Kara DeFrias “I Can See Stars: Defying the Odds”

on February 11, 2012


“Did you know Space Shuttle Atlantis had only a 30% chance of taking off this past summer? But it did. In glorious fashion, set beautifully against the Florida sky and against seemingly insurmountable odds, it did, only 3.1 miles away from where I was standing. No matter what life throws at you, whatever challenge comes your way, don’t let anyone tell you you can’t do something, or that you only have a slim chance of reaching your goals. Whether it’s a 30% chance of getting into college, getting that job, or beating cancer: remember Atlantis.”
