A ship in the harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for. - unknown
My eighth grade english teacher, Mrs. Weber, first shared this quote with me in a letter she wrote me during my high school years. She continued to support and teach me long after I graduated from her class. I still have the letters she wrote me throughout my teenage years and they are still able, even all these years later, to give me strength and help me find my way. Mrs. Weber was a lady of class, humor and love. Even after her death, she continues to shape who I am and how I live.
