Dertermination

Determination is all it takes. My sister is in the group called The Suburb 7. When they were 12 years of age there was no movie theater in the town that we live in. So they decieded to go tlk to the mayor about making a movie theater. It took them 5 years! BUt they stuck to the job and never gave up. So that was really cool. I love my sister.

  1. Hi Daniel,

    There is a lot that can be accomplished when someone is really determined. I thought of this poem when I read your post. It is one of my favorites. I hope you don’t mind me sharing it.

    Don’t Quit

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
    When the road your trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit
    Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

    Life is queer with its twists and its turns,
    As everyone of us sometimes learns,
    And many a failure turns about
    When they might have won, had they stuck it out.
    Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
    You may succeed with another blow.

    Often the struggler has given up
    When he might have captured the victors cup;
    And he learned too late when the night came down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.

    Success is failure turned inside out
    The silver tint of the clouds of doubt
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It may be near when it seems so far;
    So stick to the fight when your hardest hit,
    It’s when things seem worst that you mustn’t quit!

    Hope you have a great day!

  3. Hi Daniel,

    And yes, I posted that one comment in the wrong place. Sorry about that.

  4. Dan, you are a very sweet brother. It’s nice to hear you say you love your sister, I wish I had a sister, but alas, only a brother for me. As for determination, from what I have read on your blog, you are every bit as determined as your sister.
