35,000 miles in the past 2 months. That's a big deal for a kid from Joshua, Texas. In the past ten weeks alone, I have done conferences, preached in churches and organized outreaches in India, Dubai, Costa Rica, Columbia, Peru, Brazil, Miami, Seattle, Palm Springs and Portland. To tell you the truth, I have not been up to current events as far as World News goes.
