  • A true hero

    To Terry Fox:

    A lot of people outside of Canada probably don’t know who you are but you are a hero me to many Canadians. I remember I first heard about you and your Marathon of Hope in the spring of 1980 when I was 14 years old. You were just 21 and had lost a leg to cancer when you were 18. Despite having only 1 leg you set out to run across C…read more

    • Wow. Terry sounded like an amazing and caring person. Terry may have not been able to finish his run here on earth but i assure you he is finishing his marathon in heaven. Do not beat yourself up Pete, you were 14 when you were at a stage of fear. We live and we learn and thats what you did. Im proud of your growth, continue to be brave and fearless.

      • Thanks for the replies to my letter Kayjah and Roger. I hope that through writing my letter that spread Terry’s story to others that may have never heard about him. I think it is cool that Roger had already heard about him. I hope that maybe someone will read it and be inspired to push through when encountering something that seems overwhelming…read more

    • Pete,

      Not only did I know about Terry, I actually shared a post on my Facebook about literally just Friday afternoon. I’ve had the opportunity to visit Canada several times visiting both Toronto and Montreal in my late teens. I still want to visit Halifax and see the memorial to the victims of the Titanic disaster.

      It is so incredible what…read more

  • One Teacher Can Make All the Difference

    Dear Mrs.Shumsky,
    When I entered your 4th grade class way back in the fall of 1960 I was the most quiet, shy and insecure little girl. So shy, I never spoke to any adults ever except my parents and grandparents.My teachers leading up to 4th grade were cold and distant and probably did not like me because I was a weak student with very…read more

    A road not taken yet

    My childhood dream was to grow up and be a comedian. It all started when I was in the eighth grade when I had to give a book report in front of the whole class. I was nervous about getting up and speaking in front of the entire class. I was about halfway through my presentation, and I said something that was accidentally funny. The whole class…read more

  • How I surprised myself when I became a stripper in a high school play

    I remember when I was a little girl, about 8 years old I watched a movie with Marilyn Monroe. I thought she was so beautiful and glamorous. I decided I wanted to be an actress. This was the very last career suited for an extremely shy child who never spoke to any adults except her parents. But something about being on stage or in front of a camera…read more

    • Shelley,

      The allure of the theater is something I also share. Like you my very shy and timid personality kept me from being very popular at school. After high school a local theater company was doing a production of The Phantom of the Opera. I decided this was the time I would step out of my shell. I remember clearly a few of the people who were…read more

  • The Perfect Game

    I greatly recall the day I first wanted to be a baseball player. I was 11 years old and watching the 1995 World Series cheering on my Cleveland Indians as they faced off against the Atlanta Braves. I had not been to school as I had just had my tonsils removed that Monday. I couldn’t talk but I watched as I was amazed by Tom Glavine and his p…read more

  • How my dream started

    Dear Unsealers,

    I remember the exact day I started to dream about my future. It was 1995, a year after the New York Rangers won the Stanley Cup. My dad took me to Game 4 of the second round of the postseason. The Rangers were playing the Philadelphia Flyers. New York was down 3-0 in the series, and we went to the game hoping we’d witness the b…read more

    I have just finished my freshman year of college. I have made many good friends and achieved good grades, and even joined a few clubs.

      As someone who has struggled with a speech impediment myself, I enjoyed reading your letter. Your courage is inspiring. Fear can be a tough thing to overcome.

      You are so right. It is important to go beyond your comfort zone and experience new worlds. New people, new activities, and new places. Life is so much more fulfilling when you just go for it. I try to push myself every day to do something new and scary. I always find that what I thought was scary was really exciting. It is a…read more

    For Those who dare to dream

    Everyone on the planet has a dream. Having a dream in our life is essential because it is through it that we set our objectives and strive to accomplish something greater in our lives. My dream seemed impossible at first, but its special to me. I’ve always wanted to study abroad. Not only was it my wish, but it was also my mother’s and brother’s…read more

Dream Catching takes time I have learned that some people older than me have lost faith in their dreams; either saying I’m too old and I regret not having to chase my dreams, I tend to feel sorry for them.

    Dear Dreamer

    I know the place you may be in right now. Wondering if this dream you have is too hard to achieve. It may seem impossible or just not to be. Don’t ever give up, please.

    As a child I dreamed of growing up and being respected for the work I do. About 10 years ago that dream seemed light years away.

    You see I was laying in a hospital bed with a…read more
