THE WORLD NEEDS MEN (AND WOMEN)...

who cannot be bought;
whose word is their bond;
who put character above wealth;
who possess opinions and a will;
who are larger than their vocations;
who do not hesitate to take chances;
who will not lose their individuality in a crowd;
who will be as honest in small things as in great things;
who will make no compromise with wrong;
whose ambitions are not confined to their own selfish desires;
who will not say they do it "because everybody else does it;"
who are true to their friends through good report and evil
report, in adversity as well as in prosperity;
who do not believe that shrewdness, cunning, and
hardheadedness are the best qualities for winning success;
who are not ashamed or afraid to stand for the truth when it is unpopular;
who can say "no" with emphasis, although all the rest of the world says "yes."

Emily,
Finally another follower! As you can see I don't have many followers yet, and it is so exciting to finally have reached five followers!
I am glad you like my blog. I I hope to make some changes in the future, and spice my site up a little, but don't worry, it will still be calm and elegant, because I love that look. It is so me.
Thank you for commenting. So few people take the time and I was begining to wonder if anyone really liked my ramblings or not. :) Look forward to hearing from you again.
God bless,
Kaomi
