Feed the tiger or become its prey, freetude idea 16, freedom attitude

A couple of months ago, I read a great book called the "Life of Pi" (based on a true story). I read it all night. Imagine my long day on Monday...

Pi’s story began with his childhood in India where his father owned a Zoo.
Pi’s family departed India for Toronto taking many of the animals. Pi was only 16 years old.
The ship sank and Pi found himself alone in a lifeboat with a zebra, an orangutan, a hyena, and a tiger named Richard Parker. Pi and Richard Parker survived after over 200 days in the Pacific Ocean.

Pi took life one day at the time with the focus of reaching his freedom goal.
Pi's survival was a combination of strength, strategy, belief and courage.
Pi could either feed the tiger or become its prey.
The tiger's survival was Pi's duty. Pi's own survival was his goal.
Strength and the strategy fed his duty. Belief fed his goal.
Courage fed both.

Courage controls tigers.
Courage transcends belief.
Courage is freedom.

Idea: Miami-Dade County adopted a policy that accepts receipt, solicitation, and evaluation of public-private partnerships for projects. The idea is to submit a proposal to use the parking machines for advertisement. Ideally, I would partner with a big company (Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Carnival...) for exclusive or partial leasing rights.
