"Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction. Bad things do happen; how you respond to them defines your character and the quality of your life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity that my parents are gone and that I have to leave college, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the good things. I have two brand new family members that I just can't wait to get to know,"
