DELAND, Fla. -- We all have struggles in our lives, but it is up to each of us us to channel those struggles into something meaningful.

The lives that we live on this earth are a blessing within ourselves while time progresses like clockwork. We are never too young, never too old or never too inexperienced to accomplish anything.

The world is at our fingertips. We should never doubt our capabilities. In a sea of fish where others may not aim for the same future each of us can attempt to be that person who challenges the preconceived notions of what can be accomplished in a lifetime.
