    I read stories like this and feel ashamed that I ever complained that the air conditioning in the van doesn't work, or that I don't have the latest electronic gadgetry. I also wonder at the teenagers who complain that they don't have a cell phone or the one with all the bonus features.

    These young people are a modern day reminder that freedom comes with a price and that sometimes we have to make an effort to get things that so many of us think should just be handed out because we are in the room.

    I wish them all well.

    I watched Nowella during her last year in school, she is a tenacious and hard worker, having overcome so much, she is bound to be successful.

    You are a true inspiration!! I can't believe a person could survive what you have and be where you are. Thank you for being a leader to our American youth. How would it be to have children appreciate their free educations. Best of everything to you.
