Voices of Hope: Voices from our Noble Heritage

By Howard Rainer
"Happiness or depression; the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat.  Each of us in our lives experiences highs and lows.  Life has a way of delivering both.  But we, as individuals and as a people, do not need to be either confined or defined by what happens to us, or how we feel about it.  We are bigger than the things that happen to us."
