This I believe.

I believe that I should be extremely thankful for the wonderful parents that I call my own. They have played a crucial role in my life – teaching me about the important things in life, such as religion, a hard work ethic, honesty, and responsibility for my actions, just to name a few. I can proudly say that I am what I am because of the warm, loving environment I call family.
