I learnt a lot from the stories my uncle, aunts and grandparents told me, that no one is perfect and people are not judged by their worst or weakest moments. We do better when we work together. Our differences matter but our common humanity matters a lot. We cannot build the future without helping others build theirs. If you live long you will make mistakes, but if you learn from them you’ll become a better person. The main thing is never quit, never quit and never quit!
