Sometimes, in life, you are the windshield,
and sometimes you are the bug.

Be of good cheer.
Do not think of today’s failures,
but of the success that may come tomorrow.
You have set yourselves a difficult task,
but you will succeed if you persevere;
and you will find joy in overcoming obstacles.
Remember, no effort that we make
to attain something beautiful
is ever lost.
-Helen Keller, submitted by Shawna P., Sandy UT
