We have known kings and queens, and we've known presidents and prime \r\nministers, but the most extraordinary person whom I have ever known in \r\nmy life is Mattie Stepanek. His life philosophy was 'Remember to play \r\nafter every storm!' and his motto was: 'Think Gently, Speak Gently, Live\r\n Gently'. He wanted to be remembered as "a poet, a peacemaker, and a philosopher who played". ~ Jimmy Carter
