I was 19 when my cousin came to live with my family. He was just out of the Marines. He was not doing very well and was lost in many ways.
clearly remember Captain Picard from "Star Trek: The Next Generation" looking at a contraption on a wall and saying, "Tea, Earl Grey, hot."
I will be showing my age and possibly run the risk of losing many Generation X and millennial readers when I use this example, but sometimes when I feel at the end of my rope, or look around at the state of the world or even look at how my day-to-day life can seem out of control, I often think of a 1970s television show called "Hee Haw."
