“Life is a rainbow road, multicoloured with the most brilliant hues and contrasting with the darkest tones. It is illuminated by the light of success and rutted by the tracks of failure. Tears of sadness and joy wash its surface while the clouds of doubt and insecurity dapple its course. As we traverse this highway, we can reach the highest pinnacles or descend to the darkest valleys. Finally, when the end of the road is in sight, we may cast our eyes to the distant horizon where everything began; and say with conviction,
“That sure was one hell of a journey.”
