Motivation Tuesday: Never Stop Living!

These real, everyday people inspire me. Not the Lance Armetrongs, not the Serena Wiliams, not the Donald Trumps. People like you and me who live, love, work, think, help others, study, protect and fight for our loved ones. You and me. Maybe different in the outside, maybe different in our beleifs, our culture, race, but the same fighting hearts, the same wonders about life and questions about death.
