To my daughters, Do not let the past define who you are or who you will become. Through the good times and the bad, always be kind, empathetic, compassionate and above all, be strong. Strive to be the best you can be and always believe in yourself. With that, you can achieve anything.

To the world, Remember to be kind and courteous to one another. Be compassionate. It’s not just about sympathizing, but empathizing. Showing empathy will make you a better person. Work hard to achieve your life’s goals and dreams. If I can do it, so can you.
