You can and you will!

Within you resides unfathomable power, 
A strength that emerges in response to adversity. 
Don't let fear stop you from pursuing your dreams. 
With determination and fortitude, you will conquer the bold. 
Every adversity is an opportunity to reflect. 
The path may be difficult, but please don’t fret. 
You must recognize that you have the fire within to succeed. 
In this journey we call life, embrace every adventure. 
With perseverance and courage, 
You will overcome the hill. 
You can and you will!

Letting Go

Sometimes letting go is the hardest thing to do. 
However, we must move forward. 
Let go & let God.

Guam will prevail!

Guam poets 
Guam authors 
Guam stars 
Guam storytellers 
Guam masters 
Guam teachers 
Guam wisdom is all around us. 

If we just take the time to see the richness in the hidden gems 
We can experience wonder like no other 
To impact generations 
To save our dying CHamoru language  
To save our identity  
To show the world that we are survivors and 
We will prevail!

Nothing to Fear

 "Nothing in life is to be feared.  It is only to be understood."

No limits

We must be mindful not to place limits on greatness.  It is through one's ongoing vision and dreaming for the best that one can achieve great things.  In fact, the following quote says it all:

"You can't put a limit on anything.  The more you dream, the farther you get." 

                                                                                     -Michael Phelps

Keep up the faith!

Keep up the faith

For the Lord makes us strong.

Keep up the faith

For if you put your heart into everything

You will see what God will do through you.

Keep up the faith

For if God is on our side

Who can ever be against us?

Keep up the faith

For the Lord makes us strong!
