Joe Piscatella is the author of several widely-read books on health including Don't Eat Your Heart Out and Controlling Your Fat Tooth. He often gives lectures around the country encouraging people to live healthier lives. One of his lectures is entitled: "Life Is Not a Dress Rehearsal" In one sense, we would agree with that. We need to make the most of life here on earth, in terms of health, in terms of service, in terms of characters. Of course, there is another sense in which life here really is a dress rehearsal. We are preparing here for life hereafter.
