Live Long (and Prosper)
On Jack Borden's 101st birthday, he awoke at 5 a.m., ate a hearty breakfast, and was at his law office by 6:30 ready to begin his day. When asked the secret to his long life, the practiced attorney smiled and quipped, "Not dying."
But, there's more to it than that. Mr. Borden, who was baptized at age 11 told a Fort Worth Star-Telegram reporter, "I'm a firm believer that God has a hand in everything that happens - letting me live for some reason. I try to do the things that I believe God wants me to do."
