I only have this to say,: "If you hate anything, it means you envy something. If you like everything, it means you attract all things."

Mahalo for your great work!

Thirteen years ago we formed a non-profit organization that would allow dogs to run freely on a one mile beach. We fought the Coastal Commission the City Council, and through PERSISTENCE 250,000 dogs and their families visit 'dog' beach each year and Huntington Beach, CA has just been awarded "Most Dog Friendly City in the USA." www.dogbeach.org martin@dogbeach.org
