Quotes of the Month


"Freedom is about Choice and Wellness. Without choice we do not have freedom and risk descent into despair. Freedom however has two polarities. Freedom is not just the right and ability to DO something,  it is also the inalienable right and ability to NOT do something! It all hinges on our learned ability to understand what is right and good for us. Empowered and informed choices have positive consequences!" -Larry Larson-

"It always seems impossible until its done!" -Nelson Mandela-
"Courage is the decision that something is more important than fear!"
