Favorite Quote:
You give up your childhood. You miss proms and games and high-school events, and people say it's awful... I say it was a good trade. You miss something but I think I gained more than I lost. Mary Lou Retton.

Another quote by her: Each one of us ha"Each one of us has a fire in our heart for something. It's our goal in life to find it and keep it lit."

Are we humans that destined to change the world?
Are we ants being smashed under people’s feet as they walk to their destination?
Are we little flies flying around hoping not to be smashed.
Are we squirrels chasing each other up and down trees?
Are we birds flying south for the winter?
Are we just humans?
Are we just trying to find our way?
Do we have a path?
Are we destined to be something?
Something special?
Something incredible?
Something unique?
Or are we just supposed to be ourselves?
May be we are supposed to be asking ourselves these questions?
To answer one question?
Who are we?

The author's comments:
I decided to write this because I recently discovered that I don't who I am. I think we should all know who we are and why we are here.
