Your life

Yesterday I saw The King's Speech for the second time. It touched me even more to witness the struggles of the man Bertie, soon to be King George VI, and his triumphant tackling of his fear. With the myriad of problems in this world, I especially applaud the Oscar decisions for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Actor for a film chronicling a personal disability being overcome. Below is an inspirational quote that summarizes this film and aptly applies to all of us as we live life as kings and queens of our own personal worlds. The message is clear that we each can make a big difference by starting with ourselves. Kudos to Albert Frederick Arthur George!

'Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfulfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what it is still possible for you to do.' Pope John XIII, 965-972
