"Teach by Example" is a spot where a simple statement can be profound. Our hero thought that "all he did was hold the light," but now, looking back as an adult, he saw the wisdom his father was sharing with him, and how important it was to serve.

My blessings are many and my heart is filled with gratefulness for the gift of living, for the ability to love and be loved, for the opportunity to see the everyday wonders of creation, for sleep and water, for a mind that thinks and a body that feels.
