The Professional Award is the highest recognition given by the Association for Communication Excellence to one of its members.
I want to end the suspense right now. I did not win this morning’s Joe Marks Fun Run. Wouldn’t that have been something? The ACE Professional Award and the 2018 Joe Marks Fun Run Champion?
Sometimes things don't go, after all,
from bad to worse. Some years, muscadel
faces down frost; green thrives; the crops don't fail.
Sometimes a man aims high, and all goes well.
A people sometimes will step back from war,
elect an honest man, decide they care
enough, that they can't leave some stranger poor.
Some men become what they were born for.
Sometimes our best intentions do not go
amiss; sometimes we do as we meant to.
The sun will sometimes melt a field of sorrow
that seemed hard frozen; may it happen for you.
