Since the age of seventeen months, I've wrestled the dragon inside me. Through the ups and downs, the highs and lows, the frustrations and disappointments. Sometimes, it seemed like the dragon would win; that it would bare its teeth, sink them into my heart, and never let go. But through it all, I've never let the dragon keep me down. I've risen up to face the challenge--to tame the dragon that lives inside me. To make sure that the dragon never wins. WE control the dragon. We NEVER let it control us. EVER. Even when it seems hopeless and unending, we PERSIST. We PERSERVERE. We PREVAIL.
