Seemingly little decisions can have significant impact. One of my favorite pastimes is to hypothesize the “what if’s” of history. In the hindsight of events, it is utterly fascinating how seemingly small, mundane decisions can have enormous historical ramifications. It often makes me wonder how my own life would be…
