The Great American Struggle

Two Weeks Ago…

Throughout my whole educational experience, I was never athletic. My most embarrassing moment will always be the time I “ran” the mile in 5th grade for the Presidential Fitness Test. All of my other classmates had finished and I still had more than a quarter mile to go. I was out of breath, had a...
