However, all those things put me on the path on which I find myself at this moment in time. They have taught me what I know now.

Respect for a person's self and the property of others, recognizing the inestimable worth of every friend, and a sense of true connection with everyone I have ever loved and will love are a few of the products of my journey, and I would not trade these lessons I've learned for anything.
