Today I ask you Lord, on this day of prayer that I would be strengthened in my faith and be made more fearless of my belief that You have created all things and that you have sent your son Jesus who is the word that was therein the beginning which was God and was with God. Father Lord strengthen us here and make us prayer warriors and give us the mind to preach your word. And for those who would hear the word, reveal to them the truth.

Yah Man crack the red stripes. Not really. Long journey and noone thought it possible. He was actually wrong and had it not been for the Carribean Islands he surely would be lost at sea. He went on to become very poor and not so famous dying in Spain in poverty at age 55.
Happy Colmbus Day

Sleets grew up in Campbellsburg, KY and starred on the basketball team at Eminence High School. When he was young, his father, Lamont Sleets, Sr. would frequently entertain visits from his old army buddies. Sleets Sr. served in Vietnam, in the 1st Battalion, 5th Infantry regiment. "It was the Bobcat division," Mont said, "but my dad and his friends always called it 'The Five.'" Sleets Sr. and his army friends started an informal greeting between them while serving in Vietnam. It consisted of extending their arm straight up in the air with all five fingers parted and saying the name of their division: "Five." Sleets thinks that when he was around 2 or three years old, it was only natural to want to emulate the old army men that gathered in his house. Since it was tough for a youngster to keep track of all the different names of the visitors, the saying of "Five" became young Mont Sleets' universal salutation for his fathers friends. Sleets recalls the story with the weariness of anybody recounting the family stories they heard over and over while growing up, but not without telltale signs of enthusiasm throughout: "They'd walk in the door, and a three year old kid, he doesn't know the difference between all these grown-ups. But they're all sayin' 'Five' with their hand up like this, so I just start saying to them, 'Hi, Five!' like it was their name."
Sleets Sr. and his friends found Mont's desire to emulate them charming and would often kneel down on the ground so little Mont could return the salutation to them as well. Mont would hold his hand up and say "Hi Five!" back. "And when you're a little kid, you're curious," said Sleets. "You see all these old veterans, and their hands are so much bigger than yours, and you want to put your hand up and compare it to them." From there, the gesture simply evolved over time. As Mont got older, he of course learned the proper names of his father's visitors. But his childhood greeting of a hand held high and a "Hi, Five!" had stuck. Though he stopped wanting to compare hands with his dad's friends, teenage Mont remained willing to give their hands a quick tap with his own.

Alopecia areata (AA) is a condition affecting humans, in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from the scalp. Because it causes bald spots on the scalp, especially in the first stages, it is sometimes called spot baldness. In 1%–2% of cases, the condition can spread to the entire scalp (Alopecia totalis) or to the entire epidermis (Alopecia universalis). Conditions resembling AA, and having a similar cause, occur also in other species.
