Jean-Joueles du Soleil

Posted by Picasa

"It is not the critic who counts. Not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strive valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

"Citizenhip in a Republic," Theodore Roosevelt, Sorbonne, Paris, April 23, 1910

Dear Joueles' Mom,

The courage both you and Joueles and your wonderful mom and dad have shown over the last 14 years has been an incredible story that could fill another blog.

Thank you for giving Joueles a wonderful life.
