Before I tell you what inspires me . . . and before you read any further, take a few moments, look at this image and reflect on these two questions.
ONE: What do you see when you look at the image? In particular, what do you see in this little boy?
TWO: What do you think it took, for this inspiring young boy to get to "what you see in this picture?
So STOP and reflect. Take as long as you need. Then continue on with the material below the image.
Here is what I see? I see
joy, love energy, excitement, enthusiasm, delight, vital optimism...
courage, faith, hope, persistence, perseverance, an indefatigable spirit...
