Are you a PIG or a CHICKEN?

“Are you a pig, or are you a chicken?” It was a curious question, for sure. What was once a simple training session had now become a serious discussion on life, and like most of life’s questions, we had no idea of the correct response… As if our blank stares weren’t enough to tell we didn’t have a clue how to respond, again, we were asked, “Are you a pig, or are you a...
