" In life, everyone climbs the same mountain. Some people reach the top faster than others and some stop at different heights. But one must remember that there are many trails to reach the top. Each of those trails has different degrees of difficulty. Some are more fortunate than others. Think about this...Of those who have reached the mountain top, how many of them have the courage to go back down and try a different trail? Will they still be able to reach the top if they choose a different trail with a higher degree of difficulty?"

" Things happen for a reason. If you have a bad day and you don't think you could get through, always remember that know matter how bad something may seem, there is a reason why they happen. There is a plan for everyone on this earth, if it means learning from our mistakes and passing it on so someone else doesn't go through it. Could mean we were strong enough to go through something bad when someone else may be too weak to go through and we teach them from our experience, in the process we become a better person and learn from our mistakes. I feel that we all need to think positive to help us through every day of our lives. Try to smile more and it will rub off on everyone around else you. They will pass it on and we will all be happier and enjoy being alive."

" Keep your eyes on the prize and your soul on the goal."
--- Written in 2001 by D. Speegle --- MinnesotaNovember 21, 2001
I used to think darkness was a salvation
Away from the silicone and fronts of procreation
Till I realized it was just procrastination
You can't escape the darkness
Show a light within the pitch of night
Be a leader in the struggle for wrong and right
Stumble forward and never lose your sight
You can't escape the darkness
