“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

The rock was the largest I’d ever seen.

You may wonder why I hold such an interest in a rock, when, after all, it is only a rock. But, this rock, this particular heaven-made solid formation of minerals has a story to tell. One, it has borne the feet of several hundred teen-aged hooligans as they jump from its heights into the water below. This was not some sick daredevil trick, more like a rite of passage for the extremely brave. Those that leapt would be known as the ones meant to do great things with their lives. And truth be told, they would. I can recall seven names of those that made themselves into something special. They all took the leap of faith. It goes to show that if you are brave enough to do something so stupid, you are brave enough to do nearly anything you put your mind to.

Two, it nearly killed me. That is the bigger story. It may take an entire book to write, but write it, I will.
