YOU CAN BEAT THE ODDS AND BE A WINNER, TOO!

Bury him in the snows of Valley Forge, and you have a George Washington.

Raise him in abject poverty and you have an Abraham Lincoln.

Subject him to bitter religious prejudice, and you have a Disraeli.

Label him"too stupid to learn," and you have a Thomas Edison.

Tell her she's too old to start painting at eighty years old, and you have a Grandma Moses.

Have him or her born black in a society filled with racial discrimination, and you have a Booker T. Washington, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, George Washington Carver or Matin Luther King, Jr.

Make him the first child to survive in a poor Italian family of eighteen children, and you have an Enrico Caruso.

Afflict him with periods of depression so severe that he cut off his own ear, and you have a Vincent van Gogh.

Tell her in the late 1800's and early 1900's that only men can be scientists, and you have a Madame Curie, who eventually won two Nobel prizes - one for physics and the other for chemistry.

Tell a young boy who loved to sketch and draw that he has no talent, and you have a Walt Disney.

Take a crippled child whose only home he ever knew was an orphanage, and you have a James E. West, who became the first chief executive of the Boy Scouts of America.

Make him a second fiddle in an obscure South American orchestra, and you have a Toscanni.

SPIT ON HIM AND CRUCIFY HIM, AND YOU HAVE JESUS CHRIST!!

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Phil. 4:13.
