I learned that one cannot compare the tragic circumstances of one person to those of another.
Each of us struggles with challenges, faces them, and either overcomes them or is overcome by them.
Of all the senses I feel blessed to possess, a sense of optimism is my most cherished. As I grow older, it is the sense I fight most to preserve.
“Once I knew only darkness and stillness. Now I know hope and joy.”
Together we can do this my friends.
