Comments from students

・It was incomparable with what I have been through. I have yet to work hard and will endeavor with whatever comes my way.

・This story gave me courage. The athlete did not give up his dreams just because he had no legs. Striving for his dreams was encouraging and really something. I though I could and should do more. I give up doing things too easily but now I want to try harder without giving up.

・I always felt sorry when I saw the disabled but after reading Making the Most of Your Opportunities, I want to look at them as hard-working people. I do not want to look down at them and feel sorry for them. They should be respected as they are working harder than others.

・There are people progressive although they are less fortunate than me. I started to wonder what I was doing. It was encouraging to read Making the Most of Your Opportunities because I was having an array of problems but now feel that I am ready to face and resolve my problems.
