***Here are a few words of wisdom:

In 1961, Vilma Martinez was a senior in high school who wanted to go on

to college, but her counselor refused to advise her because Vilma was

Mexican-American. Vilma didn't let this stop her. She believed in herself,

so she wrote to the University of Texas anyway. Just two and a half years 

later, she graduated and went on to law school at Columbia University. At

the age of 30, Vilma Martinez became president of the Mexican-American 

Legal Defense and Education Fund.

Here's what she has to say about education:

        Education is very important. It prepares you. You equip

        yourself to help others. It gives you the tools to compete.

Fortunately, the world has changed a great deal in the last two decades.

It's changed because of the unstoppable people like Vilma Martinez who

believed in their own potential and overcame all the obstacles.

Remember, there are teachers and counselors today who are committed to

helping you realize your fullest potential. The question is: Are you?

***With something to think about, Make it a great day . . or not.

     The choice is yours.
