To the girl who lives each day with passion and drive, happy birthday.
Your actions thunder across the halls of Yamaku with more strength than any words could muster.
You're an inspiration to us all. You showed us how sometimes it's hard to connect to others, even when you really want to. Sometimes the easiest way to touch another person is to heat up that fire of competition that resides deep in their core.
When that fire is heated up?
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, it's the fact that you're now playing that counts. What matters is that you're there at all, that by standing out in the world and taking action you're proving your worth, proving that you care about something.
Dare to do. It's as simple as that. What you're doing isn't nearly as important as how you're doing it.
Care about something.
Live with passion.
“When he is pushed to the edges of despair, a man has no choice but to sink or grasp at the fleeting wisps of hope, fight with all his power against the inevitabilities of his fate and struggle against the impossible. For even if he fails, at least he fails knowing that he dared greatly.”
