An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy.

"It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil—he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good—he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you—and inside every other person, too."

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?"

The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

Upper Marlboro seeks input on historic school’s fate - Washington Business Journal

"Prince George’s County officials say they are undecided on whether to demolish a historic building in Upper Marlboro to build a Family Justice Center, despite the town commissioners’ unanimous vote last week to request a review of the plans and seek greater input on related decisions going forward, The Gazette reports.
County officials are considering razing the Old Marlboro Elementary School, an amalgam of two school buildings built in 1891 and 1921, which includes the grave of Revolutionary War and War of 1812 doctor William Beanes, but town officials would like to see the building preserved or restored so it can be used." -  Washington Business Journal Date: Friday, December 23, 2011, 10:52am EST
