“The day will come when my life will pass, my memory be forgotten and my life story put aside. What I hope is that the values and lessons I share in this book will remain and be passed on. I hope that any young person who reads this book will be inspired to reach for his or her dreams; and for those who feel discouraged with life, to press on and not give up.
Our lives are what we make of it, and I have made the most of mine. I hope this book will inspire you to live your life to the fullest. Let your story be one that will be worthy to be told to those who come after you.”
