Self-determination is fine but needs to be tempered with self-control.
The essence of our effort to see that every child has a chance must be to assure each an equal opportunity, not to become equal, but to become different-to realize whatever unique potential of body, mind and spirit he or she possesses.
I do believe I am special. My special gift is my vision, my commitment, and my willingness to do whatever it takes.
If you want to turn a vision into reality, you have to give 100% and never stop believing in your dream.
