To accomplish great things, we must not only act but also dream. Not only plan but also believe.

Anatole France said it, but Becki Heimerle gave me a mug with that written on it. Becki, a speech pathologist at the Illinois Children's School and Rehabilitation Center in Chicago, gave the mug to me when I left the center in 1992 to become a rehabilitation services supervisor for the Illinois Department of Rehabilitation Services in Champaign. While the mug broke into a few pieces flying from Chicago to Tapa in 2006, my dreams to accomplish great things have not been shattered.
