Being Labeled – Ping Pong Anyone

They declared I was mentally retarded and emotionally disturbed and unbalanced.  In spite of their labels and best efforts to define me, I was able to rise above their definitions for me and expectations of and for meYOU CAN TOO!!!!

I over came these labels to attend one of our nations military academy as a midshipman candidate and be offered an opportunity to attend two others.  I graduate from law school and due to my leadership responsibilities within the American Bar Association I would have the privilege and responsibility to advise on and suggest policy measures in the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Senate, and the United Nations?

WHAT MIGHT YOU DISCOVER YOU ARE CAPABLE OF IF YOU DID NOT LET OTHER PEOPLES EXPECTATIONS OR VISION OF YOU HOLD YOU BACK?
