“Write me of hope and love, and hearts that endured.” - Emily Dickinson

 

You can let the life and the family you were born into dictate the definition of your very being, regardless of what you do or do not have, or, with grit, self-sufficiency and self-reliance, you can rise above your circumstances, charter your own course and change your life, all the while empowering others to do the same.  -Elise Crawford
