Words of Inspiration
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.”

“I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”
“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.”
