PARABLE OF THE PENCIL -You will be able to do great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held by someone higher than you. -It is ok to experience a painful sharpening from time to time. -The most important part of you will always be what’s on the inside. Be men and women of honor, relying on your inner core values and morals. -You will make mistakes. Everyone does. That is why pencils have an eraser. Make your mark. Make a difference wherever you go.
