This quote: "Life is like a grindstone. Whether it grinds you down or polishes you up, that's up to you," came from Gary Ceran's dad.
We know Gary. He taught Her Excellency of Mousehole in a private school a few years ago.
On Christmas Eve, 2006, a drunken driver hit their car and his wife and two of his children were killed.
He forgave. He's a survivor. He's being polished.
He doesn't have a great career. He doesn't vacation in Paradise but he's happy. In fact he was one of the happiest people I've ever met. He loved the kids he taught--loved my child and her cohorts. Really loved them.
He is one of my hero's.
