I am proud of my background and how gracious life has been to me. I could have done things better if I had been a bit more agressive at times. Yet, I would have not regrets if God would say, "Washington, you will have to live your life over again the same way." I would say, "okay Master, just let me start off with the wisdom you have allowed me to gain over my seventy years. I will be the third man you will have to brag on, the first two being Job and Jesus Christ." The message I desire to share with my friends who might read this book, is that life for me has been a wonderful journey. The most exciting thing God could have done for me was to create me to be a human being. Human beings are creatures of choice and I like that: 1. My choosing to be the best does not reduce a single person less than they were befoe. 2.My choice to accept Jesus Christ as my Savior to become a Christian, assures my place in the presence of God in the life to come. 3. My choice of my wife Christine of 50 years is the best thing to ever happen to me in this life. She is the mother of all of my children: Mikoyan, Micheala, MaliVai, Masanja, Mashiska and Mashona. I am pround of them individually and collectively. They are an extension of me. I am well pleased with them.
