"I remember my Mother telling me at an early age to accept each person I meet as my equal. She taught me that everybody has been given a special talent, whether it be humor, creativity, a genuine loving heart, the art of truly listening, singing, dancing, writing, painting..whatever the gift, it should be shared with others. Now I wish to share that beautiful lesson with you and hopefully you too, will pass it on."
