CONFIDENCE
BEING DIFFERENT AND BEING REMEMBERED. I have an 8 year old brother with Down Syndrome. He was born when I was 5. He is my best friend. Everywhere we go people either stop and stare, or are friendly and approach us with nice comments. Either way, we are remembered. And I'm never embarrassed or ashamed.

Kristiana Santiago I know, I know. EVERYONE says their mom is their hero (heroine, technically), but for me it's really true. She doesn't pity many people and she has shown me that all you need to achieve your dreams is hard work. I thank her for inspiring me each and everyday.

yani from jurong APRIL 1, 2014
I like it

Anderson from Colatina, ES - Brasil JULY 10, 2013
Fiquei feliz quando disseram que eu sabia guardar segredo, devemos ajudar e respeitar as pessoas em suas confidencias. I was glad when they said I could keep a secret, we should help and respect people in their confidences.

Kelly from America MAY 31, 2013
So inspiring!! I need to work on being confident in my looks, personality, and strenths instead of worrying about my flaws all the time. Confidence really is an important quality to have.

Tina Marie from LaGrange, IL AUGUST 29, 2011
This site is a great example of God's work in action - I am using this site to have 8th graders create an original inspirational billboard phrase. Thanks
