Things happen... You are handed misfortune...
Have you been touched by the hands of adversity?
And if you have, have you asked yourself this question?
"Will I rise above or fall below?"


He could of fallen from his sorrows having cancer...

If you ever have a feeling that you can't do it, because...
(You fill in the blank)
It's time to rethink...
Think for yourself and think about the guy that did it...

This Great Canadian hero Terry Fox never let life swallow him up, instead cancer gave him more power to step forward with everything he had and rise above to the hands of adversity.

Not to stumble.
But if you do, get up as fast as you can and keep on going.

Maybe you'll rise so high that you'll make moves that will flourish within you and around you to the world.
