"Everybody can be great, because anybody can serve.

You don't have to have a college degree to serve.
You don't have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve.
You don't have to know the second theory
of thermodynamics in physics to serve.

You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love."
-- Martin Luther King, Jr. --
