Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done.
Here's the thing that makes life so interesting. The theory of evolution claims that only the strong shall survive... but the theory of competition says just because you're strong doesn't mean you win.
The other guy may in fact be the favorite. The odds may be stacked against us. But what the odds don't know is that this isn't a math test.
This is a completely different kind of test. One where passion has a funny way of trumping logic.
So before the game begins, just remember, out here, the results don't always add up!
No matter what the stats may say, no matter what the experts may think, or what the commentators may have predicted, when the race is on ALL BETS ARE OFF!
Don't be surprised if someone decides to flip the script, and take a pass on saying uncle! And then suddenly, as the old saying goes, we've got ourselves a game.
It is not our darkness that most frightens us.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
There are numeral factors that contribute to the challenges that we face today, tomorrow, and each day beyond that.
Alone, we are but human, but together we are the will of humanity.
We have within us, unique from anything else on this planet, the undying tenacity, the reckless hope to face down each challenge with vigor.
If one of us shall fall, another will take our place, and another, and another!
This is our cause! Life! Be it one life or a billion, its all the same!
This body is only a shell. You cannot to touch us. You cannot harm us. We are not afraid.
JOIN US! THERE IS HOPE!
