The Human Spirit

Remember Joe? Remember the story I told you about the night he was almost killed?

Joe worked hard to be one among the living again........The past two years he has not only worked hard in accomplishing the everyday aspects of life...He worked hard to move forward and make positive changes.

As of today, Joe is a High School Graduate. He passed his test with flying colors.

Funny thing is now he is talking about going to college.

You GO JOE!!!

We are so proud of you!!!!

Sometimes a little bump on the head is good for the human spirit.  

I don't know about you, but, I think we should all have cake.
