Like most of you, I learned my values from my parents. They did their best to teach me the difference between what was right and what was wrong. Many of the opinions and feelings that I now have about certain things in this world are as a result of those teachings. Luckily for me, I had the benefit of two wonderfully loving and educated parents who always let me make my own mistakes. Often I would fall down before my parents would attempt to help me back up again, which almost ensured that I would have learned my well-needed lesson – which I did, many times over.
