Katie Kirkpatrick Godwin

At her high school graduation, as co-valedictorian of her graduating class, she had this to say:


"Life is a fragile chain of experiences held together by love. If there could be only one thing in life to learn, it would be to love.
"If only you can love enough, you will be the happiest and most powerful person in the world."


She wasn't sick when she said those words.  Perhaps I am late to this story [2005] but this puts life into perspective in so many ways.  As sad as it is - it does bring hope.


I feel like I could conquer the world ... if just for a moment.
Thank you Mrs. Godwin.

Okay, I have tears streaming down my face right now - thank you for sharing that story - it doesn't matter if it was 2005, its still as poignant today.

Hugs Skippy!
