"So, here I stand at the crossroads... Four years from now, if I persistently do the next right thing, I believe the possibilities are limitless... I will have a serenity and peace of mind that will illuminate my life and allow me to help others. The feeling of love and connectedness I have felt will become perpetual so that I will out-distance my wildest dreams; and look back one day and realize that the hardest times in my life were the most important."- Todd
